Bug Comments posted by 7twenty

  1. Just did a test using a random socks5 proxy. Seems to be working.

    Test the same with a portable version of Maxthon and see if anything changes.

    You say "my", does that mean one you've setup? If so, you may need to check your settings.

    Also make sure that you have actually selected and enabled the correct proxy - there should be a tick to the left of the name in the settings page. And make sure you select the correct type from the dropdown when adding (socks5/4/HTTP etc)

    NOTE: the below is the proxy IP, not mine!

  2. Quote

    but when I exit the board to the Forum level, the icon for that boar has not grayed out

    These sections don't use the standard forum structure. The links on the front page are only a redirect to this section, and that's why it doesn't quite work the same as the normal sections.

    Not something that can or will be fixed to my knowledge.


    SORRY, found the dropdown after posting.  But it is missing a ""Most Recent Response" choice, so I'll have to make do with the ones given.

    You can use the custom option to set that to last comment & descending. Only problem is that the setting isn't saved for future views.

    @BugSir005 Can that be made the default option?

    the portable version doesn't seem to have the sporadic search problem

    More than likely settings then.

    The most recent crashreport seems to still show a number of extensions. I'm not sure if the report just shows extensions installed, or if it's active ones.

    I don't think this will help, but can't hurt to try... delete the config.ini file in UserData\Temp\FindInPage

    It's the only settings option that's directly related to find, but doesn't mean it's not something else.

    Depending on the outcome of the above, there are other options to test, but will take some of your time if you want to go down that path.

    ok I can confirm this : follow this link : https://www.rt.com/news/346155-germany-eu-pew-poll/

    I had some older versions of FF/Chrome on which it didn't work. After updating then it did.

    Based on that, it's possibly related to the blink version, calling for something that isn't available in older versions.

    If that is the case, then the only fix will come when MX update to a more recent version.

     If you really need to see images I will do it,

    Thank you. When asking for an image I was referring to one that shows what it should look like eg from chrome. Otherwise we don't know what we should be looking for, especially if we also try other browsers that display the same. Easiest to check with is Edge/IE as it's installed by default on all systems, and they also have the same issue. Not everyone might have Chrome/FF etc installed.

    With Maxthon Cloud, is there any particular location where I would find such a file that I could back up?

    For a portable install:
    [installed folder]\UserData\Users\guest\Favorite

    Installer version:

    So, I flat out uninstalled my PortableApps.com Maxthon Cloud and reinstalled it.

    Don't use the PortableApps.com version. To my knowledge Maxthon don't officially create a PortableApps.com version, they're created and uploaded by users. It's possible if they don't notice, some of their custom settings might be transferred when creating the portable installer file. That is why the N: drive is showing.

    I'd recommend downloading directly from the forum, just download and extract the portable version: : http://forum.maxthon.com/index.php?/topic/19076-maxthon-browser-for-windows-v4482000-officially-released/ http://forum.maxthon.com/index.php?/release-notes/

    Or you can just press the "restore defaults" button in the top right of settings to restore it. Note you'll lose any other customisations as well.

    Otherwise the default folders are:
    Cache: C:\Users\[USER_NAME]\AppData\Local\Temp\Maxthon3Cache\Temp\Webkit\Cache
    Quick Save: C:\Users\[USER_NAME]\Pictures

    USER_NAME = your Windows username path

  6. 1 / not sure what this N: drive you speak of is? I don't use the cloud, but haven't come across this when testing occasionally. maybe someone else can offer something. But i'd say N: is actually a drive on your system. Open up an explorer window and check what drives are listed.

    2 / No. Again, pretty sure that isn't right and is more than likely a drive on your system.

    3 / don't sign up or at least don't use a passport account. If you sign in with Passport then you will get cloud features enabled. While you can disable them, if you only want a local account, it's easier just to not worry about it.

    4 / When you download something for the first time, you will get a dialog that asks you where to save the item. Choose somewhere on your system. All future downloads will default to that folder when the dialog opens unless you change it. But you will always get the option of where to save, you can't have it auto-save to a particular folder.

