  1. You know what I think....I think Maxthon 6 should have Adblockplus,a sidebar and the old classic bins from Maxthon 5.

  7. If you unluckily lose bookmarks, you can try to restore the bookmarks by using the backup file. 1. Open Maxthon 6 browser. 2. Open the installation path, for example, D:\Users\lenovo\AppData\Local\Maxthon\ 3. Open the folder "User Data" under the folder "Maxthon" 3. Find the account folder you'd like to restore data, such as "Default" 4. Under the folder "Default," you can find and open the folder "Backups" > "BookMarks" 5. Choose a backup file, copy it, then paste it to your account folder, such as "Default" 7. Rename the backup file as "Bookmarks," no file suffix required; delete the previous file "Bookmarks." 8. Restart the browser.

  8. Me Too, I really Hope That MX6 Can be Like MX5 with Chrome's Functions. I still Waiting for Side bar, Status bar, Mx5's Translation Box, Mx5's Mute tab. And Auto Refresh too .. Didn't Fixed yet ..

  9. Thanks for optimized "save as image" function 🙂 👍 But dont understand what changes where made in "Mute" . The same useless "Mute site" with the right click menu. All you need to do is make CLICK (not right click) on microphone icon on tab and that mutes TAB (not site). Show me one situation where you need "mute site". "Tab mute" is waaay better. And if you add status bar (with possibility to add there zoom +/- and diff. tools) - MX6 will be #2 browser in the world (after mx5) To make it #1, all you need make maxnote old way. ( but "mute tab", "global mute" on status bar and "zoom" on status bar are more important for me personally)

  10. Well, another version has come out, probably the fifth or sixth in a row, but the promise is still not being fulfilled. "will be done in the next version" - every time you write, and the start page, as it was with colored squares, remains! Where are the promised "screenshots" instead of the "block color" on the start page?

  11. That's the problem with MX6. It's been in development for over a year and we still haven't got basic features from MX4 and 5. For me it's still for testing only.

  12. Hi rambo, I tried to test this issue but haven't reproduced. Could you provide me a video of it? Did you use the latest version 6.1.2.1305? It will be added to MX6 as soon as possible. ?

  13. I am still missing the status bar with IP and CPU and network usage indicators. Also, while the new download manager does offer the "Open" option, it still saves the file in the selected location instead of a temporary folder, which is undesired; I want files that I open directly (like for example installers or archives) to be saved to a temp folder that gets cleaned, not to clog up space on my storage drives.

  14. Please tell me, will we be able to see the sidebar in the future or not .. Even if not, I am not waiting and contemplating for nothing .. And Thank You.

  15. 1. I recommend you to fully uninstall mx6 by uninstaller like IoBit uninstaller which will completely erase all leftovers 2. reboot windows 3. check windows default browser to see if there is still sign of Maxthon If not 4. clean install Mx6 to the default location

  17. What I really don't lke about MX6 is size of tabs. Look at this and compare MX5, Vivaldi, MX6 and FireFox (Opera GX have same tab size as MX5). Maxthon 6 have biggest tab of all. also bookmarks are way bigger then in MX5, because it doesn't cut text from them how it does MX5. At this moment, without functions that MX5 have by default: Snap, Video Pop-up and download, External Tools (love it, very useful) and External Download Manager MX looks and feels like another Chromium clone. Also I don't like how in MX6 "Recently visited sites" was made. Its easier for me to click on little arrow then do RMB click. At least Passkeeper on PC works now...

  18. I've been using Maxthon since MyIE, and I've always liked the fact that it was DIFFERENT - mostly that it wasn't IE or FF or Chrome. Today I look at version 6 and see that it is more and more like Chrome and I don't mean the engine but the interface - that awful, disgusting, simple, ugly chrome interface! Why? Where is all the good from MX4 and MX5 how this browser differed from others? Do the downloaded files really have to be written to the disk and appear as tiles at the bottom just like in Chrome? The download manager in MX5 had no flaws! It had an OPEN button that made running programs straight after downloading it. Now I have problems to explain to people over the phone (IT support) where to look for the downloaded files. For what? This is the wrong way. Let's not spoil good solutions! The already favorite tiles on the start page have been broken between MX4 and MX5 (Why do the tiles change position after removing one?) let's not break any more. Please - don't forget that for a developer, MX6 is engine and code, but for a user - like us - it's mostly an INTERFACE. We need good, smart solutions OTHER than in Chrome, because if they are the same, why do we need MX? I hope, I will have reasons to stay with MX. After so many years is like family for me.

