  1. Just got same issue as last month... Downloading this month's Windows 7 update from https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/ During the download, Maxthon just exits... no error, no messages... Upon reload, no error, no messages & when I tried again, it worked ok. Downloaded 32bit 7 ok, but 64bit 7 update caused issue & then, after reload was ok & 32+64bit 8.1 ok
  2. A video won't give you any more information... it is as I've said
  3. Hello! Version (64-bit) 0910 (installed) Old problem with download manager resurfaced... duplicate entries & unable to remove duplicates when clearing list Seen many times in the past, but first time with recent versions Exit Maxthon & reload & list is empty, so, as ever, it's still a caching issue that's never been fixed
  4. already have this ticked, but it doesn't work
  5. Hello! Version (64-bit) 0910 (installed) 1. Started up ok after install (unlike previous 4 versions!), but the quick launch needed to be refreshed else only showed the defaults 2. In status bar, the local IP showed the internet address, but not the network address (just a thin, empty rectangle)... clicked & reselected the same & was then ok 3. When opening the download manager, it's still a popup, not a window, so if not pinned & switch to another window, one can't alt+tab back to it 4. Download manager window still not resizable 5. When downloading, the 'New Download Task' dialogue is displayed, but still not the download manager window, showing previous downloads 6. Download manager still not showing path, under filename, for current/previous records 7. Bookmarks still not scrolling when there's more than will fit on screen
  6. Windows 8.1 Professional, fully up-to-date Surely the status bar download speed is from the network connection, not just Maxthon!? If, for example, there was a Windows or software update running in the background, wouldn't that be included in that figure? Since Maxthon is displaying the individual download rates, better to just add them all up & display within the download manager.
  7. Hello! Version (64-bit) 0903 (installed) 1. Today, once again, the download manager was unable to clear all entries... left 4 from yesterday, although there were 20+ from yesterday & another 6 from today that it did clear. Upon exiting Mx6 & reloading, the list was empty, so had been cleared, which means it's still a caching issue, as it's always been. 2. The poor download manager is the main reason we can't yet restart installing Maxthon on customer's computers, it simply isn't good enough! It needs to be pin-able, so can remain displayed while clicking elsewhere. It needs to display the list when the browse dialogue opens, BEFORE selecting location, so one can see what's already been downloaded. It would be nice to show the folder path in the list. The horizontal scrolling is clearly a joke with the icons to the right - either move them to the left, make the box resizeable or, better still, rather than be a popup, a resizeable window, like Mx5 was, would be better. The download list needs to be sortable too. Plus, I'd like to see total download speed listed (the sum of the download rate of all current active downloads). 3. The quick Launch still doesn't show website logos (taken from the websites) & the pitiful list that are built-in are mostly limited to USA versions (e.g. amazon.com, but not amazon.co.uk)... Just look at how Opera web browser does this. When pre-setting up a selection of popular websites in the quick launch, it looks MUCH better to have company logos, rather than a screenshot or just partial name (just as much as fits) 4. Are there plans to implement DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH)? Opera & Edge have it already & the next versions of Chrome & Firefox say they'll have it too...
  8. Then they probably shouldn't have a setting that says it does...
  9. Hello! 1. As ever, previous version didn't upgrade & reported was up-to-date when manually checking 2. The last FOUR versions, after installing & clicking 'restart', the browser opens, the quick launch can't open, all plugins crash & the page is being rapidly refreshed, so can't get developer mode for you. Only option is to close Maxthon, then is ok after reopening... although, for this version, had to do that thrice as 2nd time, quick launch still wouldn't display, but plugins didn't crash... ok on the 3rd start up!
