  1. UFO106 replied at 2014-11-23 05:17 Good idea. I've done it, and it worked. So I've tried to disable some addons, and only GreaseMonke ... Great news. Although, I don't use GreaseMonkey and I have the same issue? Doesn't affect me at all, but would be interesting to find out why that is the case.
  2. Try updating to the most recent release and see if things are better. Also maybe try pushing 1 page, then 2, 3 etc. in case it's having issues with loading multiple pages for some reason.
  3. If you click on the icon you will go to the Proxy Settings page and if i'm not mistaken it will be set to use the IE proxy settings by default. So if you have those setup then that is what is being used, otherwise it will be a direct connection. I agree that it should probably be set to No Proxy by default, but it's probably like that because so if you do have a proxy setup for IE, then you probably want to use that as a default connection. If you don't then nothing happens and it doesn't make a difference.
  4. I would have thought something like this would have been added as a fix to the changelog... apparently not?
  5. Just tested the page mentioned in the first post. It looks like it's fixed. At least I don't get the break after the apostrophe on that page.
  6. UFO106 replied at 2014-11-21 19:26 How should I perform clean installation? I wish to at least have the passwords I've used, and also ... Test with the portable version. Download, extract to a test folder and run. If it works fine then you can deal with doing a "clean" install and selecting data to keep etc. If it still doesn't work then it's not related to your data, but something else within Maxthon.
  7. It's not a common error that is mentioned here? Does it happen at startup or after some time? Are you using a passport account, if so logout and see if it helps. Try running with Admin privileges and see if that works. Download the portable version of maxthon, just extract and run the maxthon.exe file in the Bin folder. See if the same error occurs. Otherwise a disk check in case the file has been corrupted somehow.
  8. Hmmmm, interesting. A couple of tests if you don't mind. Do these with Process Explorer or Resource Monitor running and keep an eye on the CPU, disk IO & ethernet graphs watching for any direct correlation between them. Download a program with Maxthon (eg. Maxthon installer). Download a program with IE or another browser. Copy a file on your HDD to another folder and/or drive. Copy a file on your HDD to a networked device (other computer/tablet etc) I'm thinking HDD/storage/Ethernet drivers are having an issue with something. Are you sure they're updated to the latest and not using some generic MS ones? Definitely no warnings/errors in device manager? Also have a look in the event logs (from windows search type in event, then select view event logs. Windows Logs > System). Look for any warnings/errors relating to disk/network/ethernet. I vaguely recall having a similar issue where my mouse would stutter horribly when downloading stuff. Updating the ethernet drivers fixed it. Could well be that we started looking at this from the wrong end?!
  9. Maxthon 4 is basically built on MX3. I think it's a situation where if it's not broke, don't fix it. I think it's really just a means of keeping userdata in place when migrating from MX3 to MX4. Although I still question why it can't be copied to a new folder (Maxthon4) during the install process.
  10. Works here as well. I did do a re-install of Windows (unrelated to MX), but the MX install is the same. So it wasn't a Maxthon issue by the looks of it?
  11. why not building a "Top10" list of extensions the community would really love to haveI like this idea, if only to see what people feel they're missing from what Chrome offers. Ultimately having the top 10 would keep 90% of users happy.
  12. Mirageboss replied at 2014-11-21 00:02 I’m having same issue… any update else I’m moving to Chrome or Safari. Apparently it's not available in the most recent release. See here for the comment from BugSir007.
  13. The data for QA is in the qa.dat file here: Maxthon4\UserData\Public\QuickAccess\Frame It can be extracted using the tools in the Skins SDK thread. It seems that it is loaded as an internal Maxthon page (mx://res/quick-access/template/public/...) I'm not sure if/how you can access that using an extension. The other option is to directly modify the qa.dat file and offer it for downloading as has been done by zork here. But not really as accessible as the former method. Not sure if you can do anything with that info though.
  14. There's no need to create a poll. I can guarantee the majority will want it. The question is how to do it. The current system isn't in a position where you can just flick a switch and make them work. They can go to being a Chromium clone like Opera, Nitro etc. which would make it easier as the base code is there, but then you potentially lose features of Maxthon as it is now.
  15. Been doing some testing myself, and it seems you're right it just updates with the cloud version. Makes me wonder how it determines what the most recent/correct version is? To my knowledge QaSnap.dat is just the screenshots of any websites if you use that option.
  16. ElDoRado1239 replied at 2014-11-19 03:08 but what exactly is so great about Chrome extensions...? I certainly don't miss them at all.There's nothing great about them, it's just that there are lots of them. And that's only because it's the most used browser in the world so naturally more people create them for it. While Chrome might have several extensions in each category, Maxthon doesn't have one in some - most notably, no AdBlock which users have been asking for a long time, and VPN extensions, like Hola. If Maxthon had at least one working extension in each major category then there wouldn't really be a reason to complain. Things are happening with AdBlock, and if only Hola would jump on board there wouldn't be too many major missing extensions.
  17. Yeah, that's the problem with syncing. I'm not sure how exactly it figures out which one is the most recent - i'm guessing date. Because the old one probably wasn't touched for a while, MX thinks the cloud one is newer so updates it to that. You can try disabling sync, restoring the file with all your sites, then add one new item to QA, enabling sync. That way the local version is more up to date than the cloud version. When you go to sync it should update the cloud with the updated local version. But i'm not 100% sure on that. At worst at least you've got all your sites so you can restore them all one by one if it can't be figured out. I also updated the path to the file in the post above. I had it with the guest folder, it should be the maxthon email account name. But it seems you figured that out. Otherwise you'll only be changing the guest account, not your passport account.
