  1. What again exactly is the problem with it being there? If you don't click it , you never know it's there.
  2. One thing that I am missing in MX6 betas is Maxthon Multi Search; do you know if this will be implemented later on? Also, I took note of this a while ago; my highly customized QA page developed in MX5 is completely gone, even when I go back to an MX5 version, and a generic default page has taken it's place (this may have been noted a long time ago but I am just posting it now for any new comers that are just trying out MX6). But since MX6 can now use Chrome extensions, it is not a problem for me as I had set up a version of Speed Dial 2 in Chrome and I can sync that page, complete with custo
  3. I, too, have installed 2600 right over 2500 and it appears to work alright. I think that since the installation goes to the AppData\local folder rather than to a Program files or Program files (x86) folder it may not make a difference if it is 32 bit or 64 bit. Just my guess but it seems to perform as designed.
  4. That message appears when one is attempting to open an app or program as an Administrator and I don't believe it has anything to do with if the browser is the default or not. But the option to disable if it has been set as the default is in the Windows settings under Apps> Default Apps.
  5. MX 5.3.8.x versions are still very much beta and are not finished products. If you want everything to work, continue to use 5.2.7.x versions. I also recommend only using portable versions of betas, especially the 5.3.8.x versions, so that one can keep their working stable version intact while testing the betas without affecting the data folder at Roaming\Maxthon5.
  6. Thanks for your quick response. Don't know what you did, but re-downloading the file and applying the extracted files solves this issue! Thank you very much.
  7. I'm starting a new post so as not to be lost if I edit a previous post. Wilser, I have found that applying your "Alpha Tab Bar below The Bookmarks Bar" skin to Mx 5.1.0.1400 causes my Maxthon Multisearch to display improperly. It displays the proper results but it is only in the right hand side of the results window and can not be moved via the lower scroll bar or stretched by dragging. Using a single search such as Google or Bing results in a properly displayed search result, filling the whole window. Hope this screenshot helps explain the issue. Not sure why this happens only when I apply yo
  8. Thanks for the updates AND for the detailed answer to my query showing all of the file changes in the new versions files. Above and beyond.
  9. After pasting in the new updated UA, uncheck the box to Use Customized User Agent and then check it again; the settings are saved message will appear at the top of the page
  10. Chiming in with something that occurred to me and I see that there has been some recent activity on this thread. I was curious if you, Wilser, or anybody else knows if the folder and files used in these skins (start;UIHuge.dat;UIMain.dat) have significantly changed in their original form in these 5.1 versions such that using one of your skins (I like to use the Alpha-Tab Bar below the Bookmarks Bar one) by replacing these files with your modified files and folder might remove a new feature or something that I won't see if I use your skins? I haven't dug into these files and folder to know just
  11. Just updated to skin version 1.0.1 with tabs below address bar. Works fine with new beta 1400. Though I have to admit, I haven't yet seen what you may have updated from 1.0.0 and 1.0.1. I did notice something I had not noticed before and that was that the External Tools icon is not appearing in the toolbar even though I have it checked and links added to it. So, I went back to the original UI.dat etc and checked to make sure that it wasn't your skin that caused that and it is missing even in the original, so I guess I should post that somewhere where it will be noticed. Your skin is not the c
  12. Thank you so much Wilser for also making a version with the tab bar below the Favorites and Address bar that I and Snow Leopard had requested. Works just fine with the new 1400 beta. Just to be clear and certain, these new skins are just cosmetic skins and I'm not missing some other changes to the menu or other modifications elsewhere that some earlier version skins that some others, maybe even you, had made earlier. I am not in need of any other changes/modifications but was just wondering as I do remember some other skins in earlier versions did modify other settings and menus. Good work and
  13. Wilser, thanks for replying. Right now, I am using a modified UIMain.dat that Tony, our other skins guy, made and posted to achieve the tab bar being below the address bar. I found that with this file mod, if I do turn on the Favorites bar, the tab bar appears between the Favorites bar and the address bar. It seems to work just fine for me right now. However, that is all it accomplishes (as that is all it was intended to accomplish) and it would be nice to be able to add it as an option (this mod is just for this with no option to turn it on or off as Tony intended) to any or all of your skins
  14. Welcome back. I "Liked" them so that the count will go up, but I won't be using any of them as the only skin change I would like is the tab bar able to be the bottom bar in the top group, below the address bar and the favorites bar (which I don't use anyway) and the last tool bar above the content window. I'm sure that when you get enough "likes" and go ahead with this project, that you will be able to incorporate something along those lines down the road. Good work nonetheless. Thanks.