  19. Recently started testing and using Maxthon 6 again, {without login} There is still 1 thing I ABSOLUTELY Hate is the Tab management {Since previous versions of MX 6 had issue's causing it to crash when opening tons of tabs, i could not test this fully} The older version had a nice an initiative feel where you could still see what tabs you had, and a drop-down menu when you filled up your tab bar The newer version has the same feel as Crome giving a Cluttered mess of a Tab bar if you have lots of tabs open at the same time. {on a 24" FHD screen the limit is around 20-30 Tabs, before its getting to cluttered/ unusable, because you can no longer read what the tab says} _____________________________ I have 2 Idea's to fix this. option 1: revive the older Tab bar system from MX 5 {This had the best feel and usefulness, since you can still read the tabs, and have a drop-down menu with all excess tabs} {This can be done trough a "official" add-on, or build into as a core mechanic} Option 2: "Lockable" Group tabs which can each hold up to ?? Tabs total. For a total of ?? Group tabs for a total of ?? Tabs. {User defined group tab limit, so each user can adjust it depending on their screen size, since a 27 Inch screen can hold more tabs than a 24 inch screen} {With a setting to Auto generate a new group map, when the Bar hits the user defined limit- amount of existing groups} {can be turned on or off} {each Group tab will get a Drop down menu for Its Grouped tabs} {It is a bit similar to the Favorites bar Map} only then in the browser Tab ________________________ Screenshot: of both versions to compare the current Tab management. {Please note all tabs {without logo} in both windows are "New tabs"}

  23. Just installed v2100 and find that this bug is not fixed. These are the actions I take: 1. Copy(Ctrl + C) Maxthon.exe in install folder 2. Right click and Paste shortcut onto desktop 3. Enter in desktop shortcut properties 6 in the Shortcut Key Field 4. Use Alt Gr + 6 to open Maxthon successfully 5. The shortcut then shows as removed in shortcut properties but is remembered by Windows until I reboot when it no longer works. Hope it can be fixed soon, in the meantime my workaround, see above, does the job.

  24. I think you are checking wrong, the option works properly, when you select the option, there is an "x" sign on each open tab, i.e. the button to close the tab. If the option is disabled then the sign "x" to close the tab appears when you hover the mouse over the tab.

  25. Hey I know what Maxthon 6 really needs...they need a custumize user agent string option and a brand new set of thing that says "which setting of Maxthon 6 do you prefer,Maxthon 6 settings or Maxthon 5 settings".With these types of settings,we'll be able to change the user agent.Also,the Maxthon 6 setting,needs a little tiny bit of fixing.As for the Maxthon 5 setting at Maxthon 6,it needs the classic Maxthon 5 features now including your themes uploaded from your computer as well.Resource Sniff needs to have a red dot and then it disappears just like Maxthon 5 did.The setting also needs a side bar just to make it feel more like Maxthon 5 even without any updates at all.My final thing....please please please please make Maxthon 5.3.2200 as well as the new Maxthon 6 beta with the two setting options so that way users can choose whenever they wanted to have either the Maxthon 6 setting option or the Maxthon 5 setting option.

  27. Now MX6 is totally usable for me, and I appreciate very much that our suggestions are implemented so quickly; it's very pleasant to feel this kind of responsiveness from the developer. There is one other thing that I am missing from MX5: when typing a search query in the address bar, in MX5 you get suggestions based on your personal history and most popular search queries (I think), while in MX6 only from personal history. Can we get the most popular search queries suggestions in MX6?

  33. wit quick save you cant give name to a file ? So if I cant import my bookmarks (years of work) that means I cant use maxnote as bookmark manager. Hope you will return old maxnote. With maxnote more possibilities to organize bookmarks. Sometimes u need to pin bookmarks on sidebar. Most missed tool - trash for deleted bookmarks thx. good to know. as i said it happens randomly (so will be difficult to catch), but quite often in mx6. Never happened inmx5 thou. also in this case video will not be enough I think, because it will be hard to prove there was no double click. But I will pay more attention to this possible bug, and see if it is possible or bug ))

  34. You could also add URL to Maxnote. Yes. Currently, no. This request will be forwarded to the product team. Sorry, it has been removed. Request reported. ? This known issue is still being analyzed. You could middle-click to open the page in background. You could try to use the Quick Save image function. Issue recorded. ? Currently, you could middle click on the bookmark to open page in background. I tired to test this issue but haven't reproduced. Could you provide me a video of it? Download link of the recording tool: https://www.bandicam.com/ Request reported. ?

