Maxthon Browser Not

I was searching desperately for answers as to why, no matter what I try, my Maxthon browser seems incapable of displaying certain webpages. [see image] Unlike firefox, you can google queries until you turn blue and not find answers.

The trouble began with twitter. I wasn't able to correctly view or interact with twitter in either offered "browswer mode." Sometimes if I clear the cache twitter will render correctly for a single session. But if I change websites then return to twitter, it's screwed up again.

Of late I have also had trouble accessing certain wordpress sites - same result - and blogspot, where a lot of images won't render. The problem only affects my desktop Maxthon. An older version that I have on my "internet protected" laptop*** works 100% fine.

Regular and now-and-then readers already know how I have cloudproofed and auto-updateproofed my lappie. It's an old Thinkpad that is becoming more valuable to me as days go by. Here are a few tests you can perform and tips you can apply to YOUR personal machines!

*** I acquired a Lenovo ThinkPad a year ago this summer and have dedicated the laptop to my personal media projects. I do a lot with video and audio via Skype and SoundCloud, as well as projects for my employer via Adobe Audition. I outfitted the T42 with a camera purchased for a dollar at a garage sale: it’s become a workhorse for me.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
