  1. Hello! That sounds good, but you've said much the same for the last year, so that implies you've been repeatedly working on the 'then' current version, not releasing it & starting all over again when the next version was released! Since EVERY other browser (at least all the ones I've heard of) include the latest core not long after release, even the 'little ones', surely Maxthon can/should do the same? You always say the 'development team' are working on it, but even if the 'team' consisted of just one person, in the 15 months since v109 was released, they've had plenty of time to incorporated a newer core! In the past, Maxthon was first to market with pretty much all major browser innovations & that's why you built up such a dedicated following, but leaving the core so far behind (I assume just to keep the few Windows 7 & 8 users happy), is losing users, who have no choice but to change to another browser, as Maxthon is too old to be safe or compatible now! Luckily, I'm not yet one of them as the websites I goto are, at least currently, still working, but for how much longer!?
  2. Hello! What's changed between & Obviously not Chromium 109 to something newer! I hope, when one fine day you actually do update the core, it will be to the current version at time. Today, 20 February 2024, v122 is released as stable, so 'hopefully', that's the one you've been working on!?
  3. Hello! Going into menu, Help, About is still including the features page, but not every time!
  4. Hello! On quick launch shortcuts, for "Color" (still spelt wrong for UK English, as reported multiple times over many years!), could you add yellow? Also, as I see Opera is now offering it, I'll ask again, could you also add browse for local image? For me, sync works fine, no issues, so possible firewall, anti-virus or extension issue for others?
  5. Hello! Getting duplicate entries in download manager again - not had this for a few versions, but been an on/off problem since v6 released & never fixed. It's clearly a caching issue, so should be a quick fix. Like many, I'd rather you release ZERO updates, add ZERO new features & fix ZERO bugs until you update Chromium &, after that, KEEP it up-to-date! Also, from what I see, Widevine support from Google doesn't appear to cost you anything, the fees seem to be for content generation, not playback. Not having Widevine really isn't acceptable due to the large number of streaming services that use it & are therefore inaccessible via Maxthon. In Amazon Prime, can only get standard (poor!) quality playback:
  6. Although spread out more, that's still basically the same changelog as the previous version!
  7. Hello! Maxthon just auto-updated to v7.1.8.6000 (64-bit) 0125 23:01 The changelog reported though is the same as v7.1.7.9200 beta... What's actually changed?
  8. Hello! Well that's odd as I've been using it for years to simultaneously log into 2 different email accounts (outlook & hotmail) & I never used incognito mode once as the option for a new session was already on the main menu & worked perfectly!
  9. Hello! "New Session Window: Added a New Session Window option to the main menu, allowing users to log in and use secondary accounts in a separate and isolated environment, enabling multiple accounts to be online at the same time for any websites." This option has been on the main menu since, I think, day 1! I've used it many times over the years, so why is it listed as a 'new feature'!? 1337x.to works ok for me - shows it's checking & then loads fine. However, when going to it via unblockit.date, I get a message saying it might be down - clearly an issue with unblockit, not 1337x. Not getting red dot update notification anymore for the last few versions & when checking, says up-to-date, when it isn't & not auto-updating anymore. Since this did work a few versions ago, I thought, after the HUGE number of complaints about this, you'd finally sorted things out, but I guess that was only a temporary fix!?
  10. Hello! This one was better for Windows 10 - no extra shortcuts created - will try Windows 11 tonight. v7.1.7.8600 reintroduced the duplicate entries in the download manager (unless I've just been lucky for the few versions before that didn't show any!?). When on a shared computer & going to a website that has login (e.g. www.amazon.co.uk), when I click into the email box, Maxthon offers accounts from a stored list (even if those accounts hadn't previously been used on this website!) - where is this list stored & how do I remove individual entries? For my own computer, this is a benefit, but for a 'works' or shared computer, it's a privacy issue! The last 2 releases ( &, on outlook.office.com (online email), when opening an email, the 'close' button icon isn't displayed, just a [x] (or have Microsoft themselves changed that!?): Investigation into the autofill entries shows highlighting an entry & pressing shift+delete does indeed remove it from suggestions for that website, but closing the website & going back then offers different autofill suggestions! Removing them too & exit & go back & no more listed... this would be better if there was a [x] next to each entry & better still if the list was shown in Maxthon settings somewhere, per website, with options to delete individual or all autofill entries per website.
  11. Hello! Maxthon v7.1.7.8400 didn't offer update & said it was up-to-date, on both Windows 10 & 11 computers. Installed v7.1.7.8600 on a Windows 11 computer & got the prompts for creating MaxNote shortcuts, so I could say no. Installed on a Windows 10 computer & didn't get the prompts. so both taskbar & desktop shortcuts needed to be manually deleted. When the changes box displayed, initially, it was in Chinese & then changed to English. Also, whilst installing, the displayed version didn't say it was beta:
  12. Hello! Installed update, but didn't prompt to create taskbar shortcut (like last couple of versions did) & created a duplicate (already existed), which was then auto-removed upon first run... that's what it was doing for quite a few versions, but when the prompt was added, I could say "no", but now that's gone again.
