  1. No, not frequently, sorry. Something similar with a couple of download tasks not being able to be removed - but again, I can't work out any pattern to reproduce it on demand. I suspect it's an issue with running quite a number of tasks at the same time.
  2. I'm seeing very strange duplication of jobs listed in Download Manager. They're only downloading once each, but two here are showing twice. I note the bottom two have stopped progressing, with their duplicates at the top showing the download progress instead.
  3. Wonderful! Thank you SO much for setting Shift + Submit back to new tab rather than new window. HUGELY appreciated. 🙂
  4. Good point. I've not tried, but presumably so. It'd be much nicer to be able to name them properly at the point of download though. And easier to know what is what, as you're usually downloading from a page that has the video name on it. To end up with a load of proxy*.mp4 and having to sort through them again and check what needs what name is less ideal.
  5. Yep, I did both of those things and it still crashed! No worries. 🙂 Great! Fingers crossed...
  6. Handbags! Not just me though is it? I don't agree, this version is unusable (installed x64 v6.1.2.800 (64-bit) 0417). 🙂 See how it works? YMMV. There's really nothing to be gained from attacking people for reporting critical errors they come across.
  7. Yup, this is the worst release of Maxthon ever. I strongly suggest no one else tries it! As I almost always do, I installed over the top of 700 and it crashed almost immediately. And kept doing so every further time I started it. I then completely uninstalled, shut down my computer, restarted it, then installed afresh. All seemed fine for an hour or two. Then a new window opened (shift + enter to submit a form is still wrongly opening in a whole new window, rather than a new tab in the same window), and it crashed instantly. And then crashed within one second of being opened again.
  8. Downloading media files through Resource Sniff prompts to select the folder to save to (great!), but not the file name to save as. I'm not sure if this is a bug or as-designed, but it's not helpful! I'm currently trying to download some videos that are stored in AWS and come through a proxy service from the host website, resulting in all being saved as proxy.mp4. This means I can't run multiple downloads at the same time without putting them in different folders, which is a real pain. If it could prompt the user for the file name to save the file(s) as, especially when downloading o
  9. Oh, that's odd. Their system has changed and I'm getting the same behaviour in Chrome and Edge. It's a bug at their end. Both currency fields should indeed be changeable, as illustrated in your video, but the amount field ('1') should also be editable so the user can convert between specific amounts. It's a bug, but it's not Maxthon's fault!
  10. Not much to show in a video. Here's how it renders. The field with '1' in is not focusable.
  11. Running the latest beta,, I've started noticing a couple of odd occasions where I can't, or it is not easy to, focus/activate a form input field. The most obvious of this is on XE's currency converter, where the whole form is out of line and I cannot focus the amount field in order to change it from the default 1. https://xe.com/ucc/ I've had something similar, although it's not occurring right now, strangely, on https://weather.com/, where the search field in the centre of the top bar was similarly not responding to my clicking on it and trying to give it focus
  12. As people have been discussing downloading, I'd really welcome being able to simply open a downloading file (i.e. M6 quietly saving it to %Temp% then deleting it) rather than being forced to explicitly save it somewhere.
  13. Hi BugSir, Your video shows what SHOULDN'T happen. If you are typing in a text field like Google's search bar, then Ctrl + Arrow should at that point, whilst the form field is active and has focus, skip over each word. It should NOT switch between tabs. Switching between tabs should happen at all other times, when there is no active text input field being used.
  14. BugSir, this is the same issue I previously highlighted, re setting Ctrl + Arrow to switch between tabs. I believe I sent some videos of the problem in another thread.
  15. I've just noticed I'm getting search results (still/again) from the address bar in google.com.hk despite not having .com.hk set up as a search engine at all. It must be baked into the browser at a deeper level. Please do fix this as soon as possible.
  16. Yeah, the search engines functionality has gone massively wrong. Deleted ones keep reappearing; some don't delete at all; duplicates; it won't retain the default; etc. In the end I've managed a forced workaround by changing the values of the default engine record (google.com.hk) rather than setting a new record to default, and by just pressing delete on everything in random orders, and by editing values to remove duplicates, until they've almost all gone. One remains that I can't delete.
  17. Oh! Thanks. Without it appearing my default, nor an option in that panel on hover, I had missed it entirely. Lovely. 🙂
  18. Is there any estimate on when the Resource Sniffer functionality will return, or a recommended browser extension if it's not going to? The ability to easily download embedded video files in particular is very useful and keeps me returning to M5.
  19. It's an incredibly useful function. Navigate to mx://options/ and open the Advanced tab. Under the Navigation heading you should tick the Enable URL alias checkbox, then click to Manage URL aliases. You can then set up shortcut keys and alias keywords to go straight to specific URLs of your choosing.
  20. Agreed! The F-key shortcuts are the real key feature for me, which I've never been able to properly, reliably recreate in any other browser.
  21. Thanks for sharing this method. Somehow I'd missed that set of options. After selecting them it's solved the problem for me: Maxthon is the default browser again, and remains so after restart, shut down, and even a further Windows update today. Hopefully the issue does not reoccur.
