    You can't use your user data from 4.4.8 with 4.9.3 and expect it to work properly despite what you might have read in this forum by some users.

    I really wish this idea would die. I'm not saying that it doesn't help starting clean especially in some situations (moreso if you have a passport account), as some users have shown. But to say that you can't use previous userdata is just plain wrong.

    Using a passport account does exactly the same thing, except that it gets imported from the cloud. Maybe just the guest account folder should be imported in portable, not the entire UserData folder? But in my experience i can't say i've had any major issues doing just that.

    Also in the case of portable, if you're not using passport, that would imply you would need to re-enter all your MagicFill data & settings. And that is just stupid.

    I just tested that site with saved MagicFill data on 4.4.8 & 4.4.3, imported the userdata by copying to 4.9, and it works as expected.

    I really wish I could remote into users systems at times to deal with issues like this. Would be so much easier than waiting on feedback or getting wrong answers, or going around in circles. Obviously that's not going to happen though.

    Thanks again.


    Can you please do the tests in the above post...You can't expect any fix without answers to the questions asked.

    Hereby what it shows:

    Something doesn't look right. Was that entry from a newly extracted portable version with no userdata imported/not signing in to passport?

    On mine it shows the user/pass fields with the complicated field names, yours is just Username/Password. Also missing is the match rules field which i'm pretty sure is a requirement. How or why they aren't there is a big question?

    The fact that the field names are wrong is probably why nothing gets entered. Although that doesn't quite make sense as using a General Identity to fill does fill the correct fields. But that's not the issue at the moment.

    I've tested that site on my current install, a test portable install (4.4 & 4.9), an installed version - and every single version works as expected and the magic fill data shows as my image on all of them.

    And the only conclusion i can come to (without confirmation of the above), is that you're still importing old userdata and that is what might be causing the problem.

    Also try making a General Identity with the username/password for that site, then double click the field and choose the newly created identity from the dropdown and see if that fills properly. It should work, and that would be the only workaround I can think of till we figure out the rest.

    360/720p using HTML5
    All options using Flash

    So possibly not detecting properly what MX can support?

    42 minutes ago, magg said:

    it could be caused by outdated Blink core (?!)

    Edit: Nope. Works also fine with IE11. So it has to be something with Maxthon

    And these are related how? Assuming it is Blink related, what happens in IE has no relevance.

    After several Maxthon's restarts all quality options show up as should it be.

    That is odd though. Says that it does work, just that the planets need to align for it to work properly?

    Was thinking that possibly might be related to a HTML5 option that MX doesn't support, but the above throws that out the window as it technically shouldn't work at all if that was the case.

  4. See the below image. Bing was my default search engine (marked in red), so when using MMS, Bing results are shown by default. If I want to check Google/Yahoo/Amazon (marked in green) using the same search term I can just click one of those and it does a search using them.

    Basically what it does is saves you from going to a search site and entering the term each time... instead just click a button.

  5. I think the CSE option is more just an affiliate link, so they get paid something when a user does a search. Otherwise just a plain Google search AFAIK.

    MxMS is supposed to search multiple search engines and either amalgamate the results to the most relevant from each, or show the top few of each engine. I can't get working, so can't say much more than that. In theory it should be the best seeing as it's using more than one search engine. Whether it's faster, I doubt it as it would need to collate the data from multiple sources. As far as settings, from what I can tell the only options are what other search engines you can select for a particular type of search.

    Otherwise stick to Google if that's what you're used to and are happy with the results.

  6. First try right-click > refresh on the tiles.

    If you're using a passport account, then a clean install would be recommended. Your userdata will be restored when you login again.


    You can try the following:
    Open an Explorer window (WIN+E), enter %appdata%\Maxthon3\Users\[ACCOUNT_NAME]\QuickAccess into the address bar. In the folder there should be a file named QaConfig.ini. Rename this file to QaConfig.OLD.

    Restart Maxthon and see if it refreshes properly.

    Note: [ACCOUNT_NAME] = your login name

  7. Just tested the link in the image (an actual link provided would have been nice ;-) ) and I can't see any issues running in MX Retro/ultra or other chromium browsers or IE11 and Edge? Page looks the same on all, and refresh as expected while dev tools is open.


    Is that link the problem? or is it something that you're doing on your end?

    Otherwise as joemax noted, use Retro which uses Trident to render the page.

    Can you test using a newly extracted portable version?

    Download, extract, run, save a password and see what happens. Don't sign in to passport .

    Can you please do this so we can know for sure if it's your install, and not something system related.

