Hi! I think this is the first time I post anything here. I've been using Maxthon since it was called MyIE (And I don't mean MyIE2, but the first one!) so... yeah, I'm a long, long, LONG time user (over 22 years). Chrome didn't even exist back then Not even IE with tabs existed! Tabbed navigation, aliases, gestures... It was awesome. I was in love with it! I recommended it to everyone. So much innovation! I don't even remember which year I discovered MyIE. Maybe it was in '99? '98? Good times, anyway! Awesome!
Today I tried updating to MX6 but my page aliases are gone (I had over 50) and my custom search engines are gone too (I had over 40) even my personalized gestures.
So, I have 2 computers. One at home, (I didn't touch that one yet) and one at work, which I use remotely and had MX4 for I don't browse much there. Today I tried upgrading to MX5 (then MX6 was the idea). After installing MX5 I opened it and left it running for over 4 hours to work updating the local data and stuff that it said it was working in background. After 4 hours, the favs and history still didn't appear so I closed MX5 and reopened it. It had created a new local user profile without anything except some synced data (MX4 was at C:\Program Files\Maxthon and MX5 decided it was good to install itself in C:\Program Files\Maxthon\Maxthon5). I uninstalled MX5 and reinstalled again OVER MX4 folder. My "good" profile still didn't appear and this time I didn't get the message that the local data was being updated or anything cause it just loaded the new profile. So I tried to uninstall MX5 again and ticked the option to delete all the user data (it must delete ONLY the MX5 data, right? Wrong. It kinda deleted everything named Maxthon on my hard disk, more or less ).
Since I was effed up I installed MX6 and logged in. I'm using it now to cry type this. Of course, everything is gone there except passwords and bookmarks... It feels like an empty shell of what my fully customized browser was. This is sad (I'm kinda writing this jokingly, so don't take this post the hard way, but I'm also upset, still hoping this can be fixed! ).
I still have my personal computer back at home intact with MX5 and all my beautiful personal configuration which used to sync/port beautifully when I installed MX5 back in the day (well, not quite, but I was able to work it out back then). I didn't upgrade to MX6 yet because "Blockchain. Why do I need that?" But Google accounts don't work anymore in MX5 so I'm using Chrome... Also MX5 did away with some features I liked in MX4 and I didn't want that again into MX6 so I kept MX5. Today I wanted to just use one browser.
How can I export or get my aliases and search engines from my home MX5 into MX6 correctly? Can I port that to my Work PC? I'm an IT professional so feel free to get technical
If this can't be done or has to be done manually one by one (I could, but) I'll sadly go to Chrome forever, find some extensions to do the aliases and searches, I already have extensions for the mouse gestures and the tabs behavior, so it can be worked out. At least it really syncs stuff when I sign in. It will be sad to leave but also Chrome works on Android while Maxthon.apk is too reduced to even be considered a browser, so the passwords saved on one and not the other and the page's incompatibilities are getting the better of me.
I hope someone knows how to save the MX5 local profile data into the new version!