  36. Hi brian67, thank you for your feedback. We are unable to give you a definite timeframe when all these features will be added as our development team are working on optimizing quite a few features and also working on the bugs found. But please be assured that we have took note of this and have already let our team know and this will definitely be optimized in the future versions.

  39. Just updated to the latest version (6.1.2.700(64-bit)0409) and I'm seeing a new bug: even though the "Create new tab:" setting is set to "To the right of current tab", it actually opens all the way to the right of all tabs.

  42. New release and still nothing. Just let us know, if you are going to add : ** status bar with zoom +- buttons on it ** and global mute, ** also "mute" on individual tabs If those features not expected in mx6, I dont see reason to waste my time with mx5 (later or sooner I should stop using outdated version 5) P.S. I found out Edge isn't bad at all

  44. Hi Everyone, We always believe Maxthon is made by all users, not just developers and we always believe we shall send thanks to the people who contribute to the community. Now, we have introduced a new forum feature to make a step forward in this direction. If you look at the post, you will find there is a new feature, "Give tips", on every post. When you click 'Give', you will have the chance to send a little reward to the owner of the post to show thanks to him/her. You can use Maxthon Vbox or other wallet to pay the tips. How to receive tips? Open Maxthon Vbox and create an identity. Goto 'Identity' tab and 'Copy address' 3. Go to your profile page on the forum and paste the address to "Payment Address" Q: What unit is the tip? A: The unit is VPoint which equals to 100 satoshi. 1 satoshi=0.00000001 BSV. The default value is 2, so it doesn't cost much, but a good way to show the thanks. Feel free to increase the amount ? The feature is pretty new, feel free to submit any problems you found. Cheers ~~ Jeff

  45. Another bug: when saving all tabs as bookmarks and opening the whole folder at once (with open all) they open in reverse order, which is a nuisance, as I use this to remember all the tabs through a restart (for example for update) and then I have to rearrange them every time.

  46. +1 to that, I would actually let only the Maxnote, since it is bookmarks+notes in one place. And the manager is actually more powerful and beautiful. See more here: +1

  49. "I created maxthon to please myself in the first place"... now you made me sad. With a single superficial sentence you wrote off all the years I've promoted maxthon left and right to a simple "I don't care about the users, all I care about is myself". You had chance here to say something that would bring the community together, instead you did this. You know, I've defended Maxthon when it didn't work properly in MX3, I've defended Maxthon when it cheated in html5 test and I've spent countless hours arguing with Niels Leenheer about whether it's fair to simply remove maxthon from all the test results, I've defended Maxthon all the way until now when it came to every tough decision, every misstep when there were Nitro tryouts and unfunctional mobile browser versions, I did it all because of loyality and belief that Maxthon was different because you guys cared. But I guess I was wrong. And to mention the embracing of new technology and new ideas. Maxthon didn't innovate or bring new technology in years unfortunately. It became stale and outdated, so if embracing innovation is your goal, you have unfortunately failed. I wish you good luck with pleasing yourself, because you have lost me.

  50. Sorry to say this @MaxthonJeff, but from what you've said in the video, it seems you are not trying to develop the best browser for people anymore, you are simply making this a playground for crypto schemes. I've spend 30522 hours using Maxthon (that's almost 3.5years of real time) over the past few years. Started using it since the era of MyIE2 actually. But in the past years the development cycle of MX has slowed down to almost a full stop. Simple bugs persist tens of version and most requested features and functionalities are ignored. There is no innovation, no interest in upping the security, compatibility or speed of the browser anymore and now, by introducing even more unneeded gadgets,tools, wallets and protocols to MX6 coupled with using "heavily customized core" you are again sinking into the depths of unamageable dependencies, that will only slow down the browser and annoy the users. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE maxthon. As i've said above, i've been loyal to maxthon for well over a decade now. But you are simply ignoring what people want from you and that is costing you your users that are migrating over to Vivaldi, Brave and other similar browsers that actually care about opinions of their users and let them shape the browsers. You are a visionary, nobody can take that from you. But perhaps you should think about your users in the first place and create a product they want to use. And then, only then, make the bloatware something that can be added by plugins and not as a main feature. That's my five cents to the topic.
