Maxthon vs. Fullscreen apps


Recommended Posts

5.2.6.1000, Win7 64 bit / Win10 64bit

every time i try to task into fullscreen application (true one, not the fake borderless one) maxthon takes focus for no reason

basically, alt + tab to fullscreen app > within a second it tasks back into maxthon > maxthon starts to resize its contents in active tab

strangely enough it does not happen if the active tab is "new tab"

Not sure what the video will show,  but anyways...

7sec Kodi.exe is started using a keyboard combination
Video is selected and starts to play on 2nd screen (not shown)
21sec Maxthon.exe restores from being minimised to a window and steals focus

NOTHING is pressed or done between 7sec > 21sec

If Maxthon.exe isn't running Kodi.exe keeps focus as it should.
 

From the focus detection program shown in the video:

Yep it does make you cry doesn't it...

Seems it's not fixed, the issue is back although doesn't seem to be as repeatable as it used to be. Might have been a one off or something.

Given the number of posts of issues of the most recent beta, it seems the core upgrade has caused a lot of issues.

Being a user who used to use MX everyday as my only browser, i've now gone to Vivaldi, using MX for various things like logins that i haven't moved over yet. But this bug could well be the one that pushes me right off the edge. It's just too annoying having to close the browser just to make something else work properly, even though that program isn't even at fault.
