Maybe if you'd had Maxthon installed previously on that machine it could explain it but you haven't. Occasionally I come across a portable that won't accept long...

I've been running 4.2.1.800 beta today, the most noticeable and welcome difference is that the downloader is working properly again, even in Sandboxie. I was having problems with that in 4.2.0.

Concerning downloads, I have found that the download manager sometimes fails to open On Top for some reason, so it seems as if the download isn't working but alt-tab shows that it is.

Alternatively once you've downloaded the skin, you can just double-click it and select Maxthon to open it.

I do like the Snapper one, definitely my favourite so far : )

Well I do agree with all of that, for me though it's still too buggy to be my main browser and the lack of any equivalent to Noscript is another factor against it.
