There have been a lot of complains posted in the forum lately about the “Click Aid” popup, this popup showed once to all Maxthon 2 users last week on launching it, the popup was a way to ask users to join Maxthon in supporting the victims of China’s disastrous earthquake by donating to the American red cross.
It’s something really shameful and disrespectful to complain about this popup, it’s the team duty to do its part in supporting the Earthquake relief, afterall Maxthon is Chinese.
And what was quite obvious from these complains that many users didn’t know that you can choose to stop receiving these announcements, it is optional, it has been optional since the early M1 versions, and it will always be optional in the upcoming releases.
To disable these messages: from Tools > Maxthon setup center > Advanced > Under “User interface” Untick “Show Message Notification Window”, then click Apply.
If the popup shows everytime you start Maxthon, try this manual hack.
The team uses these announcements to let the users know about a big event, major update, or just to give us a nice season greeting, this means that you will receive one of these every year or so, there is no harm in keeping the feature enabled.
