  1. Thanks, Oky, for opening ways to update the posts with linked files to download.  But there are some threads that did not get imported from the old SKI?NS forum.  I'm thinking of Dr. W.. Wang's Spartan Skin for one.  Can threads such as these still be imported to this section or any other section?


    If they can't be imported then the OP will need to create a new one here. Otherwise the old forum is still there for such things.

  2. Advanced cookie management using third party programs
    If you need to do more than clean cookies on one or two sites using the above method, then another option is to use a third party tool to help with this.
    Using Cookiespy
    Cookiespy is a small utility that supports Maxthon. Install and select Maxthon from the tabs on top. You may need to select it using the + button on the right top corner if you use the portable version. It will display cookies and allow you to search, then delete as required.
    Using a SQL database manager
    Thanks to the scripting nature that SQL DB uses you can quite easily selectively delete cookies using any SQL browser/manager program. I've tested with DB Browser for SQLite.
    This is a basic rundown of how to use it:
    Open the cookie file (\UserData\Users\guest\Cookies) - Make a backup first!
    In the Execute SQL tab enter the following query:
    SELECT * FROM cookies
    Then on the next line is where you will state the cookies you want to display/delete in the format:
    WHERE (host_key NOT LIKE '%facebook%') AND (host_key NOT LIKE '%google%')
    Press the play button to run the query. The SELECT command displays all the cookies that are not what you have designated in the above command.
    To delete cookies use the query:
    DELETE FROM Cookies
    WHERE (host_key NOT LIKE '%facebook%') AND (host_key NOT LIKE '%google%')
    Press the play button to run the query. This will delete ALL cookies that DO NOT have facebook or google in the cookie data.
    You can add as many as you like, they just need to be connected with AND:
    WHERE (host_key NOT LIKE '%facebook%') AND (host_key NOT LIKE '%google%') AND WHERE (host_key NOT LIKE '%microsoft%') AND (host_key NOT LIKE '%yahoo%')
    Also make sure all the symbols ('%%') are there otherwise you will get errors.
    You only need to use the DELETE query. I've mentioned the SELECT option so you can view the cookies that will be deleted in case there is some other ones that you didn't add to the list.
    I recommend creating a backup of your Cookies file before you do this in case something goes wrong. But they're only cookies - so it's not that bad.
    USE AT YOUR OWN RISK, i'm just providing the info that I came across and won't be responsible for anyone losing any data by using this method.

    Seeing as the browser natively writes and reads to a SQL database, i'd imagine it's relatively trivial for the developers to create a UI to make it accessible to the end user. But for whatever reason it hasn't been done yet.
    I'd guess that it could be added as an extension if there was a way that you could implement a SQL manager into the extension file somehow.
    Regardless this is an option for anyone that needs to remove multiple cookies and keep select ones from different sites.
    Enjoy :-)

  3. Sounds like there is an issue there. Doesn't make sense why it keeps on syncing from the cloud when the local data is current and updated.


    Just to be sure:

    You sign in

    data gets updated from the cloud

    you delete that data


    ... and it comes back??


    What happens if you delete it and do nothing.. wait a while to see if it auto syncs, close maxthon, restart?

  4. Maxthon has only a basic level of cookie management from the UI. Your options are delete all or nothing using the options provided.
    This can be accessed from:
     - the quicktools bar,
     - Main Menu > Clear Browsing Data, or 
     - CTRL-SHIFT-DEL keyboard shortcut.
    Select the Delete cookies option on the dialog that opens.
    Using Developer Tools
    Sometimes you may want or need to delete cookies for a particular site due to errors or otherwise and deleting all your cookies isn't the most ideal option.
    To work around this we have some options.
    Firstly Maxthon does allow you delete cookies for the current site by using the Developer Tools.
    FOR MX5 (5.1.x and later)
    - Open the Developer Tools (F12)
    - Go to the Application tab, click the Clear storage item.
    - Ensure at least the Cookies option is selected in the right pane.
    - Click the Clear site data button.
    - You can also right-click on the site address under Storage > Cookies and select Clear.
    FOR MX4.9 (and early MX5 versions)
    - Open the Developer Tools (F12)
    - Go to the Resources tab, then the cookies section.
    - Right-click on the address you would like to clear cookies from and select Clear.
    - You can also select individual cookies if required in the right pane.
    This should be your first option when requiring cookies to be deleted only from a particular site.
    Obviously it's not recommended for anyone who isn't comfortable playing around with things that aren't made directly available by the dev's through the UI.
    Use at your own risk etc.

    i think i am in some sort of program with Microsoft where i can download it - have to look where from as i have not bothered much

    For the installer from within windows:
    Or here to grab the iso files:
    Or as Larry said, Windows update if you already have a version installed.
    Build 10074 has just been released and apparently full of updates. Downloading now.

  6. You would have to ask the team that creates the extension. But per the link in post #3, Maxthon doesn't have the required API calls to allow it to function. So unless the Maxthon dev's decide to do something about it, it seems there's nothing the Ghostery team can do.

    if the Popup panel, I would like to have that option again. without installing extensions

    As A.S. said, it's only available on Flash videos, and because Youtube is moving away from flash to HTML5 your only option is to use an extension to force Flash to work.

    Either use the one linked above, or Youtube Centre, which offers more options for customising Youtube, including downloading videos.

    There was talk of implementing a popup feature for HTML5, but it's unknown if or when that might happen.

  8. hmmm, i'm almost the exact opposite. I leave my PC on 24/7, only gets turned off if i'm out of town. All other devices stay in standby. For the small amount of money it costs me I can't justify the inconvenience of having to turn things on manually and wait for them to boot up.

    One thing that I do though is turn off all lights when not in use. Although with the new low watt fluro bulbs even that is becoming less of an issue. Of course every little bit helps.

    are you sure first option (alwyas show icon in system tray) is checked in settings ?

    It's not that. If any of those options are checked MX doesn't show in the ALT-TAB list. It will only show if it's an active window.

    Do you have the MX icon pinned to the taskbar? Try unpin/re-pin. I've had some weird things happen where I can't pin the MX icon to the taskbar, but closing it and restarting allows it to work again....weird.

    Ahh, Yeah its a font issue. Any way to get this working with a different font? on a side note, the b ...

    Best option is to use the Stylish Extension. It will allow you to adjust the parts that you want and leave the icons alone (at least that's the theory).

    But if you want it as a global option for all websites, then it makes things much harder as there are many ways that they can code that.

    It a privacy concern when it make connection to other company without my permission.How to disable ...


    Do you know how many extra sites are connected to when doing almost anything else on the net? If you did you'd probably not be online. I don't think this is of a concern.

    The only thing I can offer is finding out what sites are connected to and block them using your firewall or similar. Or don't use Maxthon.

  12. Works fine here with ABP enabled. Mine looks the same as Chrome. It's a font issue as the icons aren't actually images.

    Seeing as the font is different in Maxthon on your version compared to Chrome, i'm guessing you've changed the default font in Settings > Advanced > Webpage display. Change that back to default and see if that fixes it.

    Or if you're using an extension like Stylish that is doing the same. Disable it and check again.
