Posts posted by MichaelC362

  1. 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%

  2. 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!

  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

    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

  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

    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.

  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...

    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...

  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!

    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

  11. 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.


  12. 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?


  13. 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)


  14. 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!

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. 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

  18. 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.
