  1. Hello! Version 6.1.2.2100 (64-bit) 0723 installed going to Version 6.1.2.2200 (64-bit) 0730 installed: 1. didn't auto update & reported up-to-date with old version when manually checking 2. still had 2 old versions running after installing, no prompts to restart, no messages or popups - nothing (1) + (2) have always been like that... never worked, often reported, but not fixed! 3. AFTER a download completes, download manager popup displayed in foreground, taking focus away from whatever program was running - this is quite annoying & happened in previous version too
  2. 1. still got bug in download manager where not able to delete all entries... however, is still the same caching issue as if exit & reload Mx6, list is empty. Hi MichaelC362, may I know how many download records did you delete? Varies, can be dozens, but still can get when only say 10. 2. new download manager issue where the download list pops up when not downloading or clicking the icon... when I just came to forum, it displayed! Could you provide us a video of this issue? I tried to test but haven't reproduced it. doesn't do it all the time, but does do it every day 4. quick launch really needs updating to either get website logos (favicon?) or be user selectable... e.g. Amazon + eBay only have logo for ".com", not any other country (e.g. ".co.uk"). An earlier Mx5 had user selectable from a choice per website, which I assume were created by Maxthon? You could click the edit button then customize the link. 😊 No you can't as that only gives screenshot or text... you can't select a logo from website (e.g. favicon) or a picture from either a Maxthon database or a local file, even though Mx6 sometimes has pictures for the USA version (e.g. amazon.com) 5. installing, while previous Mx6 running, still leaves 2 running copies of older version... no popup prompts, no automatic restart, nothing... going to: 'menu, help, about' does show 'restart' button, but that has to be manually browsed to Could we debug this issue remotely via TeamViewer or AnyDesk? Sorry, customer data on server, so no outside access. However, EVERY version of Mx6 beta (I've installed pretty much all of them) has done this. Wound be nice for option to have forum messages pushed to Mx6 (i.e. Mx6 simply checks if anything for currently logged in user account) - would save me having to goto forum every day to see if new version available (since auto-update doesn't work) & to check for replies to posted bugs.
  3. why does the number of posts in the forum, as shown below the username, NOT reflect the actual number of posts!? In a post early this week it says 64 & now today, it also says 64 ignore that... I see it is just the total, but is slow to update!
  4. Hello! Version 6.1.2.2100 (64-bit) 0723 (installed) 1. still got bug in download manager where not able to delete all entries... however, is still the same caching issue as if exit & reload Mx6, list is empty. 2. new download manager issue where the download list pops up when not downloading or clicking the icon... when I just came to forum, it displayed! 3. still getting quick launch refreshing everything when Mx6 loads 4. quick launch really needs updating to either get website logos (favicon?) or be user selectable... e.g. Amazon + eBay only have logo for ".com", not any other country (e.g. ".co.uk"). An earlier Mx5 had user selectable from a choice per website, which I assume were created by Maxthon? 5. installing, while previous Mx6 running, still leaves 2 running copies of older version... no popup prompts, no automatic restart, nothing... going to: 'menu, help, about' does show 'restart' button, but that has to be manually browsed to 6. auto-update has never worked, so exactly what is the tick box for & why bother to have option for beta upgrades if it's never been implemented!? Since a user can manually check for updates, so could Mx6 & since you're now basing on Chromium, a notoriously unsafe platform, keeping Mx6 up-to-date is critical! People who post in the forum will check for themselves, but users almost never both to check for or install updates for anything themselves - something we see by the large number of customers running programs that are years out-of-date & often now even a discontinued version. They only seem to do anything, which generally means bring to us to fix, when their software is so old it's no longer compatible with, for example their online banking, email, shopping, etc 7. 'ad-block plus' should, like it was in Mx5 (until, it appears, you accepted a bribe from Opera to remove it!) be built-in, configured & turn-on by default... Mx5 used to lead the way with security & in over 20 years of personal usage & after installing Maxthon on thousands of customer's computers, never once did we see a single copy infected (unlike Chrome, Edge, Firefox, IE + Safari where we see these infected on over 90% of computers)
  5. Hello! 1. Didn't get Bullguard detecting anything in any recent Mx6 & they've forgotten to include the publisher, so now even Windows complains! 2. In download popup, the display now needs to be scrolled for longer filenames to click on open file or folder... Really the popup should be a re-sizeable, pin-able window, but, at the very least, if the file/folder icons were at the left, one wouldn't need to scroll. 3. Background tabs still 100+x slower than foreground for opening... click background tab & as now foreground, instantly progresses, whereas leave it & takes minutes (got fibre, 80Mb, business (low contention) connection).
