  1. This is not a skin, but rather just a Maxthon MX5 background image that I put together for use on the Quick Access page. This particular one is sized to 1440 x 900px. Hopefully the text clears the Quick Access tiles on a 1440 x 900px monitor. I couldn't test it for that since my monitor is a 1280 x 1024px monitor. The one that I'm using on my monitor is laid out slightly differently. You can also use the same image as the Theme Skin for a Dark Blue area in the upper area of the GUI. (Tab Bar, Favorites Bar, Etc.) Enjoy.
  2. Okay, I did some resampling, recropping and came up with 1440px Wide versions of both of the images from above. I saved them at a slightly lower JPEG Quality Level so that they wouldn't be too heavy of a file size. ENJOY! @ the OP If you need more detailed steps on how to actually install the images in your browser, let us know whether you're using Maxthon 4 or MX5 and we'll help you out with the steps. I wasn't sure whether you just needed access to the images or need more detailed help with the actual steps.
  3. Unfortunately that's not a design (Skin) that comes with Maxthon. For that LOOK, I used a custom image from my stash of background images. Just for demonstration purposes, I have attached a downsized version of the image that I used. (CGI Sea) And I also attached a downsized version of the custom image that I used for the Quick Access Page background. (Blue Speed Dial) Together, the 2 background images create a certain LOOK. I did not attach the actual full-sized images for you to use because the file sizes would be what is probably considered too big to be attaching in these forum
  4. Thanks, BugMiss. Here's a bit of bonus info. After coming back from my sister's house with all my software apps updates ... after experimenting around with MX5, I did eventually perform yet another reinstall of And this time around --- neither logging into my Google account nor bringing up my BlogSpot Blog nor attempting a Major Geeks download jump started Adblock Plus. So that proved that 7twenty was correct regarding saying that that last time that Adblock Plus suddenly started working again around that time frame of when I logged onto Google and brought up my BlogSpot Blog a
  5. Thanks for the explanation, 7twenty. I guess we'll consider the issue closed ... unless the Devs can come up with something.
  6. Can you explain what the EasyList is, what it's for ... how it works? It has me perplexed as to just exactly how those weird choices in there would serve me here in the USA. I mean, you have choices in there about China, Czech, Dutch, Germany, Hebrew, Italy and what not. I don't believe I see one in there for USA. Anyway, I guess it's possible the culprit in these periodic failures of my Adblock Plus could be my Dial Up. Some websites / services on the Net are not as Dial Up friendly. For example, at one time, for several months I was having problems downloading the MBAM Definitions,
  7. As far as to whether I engaged in the filter subscriptions suggestion that you mentioned? I did go into that area, but with the 3 tabs and all the various info and settings there, I got confused and leery as to just exactly to what you were referring. I did mess around with various things there though ... to no avail. Let's see ... (1) I disabled and re-enabled the Enable Adblock Plus setting. (2) I tried 3 times to update the EasyList with the Update button. I always eventually got a Download Failure Error. (3) I unchecked and even X-ed out the EasyList. (4) I
  8. Which OS and anti-virus do you have, No.1MaxthonFan? You probably have an OS much newer than what I have. I have Windows XP SP3 Pro. Maybe it's a Windows XP glitch. Maybe the issue is more likely to manifest itself on Windows XP and not on other newer versions of Windows, Linux or Mac. And I use avast anti-virus. I have no idea whether an anti-virus could remotely affect something like this.
  9. I just had a thought. By any chance, does Adblock Plus NEED Google? In other words, do we need to be logged in into Google in order for Adblock Plus to work. Because it just occurred to me that all that time that Adblock Plus was not working, I was not yet logged into my Google account what with having had just freshly reinstalled Maxthon all those times. So then once I brought up my Blog, I logged in, which it being BlogSpot, that means logging into my Google account. And like I said, after that, interestingly enough, Adblock Plus started to work again during the SAS Definitions down
  10. Whoa! Wait a minute. What the ..... ? Heyyy! YAY! Success! Adblock Plus is back working again! I guess it was a case of like Arnold Schwarzenegger said, "I'll be back." Seriously, it's really back. Now how did I get it back working again, y'all might ask? Well, it really wasn't anything that I knowingly, strategically, techie-like and logically tried. It was more like happenstance, I guess. The way I see it, it was one of 2 things that finally heimlich maneuvered the furball from Adblock Plus' throat. It was either me bringing up my Blog ... or me initiating a download of th
  11. Last night I performed yet another clean reinstall of Maxthon and STILL no signs of life from Adblock Plus. I would have figured that the odds would have been that with so far 1 install of and at least 2 installs of, possibly three ... by now ONE of them would have made Adblock Plus work. But, nope. No dice. Really odd. I even thought I had a great idea. I went and looked at the settings of my PortableApps.com, which is working. I figured maybe some Adblock Plus setting would be different and would be the key. But, nope. Everything was i
  12. Question / Wondering: Okay, as I understand it, Maxthon has Ultra (Blink) and Retro (Trident) mode. Right? And in right out of the box default state, it starts out in Ultra mode, right? And in its default state, Maxthon has the ability to automatically change to Retro mode when necessary, right? So could it be said that while almost assuredly Maxthon spends most of its time in Ultra mode ... theoretically it would also need the ActiveX version of Flash Player for the much lesser occasions when it is in Retro mode? Or not really? Is Maxthon perfectly fine with just the PPAPI versio
  13. Hmmm ... perplexing. I now reverted my computer to the System Restore Point right before I originally installed when everything was working fine. And I also reinstalled ... and Adblock Plus is still not working period despite the setting being ON. Is the ad blocking supposed to happen on the Users' end or over on some Maxthon Server somewhere?
  14. Right now the Adblock Plus is pretty much not working PERIOD on ANY website. Okay, I have attached 2 images of the MajorGeeks website. One is with the currently failing's Adblock Plus. On that one you can see the ads that would normally be blocked AND the missing Blocked Ads Count at the bottom at the little Stop Sign icon. Then the other image is of the same Major Geeks website, this time brought up with my PortableApps.com Maxthon Cloud On that one you can see the ads HAVE been blocked AND you can see the Blocked Ads Count at the bottom at the little Stop Sign
  15. YAY! Success! It worked! Actually, even better than I thought. As I mentioned in my previous comment, I thought it was only going to update the internal Flash Player version of Maxthon, but not be available for use by my Opera Browser. However, I checked with Revo Uninstaller and the Flash Player 23 PPAPI version does now show up as flat out installed. Awesome! It certainly worked wayyyyy better than trying to go the exclusive straight to Adobe route. I HATE dealing with any Adobe website. They're always excruciatingly ssssslow. Thanks again, 7twenty!
