I wasn't using flash at the time but it did give me an idea. I had downloaded and installed Flash 10 because . . .well I want videos while I'm out and about lol. Soon as I uninstalled and erased the flash 10 file, all the browsers booted up no problem. I'm trying out Skyfire, it's letting me view a large group of videos, not all of them but better then nothing.
Also I did make the back up, followed the instructions to the letter. Just wanted to make sure I could go back if I needed/wanted to. However 2.2 is running very smoothly and most of the issues I was having with the phone have diminished.
Thanks for the help.
