  1. Hello!

    Again getting duplicate entries in the download manager list...

    Files downloaded yesterday, but not opened file/folder are today listed in amongst today's downloads.

    Again, this is still a caching issue as when clearing the list, the duplicates are left & can't be removed, but upon exit & reload of Maxthon, they are gone, confirming once again, cache issue (been present for MANY months & reported MANY times).

  2. Hello!

    When the download location popup is displayed, the file size is listed as 0.00B.

    When a folder has been selected, only then is the size correctly listed.

    When the download is started, the download list is displayed, but is empty (i.e. the current, and any previous, download isn't shown), but after a while, it then does display the correct list & shows progress.

  3. Hello!

    Scrolling bookmarks - at last - when placing cursor to the bottom right, it scrolls one line at a time... but when placing cursor to the right of the screen, nothing happens... it should scroll one column at a time.  If you have many hundreds of bookmarks, line by line is too slow/tedious.

    Could you provide me a video of this issue? I will forward it to the engineers for analysis. 

    Hello! Obviously, there's nothing to be learnt from a video as it'll only show what I've said, but, more importantly, it doesn't do it all the time, so I'm hardly going to create a new video every time I empty the list, just in case it does it!

    no zoom management

    You mean to manage the webpage list on Settings page?

    Yes, within settings, a list of ALL webpages where zoom was applied, so one can adjust or remove as desired (be nice to have a 'reset all' option too)...

    me too 
    Mx6 has a symbol top right corner

    That's just the 'beta' indicator, which isn't there in the stable version... previously, Mx6 was a darker blue

    no auto-update...

    Sorry, this function only can work when the engineers push the update.


    If I can download it, Maxthon should also be able to!

    It doesn't need to be pushed, Maxthon just needs to regularly check to see if an update is available, then prompt/download

  5. 9. Still no option to see stored page zoom levels to edit/remove... yes, I know they're kept per page, but we often see customers who've set lots of different websites to lots of different zoom levels & just want them all (sometime they need/want a few kept) reset back to 100%

  6. Hello!

    1. Obviously(!), auto/manual update check didn't work

    2. In settings, appearance, show status bar, unticking just CPU usage, also removes network speeds, ram usage + IP addresses

    3. I agree with others, Mx6 MUST have a different icon to Mx5 as MANY people still have both installed due to lacking features in Mx6

    4. Download manager still a popup, not a window, so can't alt+tab to it

    5. Bookmarks still don't scroll... the fact many people report & request this with EVERY release, maybe this should be a priority!?

    6. Chromium version far too old... new versions are mostly about security fixes, which Mx6 doesn't have, so can NEVER be considered a safe browser!

    7. Is DNS over HTTPS going to be implemented?  Opera + Edge already have it & Google + Mozilla say they're gonna have it too

    8. Quick launch company thumbnails still not present (available from the websites themselves (e.g. amazon.co.uk, disneyplus.com, bbc.co.uk, airbnb.co.uk))

    We're still not able to install Mx6 onto customer's computer's as the default browser, it's still not as good as Mx5, which we installed on 1000's of computers!

  7. 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

    Hi MichaelC362, fresh installation or overwrite installation? ... Overwrite

    Could you send a short video or screenshot of this issue to me? I tried to test this issue on my end but haven't reproduced it. 😥... will see if happens next time & then capture screen, but don't see how that helps as it was as I said!

    download settings.jpg

    already have this ticked, but it doesn't work

  9. 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

    Hi MichaelC362, are you using the Windows 7 system?

    The "Pin" function will be added to the next version. And the download window will support the resize function in the near future. You could enable the status bar then check the "Download speed" option.


    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.

  11. 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...

    Auto update has NEVER worked for beta releases, and never will. The only way to update MX6 betas is to come to the forum, see if there is a new version available, then download it and install it. 

    Then they probably shouldn't have a setting that says it does...

  13. 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!

    Hi MichaelC362, thank you for your help! The file has been forwarded to the dev team for analysis.

    Could you try to switch the startup page to another option then try this issue again?

    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

  15. 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.


  16. 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?