  6. Hello! 1. Version 6.1.2.1900 (64-bit) 0709 (installed) did NOT offer upgrade & said was up-to-date upon manually checking 2. Version 6.1.2.2100 (64-bit) 0723 (installed) caused Bullguard Internet Security to quarantine installer, reporting infection & Windows to say unknown publisher
  7. Hello! Version 6.1.2.1900 (64-bit) 0709 (installed) 1. When browsing, can be on any website, and scrolling down, a white box of varying sizes is displayed overtop whatever was on the page... stays there for a few seconds & then the website is displayed correctly. Seeing it every day, but not all the time. 2. Still getting message asking whether to exit browser or continue downloading when a download is in progress & try to shut the last open tab (which should drop back to Quick Launch). As Mx6 correctly doesn't close the browser when the last tab is closed, this is clearly a left-over from Chromium. 3. Background tabs are taking at least 100x longer to open than foreground tabs! If I need to open multiple links from the same page, I can be waiting many minutes before the pages open in the background, but only a few seconds if I click them, bringing them to the foreground. 4. Still getting no video or picture displayed on opened background tabs when clicking to bring to foreground. Refresh page & content is then displayed. But, on BBC's website, when clicking play icon in video preview, frequently finding a video goes through the motions of starting to play, but then just goes back to the preview & have to click again for playback to start. 5. Would be good if download list was displayed as a window, NOT a popup, so could be moved & resized & option to pin to keep visible & also displayed BEFORE destination popup to see previous downloads. 6. In address bar, when displaying, for example, matching history, instead of a small vertical highlight just on the left side, which is easy to miss, would be better if the whole line was highlighted. Issues 2 + 3 + 4 have been present for quite a few releases, but issue 1 is new.
  8. Hello! UK English. Mx6 has ALWAYS done this, since day 1... there has NEVER been a time when that message was displayed & I've previously installed every beta copy released. However, I don't really see how the system language could be a factor as, logically, it shouldn't matter or be in any way related!? Hello! 1. For me, 'Classic' theme has an orange title bar & no UI icon, so your video doesn't match what I'm seeing here. 2. For me, the download browse window isn't always displayed, so I assume that's file type specific? If I try to download your video here, it IS displayed & I DO see the 'Open' button, but for other items, it isn't!
  9. Hello! Re. missing 'Customize UI' icon... I had theme set to 'Classic' as 'Light' & 'Dark' don't look as nice, but in Classic, there's no UI icon... surely the icon should be displayed whatever theme is in use!? Are you going to have options for curved or rounded edges on the tabs? Square edge just looks a bit too basic. The download manager often, but not always, pops up after a download has started... it would be better for that to happen when a download is initiated so one can see what's already been downloaded, to prevent accidental downloading of the same item. Plus, it would be good to have an option for the window to be pinned, so it stays on top. I see the MUCH requested 'open', to download to temp folder & open a file has been removed... I assume that was a mistake & it'll be coming back in the next version!? It does seem that Mx6 development is going backwards, so it's actually getting worse with each new release... currently, despite releasing 'stable' in December last year, it's still nowhere near good enough to install onto customer's computers as all we'd be getting are complaints about things not working! Mx5 was excellent for over 5 years & easily the best browser (despite removing the built-in ad-blocker, which made no sense (unless Opera 'paid' you to do so?)).
  10. Hello! 1. Version 6.1.2.1801 (64-bit) 0703 (installed) did NOT offer upgrade & when manually checking still said it was up-to-date. Used the text displayed (.com), rather than the link below (.cn) for downloading, but: 2. When installing Version 6.1.2.1900 (64-bit) 0709 (installed), it didn't shut Version 6.1.2.1801 (64-bit) 0703 (installed) & after installing, I had 2 copies of Mx6, BOTH the previous version, until I exited both & reloaded. Been this way ALL the time with Mx6! 3. Still don't have 'customize UI' icon, so still can't change looks or enable status bar... Mx5 had options on the menu to add status bar. How can I get icon back?
