  1. I'm with you Rick, I like the Mx4 Tas Over and Tabs Under buttons. I hope they're returned once they finish the work in UIHuge>main_solid. I've looked at it some and it doesn't seem complete yet. <<SL>>
  2. I like the two ideas above, not the "Nitro" one so much.. I hope your count reaches threshold when some of your skins are ready. Welcome back. BTW, pleasecheck your IM for an off-topic request. <<SL>>
  3. You can't now unless you make your own skin. The Skin Center has not been enabled. They have promised to bring skins back. In the meantime you might find some dark MX5 skins on the Chinese Forum. <<SL>>
  4. Thanks. It worked, but left me puzzled why the same addition in UIMain/main/skin.css did not work and still left the question where Main Menu was called. So did some further exploration and found several things: 1. The skin.css files were commented out in the css_list.css files in both UIMain.dat and UIHuge.dat. So they didn'load and so sisn't work. They do work when loaded. 2. I found that I was overlooking the fact that the toolbar flow is horizontal, left to right. Cosequently I didn't look far enough in UIMain/navbar/buttons_right.htm and missed where Main Menu is called from UIHuge.dat. Thanks agin for kick-starting more exploration. <<SL>>
  5. I have a problem doing a skin in MX5, The goal is to reproduce the Under skin pattern fr om MX4. This pattern has the navbar at the top of the window and the tabbar second row. I can easily move the tabbar in the layout sequence and remove the reserved space on the tabbar for the winControls (min/resyore, max, & closr). However I cannot establish reserved space on the navbar for the winControls. I have tried: .navbar { margin-right: 120dip; } and .navbar { padding-right: 120dip; } but they do nothing to the navbar The problem seems to be the Main Menu. I am trying to find where it is called to load. It's reference in UIMaun.dat's index.htm is commented out. I can't find any other call to load it, but it dues load and soes so following the loadinf of the winControls in the body of the UI. Where is the call for Main Menu?? I want to make it move to the left of the winControls along with the navbar right end. <<SL>>
  6. *.nxskin files are skin files (packaged file/folder hierarchies) which override the built-in ui design, Yes, they are the skin files which MX 3 & 4 (& 2 ???) supported. My "*.mx5skin" was just my recognition that it might be necessary to use a different extenbion for MX5 skin files. If not necessary, then don't do it. They will be distinguish in the description. BTW *.mxskin files aren't limited to user-designed skins. BTW: I also hope that when the skin Center is re-enabled that a function present in MX3 but lost in MX4 will return - the skin selecter SKIN_MENU and I asssume its companiob SKIN_LIST. Both of these are present in the MX5 Skin Center code and were also in the MX4 code. They are just hidden, I know there may be some background code needed to support thse functions, but do restore them. <<SL>>
  7. Why don't you try the Translate fubction built into MX5. It works well for me (well as well as a computer translator can be wxpected to work.) <<SL>>
  8. It is as simple as renaming the files, but I think you flipped the names: 0.dat > UIMain.dat and 1.dat > UIHuge/dat. But be aware that things are chabging so things may not continue to work in later versions. [@tony I know you know this, but all don't.] <<SL>>
  9. Please do NOT forget to add the HIDE SIDEBAR and SHOW SIDEBAR icons to the Sidebar and Statusbar respectively ) as in MX4. The right-click function was also available in MX4 and it's good to hear it's coming back. And now [off topic] please, please, please let us hear that support for loading *.mxskin (or *.mx5skin) files is being implemented. <<SL>>
  10. So you don't want your "just a web browser to log you into password protected sites? Passkeeper/MagicFill are just two names same function and they work perfectly for all but one web site where there is third-party validation that fails despite Passkeeper working correctly. Same problem in 4.9 but 4.5.7 works perfectly. I agree that Infobox/Maxnote is mostly misguided, counter-productive/counter-intuitive. Its only damaged, though somewhat useful feature is bookmarks. Restoration of Bookmarks Manager would make the bookmarks functionality complete. I agree that UUmail is useless for me. So much for critique of Infobox/Maxnote. <<SL>>
  11. Not any more. It now works for Flash andd HTML5. It can't handle Silverlight though. <<SL>>
