Default Browser keeps closing.

I'm getting so frustrated with this phone!

I am rooted, can't remember what version. Did that finally just a month ago after getting fed up with the dialer lag.

Dialer lag is happening again, but that's not the purpose of the thread.

For the past few days, when I try to open a browser, it closes. I was using Dolphin HD, thought it was a bug with that app, so downloaded regular Dolphin. Same deal, so tried Skyfox then Opera and the stock browser. They all keep closing.

Is there anything I can do or should I just call it quits and get the Incredible?

thanks!!!

You might want to try a factory reset.

Hello anr311.

You don't mention what remedies you've tried for the browser force closes, so I'll give you the most common ones:

First, remove any task killers you may have running.

Then, go into the menu > settings > applications > manage applications and clear cache and data on the browser you're using, then un-install the ones you're not using. Reboot and test your browser of choice.

If no joy, un-install the browser you like and re-install it, reboot and test.

Still force closing? I'd start completely over but with a different ROM. You say that you don't know what ROM you're on, so I can't give you specific help yet.

Please post back with how things are going, and perhaps with some more info about your device's operating system, etc.

If this turns out to be a ROM issue, I'll move the thread over to the Eris All Things Root forums where more ROM users will likely chime in with their help and experiences (lots of ROMs out there ).

That seems to have worked, though I can't for the life of me figure out why. I had already uninstalled the other browsers and rebooted...

I am running xtrROM 3.0.3. Does that mean anything?

Thanks for your help! I'm starting to have problems with other apps, too - my Touchdown has closed on me twice now. No FC, it just returns to the home screen...

I'd re-flash the ROM, amigo.

As a matter of fact, I'd go all the way back; re-download the zip and flash.

I would not back up the apps; I'd even take the time to start over with new downloads of all of them (no task killers!).

Something has become corrupted; that behavior is the opposite of how stable xtrROM 3.0.3 is. Start fresh is my advice.