  11. Hi MichaelC362, have you selected Close to the system tray? ------------------ I'm NOT closing Maxthon, just the last open tab, which should return me to the quick launch page. If I open a new blank tab (quick launch), then shut any other open tabs, when I click close tab on the quick launch, which is already displayed, it still reports download in progress prompt
  12. Hello! I see we've still got the bug where, when trying to close the last open tab, while a download is in progress, displays: Download is in progress Exit Maxthon anyway? Since I'm NOT exiting Mx6, just closing the last tab, this shouldn't be displayed
  13. Hello! Version 6.1.2.1801 (64-bit) 0703 (installed) Still getting items not removed from download manager when clicking 'clear all records'. I'll often have entries there for more than a day & EVERY week, for last few versions of Mx6, items are still left after clearing. As I've said before, it's clearly a caching issue as if I exit & reload Mx6, the list is indeed empty. I can't see where I can enable the status bar & I've also lost the 'customize UI' button (which is where I suspect the status bar option would be)... how can I get that back?
  14. Hello! Another issue with download manager: now, when a download fails & I click refresh icon, it adds a new download, which also fails
  15. 1. It's quite bad on even just a few, but awful when a dozen or more. I have Windows 8.1 Professional 64 bit (up-to-date), AMD 4.0GHz dual core CPU, 8GB dual channel RAM, SSD boot, so should (& was before) be better. 2. I have today, once again, seen duplicate entries in the download manager 3. a new download manager issue: when clicking the cross to delete a record, it's removing something from the list, as it moves up/down, just not the one I was clicking on! Still, I suspect, just a caching issue as when I restart Mx6, the list is ok. 4. Also, the auto-updates still didn't work, despite update beta being ticked 5. I notice, not always, but often, screen shot quick launch thumbnails refresh when I load Mx6, without me clicking anything... 6. delete all records in download manager again didn't delete all, but this time looks like it's the duplicates that are left (could have been the case previously too, but not sure)... this makes sense if caching issue as means the list HAS been emptied & is empty after restarting Mx6 7. Would be good if replies to posts here could be pushed to Maxthon so don't need to check in forum. Same user signed in, so not a lot of effort!

  17. I assume a similar issue with JavaScript is also related to AdBlock!? Refresh page & message goes away. Didn't get those problem with Mx5 though & had AdBlock running with 9 filters! I notice also, when opening multiple tabs, CPU usage remains high (60%+)... Mx5 wasn't that bad... Is that a limitation of Chromium?
  18. Hello! No, in Version 6.1.2.1700 (64-bit) 0625 (installed), you changed the taskbar icon back to dark blue (having previously changed it back to Mx5), but now with a light blue insert on the bottom right of Mx5 icon. This appears when pinned to the taskbar, but isn't updated if was already there & neither are the start menu shortcut or the system tray icon (when minimized).
  19. Hello! The start menu shortcut icon & the taskbar pinned icon are not updated to the dark Mx6 icon. When minimized, the system tray icon is still the old light blue (Mx5) icon. If going to Passkeeper website, when logging in says "Successfully" instead of "Success"
  20. Hello! Mx6 reports that Mx6 is Dangerous in the download manager!
  21. For reference, see the same with https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ (still showing Prime Day) & https://www.argos.co.uk (still showing Father's Day), so I expect would be for any website. I simply noticed it first on my website as I'd just changed it.
  22. Here's the thumbnail... this is how the website looked last week. Today, when I first loaded Mx6 I clicked refresh & a partial version of the current website was displayed (lots of bits missing, mostly the icons in the boxes), but refresh again & back to last week's version. 1623488537108 Hello! That's the first time I've seen duplicates in the list, but every week, there's items that aren't removed when I click clear. If it happens again, I'll make a video. However, this is obviously just a caching issue, the same as the thumbnail issues, so maybe the devs just need to check that.
  23. Hello! When I add the website to quick launch on a customer's computer, it always works, first time... Although, I've never tried to refresh it, so I shall do so next time. I've changed the website several times today & now, after loading Mx6, the first time I refresh, it shows the correct website, but even if I immediately click refresh, it shows a version from last week. Clearly this is a cache issue... is there an option to clear the quick launch cache? Hello! A new issue just seen with the download manager: Had duplicate entries for programs that were only downloaded once. Again, this is another caching issue... Exit & reload Mx6 & now no duplicates & clear history worked ok. I enclose the logs, created before reloading Mx6 Log Files.7z
  24. Hello! My website is: www.CornerStone.me.uk I've just tried it again & the first time I click refresh, it shows a partially loaded version of the current layout, but when clicking again, it shows last week's version.
  25. Hello! Retro/IE mode is not auto-filling in website login details (e.g. ebay.co.uk)... works ok in Ultra/Chromium mode