    Also when you save the data, what shows in the magic fill saved passwords box? (block any private info please) I'm only looking for the fieldnames (eg. ctl00$PlaceHolderLogin$... )

    1.5 MBs of Favorites.

    :huh: How many favs do you have? I've got over 500links and it's only ~50kb? Either you've got literally thousands of links (16000+ by my calculations), or their is something wrong?

    15 minutes ago, Jrel said:

    Favorites folder got a period space period space added to the beginning of it, as in ". . Zennheiser EDM Drums.html"

    Any chance you can copy/paste the actual title of that site or provide a link?

    That there are over 290 in the folder that is giving it could very well be the reason.

    Just did a test with all my favs (557) combined into one folder and imported to MX. No issues, and populated instantly.

  10. 2 hours ago, Jrel said:

    Well, it has been 42 minutes now and still nothing showing in the Favorites sidebar.

    Yeah, the slow favs at start is an issue, but your's isn't that - and definitely not after 40+minutes. And that's quite evident given that it just won't show after numerous attempts.

    To narrow it down quicker, import half the list, if it works then it's in the other half, then do the same again with the balance etc. Using the export/import from folders option is easier to work with, but editing the HTML file is also an option.

    EDIT: seems you may have found the problem link.

  11. Just now, Jrel said:

    The longest part is uninstalling and reinstalling.

    Test using a portable version. Extract into a folder and export/import in that using the guest account. Assuming you're not logging to passport, it won't affect any of your current data and if you need to try again, just delete and extract a new copy.

    Once you find the issue you can then delete/change that in your installed version and hopefully that will resolve the problem.

    Just make sure you don't have your installed version running at the same time.

  12. I'm thinking (based off some previous issues) that their may be some problem with some non-standard characters in one/some of your favourites. While it doesn't make sense that it shows in the favbar, but not others, it may be the way MX deals with the data in each section.

    To test this you can export/import only certain folders at a time till the issue shows again. That should lead you to the culprit, Or check the exported favs file in a text editor and search for any weird looking characters.

  13. So it's something related to your passport data/settings.

    I haven't tried logging into my account or importing my old favorites yet.

    If you export you favs from the passport account, and import to the guest account and the same thing happens then it's something/link in the favs.

    If it does work, then it's a settings issue somewhere.

    If I click on the Star, and then click on Favorites Manager,

    But do you see your favourites in the favourites list - sidebar and toolbar? Or just on the favourites bar?

    What happens when you try and export your favourites? Does the resulting file end up empty? or with the correct links?

    6 hours ago, Jrel said:

    But in the new version,, starting the Favorites Manager starts the mx://favorites/ page,

    Which is how it's supposed be.

    6 hours ago, Jrel said:

     Even if I go to the "about:favorites" page in the new version, there is nothing there.

    about: pages have been changed to mx: and redirect to the equivalent mx: page if they are used.

  15. Test with a new extracted portable version as above.

    The test is to see if your settings are the problem, not the version that is installed.

    I still can't enter this site using Magic-fill .

    Just read this again, and that sounds different to your initial post of  "'Magic-Fill' isn't  inserting Uname & Password"

    When you say isn't inserting data, do you mean:
    1/ nothing is filled in the field?
    2/ the fields are filled, but on clicking enter the filled details aren't registering?

    I have tested the first option, data is filled. But can't check to see if it's registering as i don't have an account.

    On the other hand, "can't enter this site" sounds like the 2nd option in which case it's possibly an issue with the way Maxthon deals with some of the newer text entry fields. In which case - fill the data as normal, move your cursor to the field and type any key then delete that letter and see if it then logs you in.

    6 hours ago, Al0n C. said:

    it's won't work because of  AutoComplete="off" exist on the HTML page

    I'm 100% certain that has nothing to do with Magic Fill. It's related to typing into the field and it will autocomplete based on previous entries. In Magic Fills case, it enters all the details instantly.

  16. Did you change to Retro to get Netflix working? If so, i don't think the popup video works in Retro.

    If you had it working in Ultra using Flash, then that is just as much of a mystery as i didn't think Netflix was using flash?

    And what useragent are you and were you using when things were working properly?

  17. Were you always using a passport account?

    Check your userdata to see if there are any back up files.

    Open an explorer window, type %appdata%\Maxthon3\Users\[EMAIL_ACCOUNT]\Favorite into the address bar.

    There should be a number of files and a favbackup folder. Go into the favbackup and see if there are any files there that a dated earlier and/or bigger than the favorite.dat in the favorite folder.

    If there is, copy that file to the favorite and rename to favorite.dat,

    Be sure to make a backup of the favorite folder first!! If there are any issues you can go back to where you started.

    If you're unsure, take a screenshot and post here.