  13. Hello! Tried again this morning & exactly the same. When I right click Vbox & click settings, it just takes me into Maxthon's 'Advanced' settings page (although the address is spelt wrong: mx://settings/advance)... I don't see the options you're showing
  14. Hello! Doesn't seem to be option to start again, but first 2 times clicked Vbox this morning, just got error "3". Then it let me continue & once again, selecting 044 for UK doesn't display after selecting, but also, after entering phone number & clicking send, it doesn't send anything & just gets another server error: (I've deleted the phone number from the picture here)
  15. Hello! Text was in Chinese (despite specifying UK) Got multiple 'server internal error's & one error that just said "3"! When selecting 044 for country code, the code isn't shown after
  16. Hello! Version (64-bit) 0816 (installed) & previous version... After installing, doesn't display quick launch, all plugins crash, can't click anything in Maxthon, but after exit & reload, is ok. Here's the crashpad Crashpad.7z
  17. Mx6 beta The Ctrl + F1 snap now has Chinese characters in the description. Lloydsbank.com now can't sign-in (was ok with previous beta). national-lottery.co.uk still broken with just spinning life signs for some images on home page. The new download manager is still not good enough (i.e. not as good as Mx5)... why keep going backwards!? The window isn't even resizable & now instead of a downward facing arrow icon, there's now just a black circle. Good minimizer to tray finally added in, but still would benefit from status bar (like Mx5). Still no website thumbnails or selectable images (could use favicon, a Mx/web database or locally chosen)
  18. When I say there's no indicator for zoom % with +/- on screen, I mean ON SCREEN, not just on the menu. Mx5 had a status bar which showed current zoom & had visible controls. The Ctrl + left/right, ONLY goes between tabs & not words when focus is on a field... this is VERY annoying! A screenshot of a dark background isn't going to help as the darkness will vary between monitors... on mine, I use the sun rise/set picture & the text at the top right isn't visible... If it was inverted to white, it would be readable. This needs to be dynamic, based on the picture darkness in that area (perhaps just XOR).
  19. 1. After downloading a file, if that file is renamed or deleted outside of Maxthon, then the 'open folder' link in download manager doesn't work. As the folder itself still exists, it should still open 2. After downloading a file, if that file is renamed or deleted outside of Maxthon, then there is no option to restart the download. Can click the URL link, but then have to browse to/select destination folder again 3. If a download is paused, clicking 'Clear all' removes the paused download as well as the completed ones from the list 4. If website viewed at 100%, no indication ON SCREEN how to zoom in/out - only shows if not 100% & even then only shows a magnifying glass icon, doesn't show the zoom +/-%. can't just be on the menu - not user friendly 5. Download manager doesn't have resume (e.g. after internet disruption) or restart- the screenshot they showed me doesn't exist in current stable or last beta 6. While running a beta version, auto-update NEEDS to actually work for ALL new versions, not just those you think are important. This is also true when running stable, but with the added option of updating to beta too. If there's a new version available, then that means you've fixed, improved or added something so in some way, it's better than the previous version... obviously, people are going to want the better version, especially while Mx6 still has many unresolved issues 7. nsandi.com - auto-fill doesn't remember the NS&I number, only the Surname + Password 8. While reporting bugs in 'Submit Feedback', would be good to be able to access previous posts & replies 9. No quick or easy access to User Agent, like in Mx5 10. Still getting black on dark background picture on quick launch page, so text unreadable as almost invisible
  20. Just tried latest Mx6.1.1.1000 & still missing LOTS from Mx5 & still getting compatibility issues: 1. download file size not displayed before download has already started... need to know size to know where to store 2. quick launch thumbnails... still missing... could also offer to use website favicon image 3. download auto-rename... doesn't work at all unless folder has already been parsed. also, auto-renames if download name exists in parsed folder, even if about to browse to another where it doesn't exist. MUST parse folder BEFORE checking 4. minimize to system tray missing 5. not compatible with hotmail/outlook email... after (seems random) few seconds, the page refreshes back to inbox, losing anything typed in a new message 6. Ctrl + left/right should, when focus is on a field, move between words, NOT tabs, unless focus is on page 7. download manager doesn't have resume or restart 8. help/about Maxthon link goes to already open about page - should be maxthon.com 9. no status bar showing IP, RAM, CPU, zoom 10. if website viewed at 100%, no indication how to zoom in/out (only shows if not 100%) I've used the built-in send feedback MANY times over the last month, reporting MANY bugs & issues, but had ZERO replies, hence now posting here instead!
