Anyway to get the site icons up without requiring any text or character? I prefer for the icons to stand alone.

at the moment you can have text alone ore both icon and text...

as a workaround you can manually edit your favorites and remove the title (leave a dot, I know there's a way to display a space, but can't remember how, @PHYR will probably be able to help)

Yeah, I did the manual edit, trying the period (dot) and then eventually going with the first letter of the site name. Not sure how a space after a period helps.

It's not a space after the period.  Just edit the Favorite on the Favorites Bar, then delete everything that is in "Title" line, then hold down your left Alt key and type 255.  That's all there is to it and you will be left with only the Site Icon.

Maybe can add a disabled option of "title". I have sent your proposal to design team~

what will happen to groups (no icon) ? and to sites which display a blank icon ? I have several of them...

strange... Let me ask the technical people this should be caused by which reason, and we have a check.

That's the point - this (Update site icons) doesn't work at all !

Here is another user http://forum.maxthon.com/index.php?/topic/19641-maxthon-49-błędy/&page=5#comment-101654 with exactly the same issue.

Works fine on M4.9.3.100, but I use only 250 bookmarks. The problem is when you use more than 250~and more, that's the issue here.

I think we're getting way off track here.

OP wants icons only on the favourites bar. This can't be done via any maxthon option, but can be done by removing the title and replacing it with an invisible character as noted above. Folders/groups won't have any icon as they don't have any icon associated with them, so will still show title only. But if you set one folder as your favbar folder, then I don't think that is too much of an issue as it's only showing frequently used sites.

The favicons not showing/being updated is another problem entirely.

yes and no : I would remove text if I had working icons.... 

Another way is :

use “Windows + R” to open run window - input "%appdata%" - click "ok" - open "Maxthon3" folder - open "Public" folder

then you can see a folder named "Site icon" - rename it as "Site icon1"

next repeat the "Update site icons" operations I mentioned in last reply.

Please have a try and tell me it work or not~ Thanks, girl~

when I perform a clean install I delete all maxthon files in appdata and it did not fix it.

I have never had a problem with site icons being updated.  Only time it slows down is on the very last one and that one takes about 20 seconds to finish.

 

It looks like only people living in Europe have this issue... could be network related.

i have had mixed success - using the early builds of 4.9 i had more blank icons than site icons but of late its worked perfectly and as No1 the only slowdown is the last icon - but its always been like that though 3 and 4

Thanks for this!

It's just a workaround for now but certainly works great.

Reducing my favorites to 249 did the job.

552 icons here. All ok apart from dead links. So being eu related seems to still ring true.

Would really be nice to know the cause of this? Can someone test a clean portable version with importing fav's from your installed MX and see what happens? At least then we might be able to narrow down the problem.

If it still happens on a clean install, then it's related to the way the favicons get updated (or the amount?). If not, there's something else at play relating to connection possibly?

Going out on a limb here, but could be network related. Lot's of outbound connections in a short period of time might look suspicious, so they're being dropped or blocked. 

Does anyone have access to another net connection or phone to see if that somehow has something to do with it?

Not exactly true.  I have 256 and as you can see by my post, I have no problem.

It has to be in some way related to user location - only users from EU have issues with update .

And I always try on clean portable version... without succes.
