I had delete history on exit checked on my history.That days web browsing would delete on exit. This is no longer the case even though its still checked. And when I go into past days histories I can no longer delete them by clicking on the (x) I get a dialog box stating this action cannot be done. Any info on why the history can not be deleted on exit or by manually clicking on it any longer.  I like this browser but like my privacy much more. Does anyone know what has changed.

nothing changed on my side, I still can manually delete my history (online history is still available)... but since I just checked, my history is now empty therfoer I cannot tell if the automatic cleaning on exit works..

you may try to perform a clean install to see if it helps

One of the history files are possibly corrupt so it doesn't clear them properly, at least from similar situations in the past.

Delete the History.dat files in %appdata%\maxthon3\UserData\Users\[USER_ACCOUNT]\History

Replace USER_ACCOUNT with guest if not using a Passport account.