    5 / Yes, as with most things these days, changes happen frequently. If you don't want to worry about that download and extract a portable version. this won't update

    6 / Not quite. It's the latest (and last) version of that series. MX4.9 is the current branch until MX5 rolls out. MX4.9 misses out on a few features from 4.4, but is more up to date, and is recommended as you should have less issues with general browsing. If there's a feature you need from 4.4, then stick with that for now. Otherwise MX4.9 is my pick.

    7 / Can't say at this stage. But I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't. WXP is long past it's useby date, and if dropping support for it means a better and more future proof browser, then that is what the dev team should be looking towards.

  7. Pinned.

    If there's no edit option, then either it hasn't been set yet for users to do so, or for some reason this section doesn't allow it.

    I can edit it, but that's not what you want.

    If you can edit the first reply (above) but not the first post, then I can edit the first post to be just the first paragraph and state the UA's follow below. Then you can use the first reply to edit/update as required.

    Makes sense?

  8. I can also confirm Netflix doesn't work here.

    You get an error page in Ultra.
    Retro (with standard rendering) only plays audio, just a black screen otherwise.
    Trying different UA's doesn't help at all.

    Why wouldn't Maxthon give me a box to just type in text?

    Because some useragents cause an issue with this forum software, at least on this site. That's why it was recommended you use the default (unchecked) option. If it still doesn't work, then there is something else going on, but to date that has been the only known cause and fix for that problem.

    Firefox updates never alter your settings

    Neither does Maxthon.. at least not in my experience. And i'm pretty sure it's designed that all data gets imported properly anyway, otherwise the cloud sync option wouldn't work for those that use that when updating between versions.

    Another bug you can see is my bookmarks bar was displaying in triplicate.

    Noticed that. Only thing that comes to mind is a dodgy skin. Are you using a modified skin by any chance?

    Test with a clean Maxthon portable extraction, and copy over all your userdata into that version. If that works, then it's something else. If the problem is still there, then it's more than likely something in your settings files.

    The question is how do I have two different versions of Maxthon at the same time?

    Use portable versions. You can't run them both at the same time, but you can run them as separate installs, so data in one won't affect the other, unless you use a passport to sync them.

  10. Edited your post to add the content attached.


    And where is the box for posting the body of my support request?  

    Make sure you're using the default useragent. Settings > Advanced, make sure customised useragent string is unchecked.

    For the lasttabs issue, that file size seems overly large. I've got about 40 on my lasttab list, and my file size is only 7kb. Based on the size of yours, you should have about 1300 on your list... and I can't see as that being right?

    I can't recall having any issues with importing older lasttabs, but after playing around a little I noticed that did have some issues displaying the lasttabs page, worked fine in .1000 - at least in my testing of a clean portable version.

    Assuming you have a backup of the your older install (and the list isn't huge and the PC can handle it), you can do the following if the list isn't being imported properly.

    Open the last version with a known good list of last tabs.
    Open all the links in the browser, then save them all as a favourites folder. (Ctrl+Shift+D)
    Open up the new version of maxthon, open the saved favourites folder
    Exit maxthon, then open again it should hopefully have a full lasttabs list.

    I'm thinking there's something wrong with the file, as 1/ it seems way too big, and 2/ it should just import directly, otherwise there would have been plenty more reports that this was an issue.

    Could you tell me how to get this screenshot, please? What's operation?

    Ahem... see my post above. The "cleaning" program is complaining about Maxthon. Either there's something running in MX causing some high cpu usage, or MX is stuck doing something it shouldn't, in which case something needs to be looked at.

    If not, it's just a program that is complaining about nothing..

    Clean Master detected it

    Were you doing anything with the browser when this popped up.. because using the browser would cause it to use CPU strangely enough. It says it was running in the background, but doesn't mean that some site wasn't somehow still running.

    Personally not a fan of these programs, at those that run in the background trying to find issues to complain about. I think you'd be better off removing clean master.

    I've never seen this on my machine before with any version of Maxthon for android.

    It looks like some sort of "fixer" program that is supposed to find problems with the system, at least that's what the "boost" button seems to indicate to me.

    Chances are it's just eating up CPU cycles itself and not being all that beneficial.

    Also could be the sites being visited.