  18. The QuickAccess data is saved in \UserData\Users\\QuickAccess\QaConfig.dat If you have access to an older install that still has the file intact you should just be able to copy it back to the current version.
  19. Actually both of you are right and wrong at the same time. All you need to do is rename or delete the NPSWF32_XX_X_X_XXX.dll file. If it's not found in that folder the system installed version will be used. Changing the name to NPSWF32.dll probably won't work as I think that is a valid filename, so it will probably still be found and used. Moving the latest version from the windows folder should work as stated, even if it's not registered in the system properly due to the filename differences. At worst it won't be found and you're back to the first point. As shown in the image below, the Adobe Flash test page shows that is installed and working, but the file in the Maxthon folder is an older version which has been renamed with a .org extension. I've been using this means since it was first found out, and it has not ever caused an issue (that I recall) with Flash not working or the wrong version being found.
  20. As fOrTune® said, there are backups on your system. You should be able to just copy the most recent favxxxx.dat to the folder above and replace the favorite.dat that is there. Take note of the file sizes as well. An empty fav list is very small. I'm not sure how this affect a passport account though, as it might re-sync from the cloud? Whatever you decide to do, make copies of everything before you start playing around with it. Using two versions at the same time may cause issues if the MX sync servers can't figure out what version is what. I'm not sure how that would work, it could be part of your issues, or it could be something else entirely.
  21. I don't get email notifications of my Maxthon forum threads. Can you tell me how to fix that?Not a feature of the forum unfortunately. I assume that means the Maxthon Download/Pop-up box that appears above the video? Yes.Yes. That's part of it. it only recorded 20 seconds and no visual.It's due to the way Youtube streams videos. As stated above, MX downloader isn't able to find the complete file, it only downloads what it being streamed, which is small pieces. I think there is a way around it but you need to enable Youtube Centre, so you may as well the download link option that it offers. To remove previous downloads in the listing, just click the clear completed button in the downloader window. If they're marked red because of an error you need to click the X in the top right which will pop up dialog asking if you want to delete the file as well.
  22. ElDoRado1239 replied at 2014-11-18 07:41 Ok, it should be fixed. Too bad the Extension Center didn't just say something like "syntax errors" ... Works well. Too bad the Extension Center didn't just say something like "syntax errors" or whatnot.I've been at them about this. It seems extensions are actually looked at by someone, so I can't see why they elaborate a little more. Makes it easier for everyone involved.
  23. There are clicks in the sound at its worse, and the picture will "stutter" and occasionally jump forward, as though trying to remain in sync with the audio. Additionally, when clicking pause, the audio will stop but the picture will continue for several seconds, as though it is "catching up" to where the audio terminated.Clear case of not enough CPU grunt for the application. The question is why. I'm still thinking it's a flash issue. When you check task manager is it only the Maxthon process that is at 100%? The CPU tends to vary according to movement in video: high movement = max CPU; and conversely it will decrease when there is little movement (720px).That makes sense due to the way videos are decoded. If there is little on screen there isn't much for the decoder to do. I really don't know what more to offer. Apart from running in safe mode in case something is causing the issue, all i'd be doing is requesting more info on what is happening with CPU/GPU usage. You can download Process Explorer and have a look at the GPU/mem usage in case there is something going on there. It's much more in-depth than the basic programs in Windows. Click on the graphs in the top right to open up a larger window to see GPU usage etc.
  24. So played around a little more. Seems all the suggestions are part of the update.db file in the \public\SmartUrl folder. If you create a new empty text file named update.db and mark it read-only then things will go back to normal. The only caveat is that it seems when typing in the address bar the matched URLs are a little slower than normal. Not 100% on that, but that's what it feels like. And of course i'm unaware of anything else it might break. I wonder how long till this is broken as well? Once again dev's, give users the option to disable it. None of the other major browsers that also offer this force it on users - they all allow it to be turned off. NOTE: You must keep the HOSTS file workaround enabled, as this does not override that fix. - On a somewhat related note, there seems to be some porn links in the suggestions - type in "you" and you'll get at least two. Now, it doesn't bother me, but if you have kids using Maxthon and they stumble across them - well it doesn't bode well for a family friendly browser does it?
  25. EDIT: See the next post for latest update. I've found there is an easy way which is to simply remove/rename the MxSmartUrl.dll file from the install folder, but that also removes favourites & recently used URL suggestions as well. Unsure of what else it might break as well. You also can't replace it with a previous version as MX just crashes. Now again with version our privacy is being sent to who knows where and used who knows how and sold to who knows whom whenever we type a word in to the address bar.As stated in my previous post it's now local, you can disable your network connection and you will still see them as it seems that the suggestion list data is kept in a maxthon file. So the data isn't leaving your PC. Doing some snooping of the data MX sends I couldn't find any other random urls that it's using (unless it's encrypted?). So from a privacy standpoint I don't believe there is an issue. It's just annoying seeing pointless suggestions which could be used for my history or fav's etc.
