search engine aliases missing


Recommended Posts

After installing MX6, none of my search engine aliases are working, and all my saved search engines were deleted.

It seems that the "alias" shortcut has been replaced with "keyword", but why did this not transfer over from MX5 to MX6? This is the kind of stuff that makes users not want to upgrade their browser to a newer version!

It doesnt switch  search engines with every option i try.

Well apparently I'm doing something wrong because I can change to any search engine in the list, close Maxthon, re-open Maxthon and it stays to what I have changed it to. I'm on 6.1.3.2900 on Windows 11 Insider build 25126

Hi Greek, please update to the latest version 6.1.3.2900 then try this issue again. If you still experience the issue in v6.1.3.2900, please try to disable the extensions you installed from the extension center then try this issue again.

If you still experience the issue after disabling the extensions in v6.1.3.2900, please send the latest log file to me. To find the log file, you could open the folder "User Data" > "Log Files". ?

 Well , i did the update to 2900  and still had the same issue. But... I did follow your recomendation and disabled some extension  about  search engines  , such as image reverse search , duck ducjn go anti sniffing (i think) and  it  worked. Thanks a lot!

So this thread kind of got hijacked into a discussion on default search engines.

Has the bug causing all search engine aliases to be deleted been fixed yet?

Hi vedicaudio, could you please hover on the search engine and then edit them manually?

This has just happened to me as well now. I have been using duckduckgo for a long time as my default then today Mx threw a fit and lost many of my settings. 
I went through and reset the changed ones but now Search engine is Google Max and this cannot be changed to any of the other displayed engines.
Is there a solution to this yet?

EDIT: Found a solution switch off the Duckduckgo privacy essentials extension !!! This was one of the settings that got changed during the misbehaviour earlier
