Release Note6

Everything posted by MichaelC362

  1. Had it hundreds of times, on multiple computers, running different releases of Windows (8.1, 10, 11), ever since Maxthon v6 released, with various different extensions. Might be a factor that I download a LOT of programs for a large software library, generally 30+ per day... Shouldn't matter, obviously, but maybe most people aren't downloading as much, so not getting the caching issues!?
  2. Hello! This version, like most since v6 released, is still getting duplicates in the download manager, which aren't removed when clearing the list, still confirming a caching issue. Tried on multiple computers over the last few years & no commonalities as different hardware, Windows versions & extensions.
  3. Hello! It doesn't do it every day, but has done it since Maxthon v6 was first released & continues into v7. The extensions I have now are different to those I had before, so I don't think they're the cause. It's also done this on multiple computers, running Windows 8.1, 10 & 11, so although I agree, cache is clearly the cause, manually clearing it can not be the solution as that doesn't fix anything, just maybe temporarily halt it. When duplicates are listed, clearing the download list leaves all the duplicates, but exiting Maxthon & restarting then doesn't show them. This is clearly a caching logic issue that I've been reporting for the last few years. Most days, I download updates to a large software suite, sometimes 30-40 per day... I can't say that I recall seeing the issue when there were only a few updates per day.
  4. Hello! Getting duplicate entries in Download Manager again:
  5. Hello! Had issue with DuckDuckGo not searching, so checked search engine settings in Maxthon... Most engines were missing, so restored defaults & then had 2x DuckDuckGo... Removed one of them, but then couldn't select DuckDuckGo as now missing from options!
  6. Hello! Do you bother to fix major (& minor) security issues in the various plugins? For example, the high-risk V8 vulnerability, CVE-2024-4947?
  7. Changed the UA (to current everything) & then worked ok for me
  8. Since Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge & Opera are all Chromium based, the same as Maxthon, I suspect Magdalene may be right &, potentially, we're just waiting on a core update, which, we're assured, 'they're working on it'... if only that hadn't been the case for nearly 18 months, I'd be more inclined to believe it! 🤔
  9. Hello! When I goto: mx://components it shows: Widevine Content Decryption Module - Version: 0.0.0.0 & when I click 'Check for update' it downloads & then says Version: 4.10.2710.0. If I goto: https://bitmovin.com/demos/drm it shows I have Widevine support & plays back at 1920x1080. When I goto Amazon Prime, it plays back fine, but says: I tried changing the UA to latest everything, but still get the same... My obvious question here is, Widevine would now appear to be included, but with restrictions... do you know what the restrictions are & why & is there a way to overcome them!?
  10. Hello! In the extensions menu, the bottom line ("Open Maxthon W...") doesn't fit in the column & since that's not re-sizable, maybe spread the text onto 2 lines or make the column wider or sizeable?
  11. For me, 9200 is working fine, so could be extension issue... I have: Improve YouTube, Adblock for Youtube, Cookie Backup and Restore, CyberGhost Cookie Cleaner, DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials, Google Translate, Bitdefender TrafficLight & uBlock Origin
  12. Hello! After manually installing (previous said was up-to-date), noticed the update counter has reset (possibly 4 releases ago, but didn't notice until now!).
  13. Hello! Didn't auto-update & previous version said was already up-to-date. Manually installed, but after completing, Maxthon didn't start back up. Manually loaded & briefly showed new features in Chinese, before changing to English. This is the first 'stable' release in 3 months(!) & we're still stuck on Chromium 109... Since this is just for Windows 7/8/8.1 users, why not change the development of Maxthon to use a forked (latest) Chromium core, but modify it to remain compatible with older OSs (like Supermium)? That way all users will be served & happy! The lack of compatibility & HUGE numbers of security issues that aren't getting fixed isn't worth killing Maxthon for, but that's what will happen if you continue on this doomed path!
  14. It won't happen until they're forced to do it & since that's unlikely, not hopeful anytime soon! As soon as a 'popular' or 'must have' service needs newer than 109 core, that'll be the last straw for most users, which is a shame as I've personally used & recommended Maxthon for over 20 years & have installed it on thousands of computers over that time. As a matter of interest, does anyone know what cores they're using for Android, macOS & iOS versions? Hello! Version 7.1.8.8201 also showing 2 optional Bright VPN prompts after installation: Is one free & one paid!? I'm guessing the 2nd one should say "Bright VPN" & not "Bright VP"!?
  15. Hello! After (manual) installation, I got this: Should it be prompting twice for Bright VPN!? Also, when Maxthon restarted, it did so minimized to taskbar (by the clock) & when double clicking that icon, I wasn't signed in & had to select my account to continue.
  16. That seems HIGHLY unlikely... it would effectively amount to a complete rewrite every time there was a core update (obviously, as Maxthon only update the core every few years, that may not seem so bad to them! 🤐). If, (I doubt!) as you have said before, the development team are 'working on the core update' that must mean they started, again & again, every time a new core came out, but rather than complete the work, they just abandoned it when the next core was released. This simply can't be true! 😕 Do you have telemetry data for Windows versions in use & if so, what's the percentages for 7 & 8? Since (as mentioned previously), someone else has a forked version of Chromium that even works on XP, but still has the feature set & security of current Chromium, if you're so fussed about losing Windows 7 & 8 users, why not do the same for Maxthon!?
  17. Maxthon is the default (no others installed (except awful Edge)), but the installation had completely finished & I'd already given administrative permission during the installation. But, as you say, it could have been taking over file/protocol settings, which really, it should have prompted or at least alerted me to, during the installation!
  18. Hello! Ok, but why did I get a access permission request AFTER Maxthon had apparently finished installing?
  19. Hello! Didn't auto-update or alert me to the update, but after manually installing, when complete & I clicked the restart button, after a pause Windows prompted me for administration permission... Since installation was apparently complete, what was that for!? No surprises we're still on Chromium 109. In my previous post, I commented but didn't get a reply to: surely, from a developer point of view, the Chromium core is just a bunch of APIs, so to use a newer core, you just update the APIs!? It's not logical you'd start with Chromium browser source code & then make changes & add in all the Maxthon elements... Please confirm.
  20. 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
  21. 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)
  22. 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
  23. Hello! Version 6.1.2.2401 (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
  24. Mx6 6.1.1.1200 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)