  10. It only occurs when installing a new version, so I'll change the startup before installing a new one when released & report. However, as all plugins crash & after exit Mx6 & reload, everything is ok, I don't really see the startup page, whatever it may be (quick launch, blank, webpage, etc), is a factor
  11. Hello! Here's the log files you asked for, re. after upgrading, quick launch + all plugins crash, page constantly refreshes, high CPU, have to exit... been the same for the last 3 versions! 615108932_LogFiles.7z
  12. Hello! 1. Version (64-bit) 0816 (installed), obviously didn't auto or manual update, which has never worked & still reported it was up-to-date 2. Once again (last 3 versions), after Mx6 starts, quick launch not displayed, all plugins crash, high CPU, browser constantly refreshing so can't get F12 developer mode to show whatever you wanted to see last time.
  13. 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
  14. Hello! Tried Version (64-bit) 0816 (installed), does exactly the same as previous: after install & clicking "Now" to restart... Can't display quick launch, plugins crash, can't click anything in Maxthon, just says "Not responding". Exit & reload & ok, same as previous version. Obviously, the auto-update didn't work, but since it's never worked, that's a given! Can I ask, what's does the "update" program actually do!? Since it doesn't do the updates, why is it included at all? Surely better to wait until it works before including it?
  15. Hello! 1. Version (64-bit) 0806 (installed) - didn't auto/manual update, as ever 2. Version (64-bit) 0813 (installed) - for first time ever, it prompted to restart... but then couldn't display the quick launch & just errors repeating down right hand side, using high CPU & page was flickering (implying constantly reloading). Exit & reload & ok after. 3. "+ Added the option to upload the new tab background image"... not seeing anything different in tab options 4. When checking the Mx6 version (Version (64-bit) 0813), it doesn't say whether or not it's beta (or stable)
  16. Hello! Version (64-bit) 0806 (installed) When opening a PDF from a website (i.e. NOT selecting a folder to download into, just clicking the 'Open' button), after displaying, the download manager popup is displayed, showing nothing... Really can't see any point in that! As I said before, the download manager (which should be a window, NOT a popup!) needs to display BEFORE initiating a download, so one can see previous downloads before selecting folder. However, if I then try to do exactly the same again, the next time the download manager popup doesn't display!
  17. Hello! Version (64-bit) 0806 (installed) A new one, not seen before: Looking to download last month's Windows updates: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=windows+2021+07+monthly Clicking the download button for each (7 32+64bit, 8.1 32+64bit), had some download ok, but most caused Maxthon to exit completely... no errors, no messages & upon reloading, still no messages about unexpected shutdown or anything! The downloads that were in progress, mostly wouldn't restart (no option to continue... is that Microsoft or Maxthon? Mx5 had resume download) & had to be downloaded again, where again, Mx6 just exited on most. Finally got the downloads to complete by just downloading one at a time, but never had this issue before.
  18. Hello! Version (64-bit) 0806 (installed) 1. obviously(!), previous version didn't auto/offer update & manual checking said it was already up-to-date - Mx6 has always done that - never fixed 2. yet again, installing new version left 2 copies of old version running until exited & re-loaded - always done & never fixed (NOTE: there's no point recording a video of this issue as it is as I say it is, so there's nothing to show, & always has been. I recently performed a full uninstall of both Mx5 + Mx6, using HiBit Uninstaller & still getting same issues upon fresh install of stable & later beta update 3. after exit & re-loading, didn't have my quick launch icons... had to click refresh page 4. when new version first loads, Bullguard firewall prompts to say Mx6 changed & whether to allow internet access... it also prompts for "updater", which I would assume is supposed to check for Mx6 updates... since this NEVER worked in Mx5 or Mx6, exactly what's the point of it!? For Mx5 it was a scheduled task, that ran/checked every 30 minutes, but still never worked
  19. Hello! Version (64-bit) 0723 installed going to Version (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
  20. 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.
  21. 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!
  22. Hello! Version (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)
  23. 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).
  24. Hello! 1. Version (64-bit) 0709 (installed) did NOT offer upgrade & said was up-to-date upon manually checking 2. Version (64-bit) 0723 (installed) caused Bullguard Internet Security to quarantine installer, reporting infection & Windows to say unknown publisher
  25. Hello! Version (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.
