  1. Hi.

    I saw your post about the maxium tab width HERE. I'm running the later versions of MX5 but still have yet to figure out how to make the tab width wider. I would like to make it about a 1/4" or 3/8" wider. The setting was in skin3.ini but now I cannot find it. Any help you can provide will be greatful. Thanks so much.




  2. Thanks so much Tony. I know there's a minimum tab width of 16dip in main\tabbar\container.css but that's the minimum crunch-down width before they start running off the page and start scrolling. Other than that, I haven't noticed anything. EDIT: If anyone can add any additional info on how to increase the tab width, it will be greatly appreciated. In my opinion, the default tab width is not wide enough. Why make the default tab width so small when there are no or a couple of additional tabs on the tabbar? Waste of space. Most of the website names are so truncated on these tabs, it's hard to make them out.
  3. Thanks again for the help. I increased all numbers in @const TAB_MAX_WIDTH: 184dip;(contants.css) and both sets of maxTabWidth = 220,232 (skin.ini). As a matter of fact, I removed all of these lines from the .css and .ini and there's still no change in tab width. The tab width seems to be specified from somewhere else. In Firefox, I don't think that was me. I have tabs on top and then the nav bar with address bar below that and then I use the fav bar. Thx.
  4. Thanks for the reply. My constants.css in UIMain reads @const TAB_MAX_WIDTH: 184dip; and my tab is about 2.125 inches where it should be 1.92 inches but I'm trying to make it wider. (My firefox tabs are about 3" wide and start shrinking when I have more than 6 tabs across.) However, when I change the @const TAB_MAX_WIDTH: 184dip; to say 280dip the tab width is unaffected. Thank you. EDIT: The TAB_MAX_WIDTH is referenced 3 times in UIMain\main\tabbar\container.css and I also tried changing them each to 280dip from @TAB_MAX_WIDTH but still no effect.
  5. I'm pretty much done with my skin customization. The only thing I still cannot find is to increase the standard width of the tabs. When it's completed, I'll post my .dat files to the skin section.
  6. Thank you. I'm getting there. I just found, to change the tabbar color: UIMain\main\index.css background-color: #d1ddef;
  7. Yes. I stand corrected with the constants.css. I didn't have the default skin selected. After selecting the default blue maxthon skin, I can now change the colors. Thx. Still looking for a way to make the default tab size larger.
  8. Thank you so much. I thought I tried these and it had no effect. As a matter of fact, I think I removed the entire constants.css or some of it (can't remember because I tried so many things) and it had very little effect on the colors. I'll retry these however. Thanks. EDIT: If I remember correctly, changing @const TAB_ACTIVE_BG and @const TAB_BG in the mx4 user.dat did change the colors. I'll go back and mess around again this evening. Thx
  9. Thanks. It was easy to manipulate the mx3 and mx4 user.dat but now I'm lost. It doesn't help that I was away from maxthon for a while. I managed to adjust a few things like removing the 'x' from the active tab, spreading-out the items on the fav bar, and removing the black window border. I made the text and favicons on the inactive tabs full opacity, and enlarged the text on both the tabs and address bar. But changing the colors of the tabbar and active/inactive tabs and toolbar are a mystery as well as making the default tab wider.
  10. You can change the skin by clicking the t-shirt icon in the tab bar, but it only changes the overall color. I wish there was a way to change seperate elements of the browser. I've spent hours trying to get a dark (near black) tab bar with a near white active tab and tool bar with SLIGHTLY darker (from near white) inactive tabs. Nothing crazing. Simple but seems like an impossibility. Right now, with the default MX5 skin, there's hardly no visual separation in the inactive tabs and the text in the inactive tabs are way too light. Also, the tabs aren't wide enough in my opinion. They should be another .25" to .375" wider.
  11. BugSir005 replied at 2015-3-10 00:47 HI,jseeley, It's caused by ABP initialization. ABP launched slowly than browser, when initializati ... Sounds great! Thanks!
  12. I guess I was correct in the first place. When AdBlock Plus is not enabled, the double refreshing no longer occurs on your homepage. If ABP is enabled, your homepage will get the annoying double load. That is whether you have your homepage filtered or not. Also, websites that I filtered with AdHunter no longer work correctly with ABP with those same filters. This version seems to have a lot of bugs.
  13. I get a few popups like this with each clean install of MX. I'm running Win7pro and I looked for the folder that Imanerd described but can't find it. I'll look again when I get home from work. Thanks guys.
  14. I always perform a clean install and setup my preferences manually (as opposed to using previous appdata files). Thanks for the responses in that I'm not alone.
