  1. Hello!

    1. Version 6.1.2.2300 (64-bit) 0806 (installed) - didn't auto/manual update, as ever

    2. Version 6.1.2.2400 (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 6.1.2.2400 (64-bit) 0813), it doesn't say whether or not it's beta (or stable)

  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. 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)

  4. 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).

  5. 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)

  6. When I say there's no indicator for zoom % with +/- on screen, I mean ON SCREEN, not just on the menu. Mx5 had a status bar which showed current zoom & had visible controls.

    The Ctrl + left/right, ONLY goes between tabs & not words when focus is on a field... this is VERY annoying!

    A screenshot of a dark background isn't going to help as the darkness will vary between monitors... on mine, I use the sun rise/set picture & the text at the top right isn't visible... If it was inverted to white, it would be readable. This needs to be dynamic, based on the picture darkness in that area (perhaps just XOR).

  7. 1. After downloading a file, if that file is renamed or deleted outside of Maxthon, then the 'open folder' link in download manager doesn't work. As the folder itself still exists, it should still open

    2. After downloading a file, if that file is renamed or deleted outside of Maxthon, then there is no option to restart the download.  Can click the URL link, but then have to browse to/select destination folder again

    3. If a download is paused, clicking 'Clear all' removes the paused download as well as the completed ones from the list

    4. If website viewed at 100%, no indication ON SCREEN how to zoom in/out - only shows if not 100% & even then only shows a magnifying glass icon, doesn't show the zoom +/-%. can't just be on the menu - not user friendly

    5. Download manager doesn't have resume (e.g. after internet disruption) or restart- the screenshot they showed me doesn't exist in current stable or last beta

    6. While running a beta version, auto-update NEEDS to actually work for ALL new versions, not just those you think are important.  This is also true when running stable, but with the added option of updating to beta too. If there's a new version available, then that means you've fixed, improved or added something so in some way, it's better than the previous version... obviously, people are going to want the better version, especially while Mx6 still has many unresolved issues

    7. nsandi.com - auto-fill doesn't remember the NS&I number, only the Surname + Password

    8. While reporting bugs in 'Submit Feedback', would be good to be able to access previous posts & replies

    9. No quick or easy access to User Agent, like in Mx5

    10. Still getting black on dark background picture on quick launch page, so text unreadable as almost invisible

  8. Just tried latest Mx6.1.1.1000 & still missing LOTS from Mx5 & still getting compatibility issues:

    1. download file size not displayed before download has already started... need to know size to know where to store

    2. quick launch thumbnails... still missing... could also offer to use website favicon image

    3. download auto-rename... doesn't work at all unless folder has already been parsed. also, auto-renames if download name exists in parsed folder, even if about to browse to another where it doesn't exist. MUST parse folder BEFORE checking

    4. minimize to system tray missing

    5. not compatible with hotmail/outlook email...
    after (seems random) few seconds, the page refreshes back to inbox, losing anything typed in a new message

    6. Ctrl + left/right should, when focus is on a field, move between words, NOT tabs, unless focus is on page

    7. download manager doesn't have resume or restart

    8. help/about Maxthon link goes to already open about page - should be maxthon.com

    9. no status bar showing IP, RAM, CPU, zoom

    10. if website viewed at 100%, no indication how to zoom in/out (only shows if not 100%)

    I've used the built-in send feedback MANY times over the last month, reporting MANY bugs & issues, but had ZERO replies, hence now posting here instead!