  12. I am puzzled; whee is this found. I've looked but can't find anything like it. A hint, sledgehammer, or bulldoozer would be apppreciated. Thanks ... <<SL>>
  13. I don't think you're missing anything except what was not said, that the dev team would fix bugs found and confirmed during the release, suspending the release at times when needed for significant fixes. This makes sense to me, although it means a longer wait. Don't worry, there will be bugs oeft to find; there always are in any software. I am glad to see MaxthonJeff's post. It explains some of the delay. <<SL>>
  14. PortABLE OR STANDALONE AVAILABLE???? i hope so or I'll be waiting longer. <<SL>>
  15. It's the same as my Passport. I sent my pre-register EM address direct in PM. I registered roughly 3 to 4 am (New York time) 6/15/2016 and my number was approximately 3886 and VIP-3. Thanks for checking. <<SL>>
  16. @BugSir005: I registered early and got the success message from the pre-registrattion UI but not an email. Am I correct that my registrationn wass successful? BTW, I've had a Passport account for about 3 years and used its email login ID. <<SL>>
  17. I had no problem playing the video. But don't worry if you can't; it is mainly marketing; no real glimpses of MX5 are there that I can recognize. But it was nice marketing consistent with the the Pre-Registration UI theme. <<SL>>
  18. DITTO ... no email reply after the congratulatory message quotted above. what's up? <<<SL>>
  19. I just tested google Maps with Mx in Ultra mode. I do not find any problems. Pressed left mouse button and panned around; very smooth; no problems. Zoomed in with Satellite view (aka Earth view). No problems panning around. Went to specific address. No problems panning or zooming. So i short, cannot confirm with the last release. Did I miss something? Oh, yes, this is in Win7 x64. <<SL>>
  20. I've run into a problem on the Forum in the General Support and Bug Support boards under Bug Tracker. It is in several parts. 1. Mark as Read button within either board does not appearr to work. I click it; there is a screen refresh; but when I exit the board to the Forum level, the icon for that boar has not grayed out. I do check the board again for any unread threads, but find none. 2. The icons next to the board names do not work like the iccons next to the board names in all other parts of the Forum except But Tracker. In other sections clicking the icons is another way to Mark the board as read. Clcking does nothing. And last of all, I have a wuestion. I recall discovering on one of the boards a way to sort the threads, including Most Recent posting. This seemed to be the default setting, so that all recent newly posted threads would be displaed on the first page and if necessary continue onto the second. I have forgotten wheer I found it, and I very much want to use it in the Bug Tracker group of boards. Can someone tell me where/how to find this option or droptdown? SORRY, found the dropdown after posting. But it is missing a ""Most Recent Response" choice, so I'll have to make do with the ones given. PS: I'm using Mx <<SL>> R
  21. You mention that Cloud Push is one of the main reasons for using Maxxthon. So that brings up my question. After you did the uninstall and cleaning, did you try accessing the site with or without logging into Passport? The relevance is that loogging in and allowing things to sync could bring back possibly problematic user data, ruining your uninstall and cleaning. <<SL>>
  22. Not necessarily. On my Dell laptop, the two trakpad buttons pressed together can by seen as "dmiddle button" and at the same time, the touchpad's scroll regin can be used. It's a little less convenient than a mouse with a middle wheel with button, but it can work. Of course, the driver has to offere the options, so not all laptops may be equal. <<SL>>
  23. There is an error in the Chrome version in these new UA strings. There is an extra "0" before the final number. It should be Chrome/51.0.2704.84 . <<SL>>
  24. I have said: "youtube linnk" ==> bookmark it = https://www.youtube.com/user/Link" "images" ==> bookmark it = https://images.google.com || https://images.search.yahoo.com/ || etc. I'd never use them. Useless extensions just slow the browser down. Use <<SL>>few extensions as possible. I do find AdVlock Plus very valuable wen used with a good block list.
  25. Try the Skin,Center (bottom, left corner of the Main Menu) and select the defaullt skin or one of the other themes. Remember this skin is for the 4.4.x series of Maxthon. In that series any *.mxxskin file can be loaded by double click. <<SL>>
