  1. I think I have managed to open too many tabs and corrupt Maxthon, to the point it won't start. I was browsing fairly normally but had many more tabs open than usual. Suddenly Maxthon crashed out and closed. It now refuses to open, crashing out again every time I try to launch the browser. I've tried to reinstall over it in hope of a fix, but no luck. If I need to uninstall and reinstall clean, is there a way of getting the list of open tab URLs out first? Windows 11, x64, etc. --- Edit I just managed to gain access, discovering that I could open an Incognito Maxthon instance/window from right-clicking the pinned taskbar icon, and then once that was loaded, opening New > Window. It's now running again and boots as normal. Very odd behaviour in the meantime though.
  2. Thanks! All fixed now. However, I installed it with Maxthon still running, and told it to reboot the browser now. Maxthon closed, but didn't reopen. Tried to launch it again numerous times but nothing happened. Restarted Windows and tried to launch, and got an error that the side by side configuration was wrong and it couldn't run. So had to run the installer a second time, and then Maxthon opened successfully.
  3. Hopefully this is understandable. bandicam 2022-08-22 17-32-19-629.mp4
  4. I've got some stuck, phantom downloads that won't clear in, 900, and I think 800. I believe all three were files I opened directly rather than saved. Even restarting and downloading them afresh, then deleting again, has no effect.
  5. M6.2.0.505, Windows 10 x64. Since updating to the above version, I find every form submit brings up the 'Update password' prompt, even when there is no username, email address or password field existing on the page at all, never mind being included in the POST.
  6. I'm trying, but for some reason it never does it when Bandicam is running!
  7. I spoke too soon. Crashing again when any window is closed that results in just one window remaining open.
  8. So far it seems fine after a complete reinstall. Fingers crossed it stays that way.
  9. I'm experiencing constant crashes with 1800 and 1801. Having opened either a new regular window or an incognito window, when closed and returning to the single, main browser, it crashes. Of course when I launch M6 again it then has Maxthon Now with the reopen crashed closed tabs ... which opens in a new window. So I open that, then close the Maxthon Now window, and it crashes again! I had installed over the top of 1700; will now uninstall and try it fresh...
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Oh! Thanks. Without it appearing my default, nor an option in that panel on hover, I had missed it entirely. Lovely. ?
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. It appears in my list, but won't set. Then again, I just tried to set Chrome as the default and that doesn't seem to actually set, either.
