Default Browser issues/questions

Hey folks,
I'm using the web browser that comes loaded onto the phone. (HTC browser, not Chrome) I use the navigation bar that's at the bottom of the screen and have customized it with my bookmarks. Issue that just started yesterday: For some reason it started opening my bookmarks in a separate window, now includes an advertisement at the bottom, and has an "X" up at the top right to close out the session. It no longer opens my bookmarks in the browser itself. Has anyone else encountered this? If so, know how to get it back to normal? I've reset the browser to defaults and it's stll doing it. Literally just started yesterday. I also can't toggle from left to right in the navigation bar either. Again, this is only affecting the navigation bar at the bottom.

Can you view my screenshot attachment? If so, you'll see that it's opening a separate window with the advertisement at the bottom and the X at the top right.

Any suggestions to get it back to normal?

why not use chrome? much better than stock.

what are your settings in the Advanced tab?

as for ads, perhaps there is something you installed that is putting ads at the bottom...

also, under the advanced tab at the bottom (i have a sprint one) there is a reset function. all else fails, just reset the stock browser to default.

Default browser slow to load pages.

My One has started on a go slow. Nearly everyday now I try to connect to the net and the little blue bar takes ages to cross the screen then stops at about a third across. The only thing that seems to speed things back up is a phone restart.

Am I missing something, is there a simple fix or do I have to put up with it?

Oh yeah doesnt matter what connection I have, does it at home, work and on my MiFI

you say "little blue bar" -- are you referring to the STOCK browser?

if so, have you used any other browser?

what carrier are you on and are you rooted?

when did this start to occur? did you remove any apps? add any apps?

are you low on storage memory? have you went into the storage tab and used the "free up more space" feature to remove unnecessary files and free up storage space?

do you have any error messages?

I've had exactly the same problem with the stock browser for the last few weeks and have been trying to see if I can get a pattern of events/actions. It happens quite irregularly and up to now I haven't been able to tie it down, although I have a feeling it could be related to having a number of tabs open and switching between them.

The browser becomes totally unresponsive, if I exit and relaunch it just hangs on page load. A force close and relaunch clears it.

I'm running Dolphin, Chrome and Opera Mini as well as stock, and all three are trouble free and there is no evidence of a problem with any other app or process.

I've had the One since middle of June, it's unrooted and I have 15Gb free memory.

At the moment I'm pretty sure it's a stock browser problem and will continue to try and find what triggers it.



Update.
I've just done a Google search and found this :-

I normally don't have more than 2-3 pages open at any given time,but,I suspect as you guys do that it has something to do w/multi-tasking & closing a few apps seems to help also.

Hopefully,the upcoming 4.3 ANDROID update will clear this up.
I REALLY like the stock browser on this phone,easily my favorite feature that makes this phone stand out from the crowd.
GOOGLE would do well to emulate the experience...................

I'm totally with you there. I've always liked Dolphin but the stock browser beats them all for me.

Cheers for the advice trying Google chrome now and will see how it goes. If anyone does come up with a proper solution that would be great.

Right I reckon I have found out the cause. The net stops when opening links from websites, mainly facebook but some forums have done but I have mainly noticed face book. Using chrome at the mo, takes some getting used to but it's a lot quicker when loading.

Seems to automatically type in massive letters as well lol

Yes, you could be right, I don't know about facebook because I never use it, but I can certainly tie it in to forums, including AF. If I hop off somewhere else either by clicking a link in a thread or opening another tab, it sometimes does the hanging bit when I return to AF.

I spoke to HTC support the other day to see if there was a known problem but there is no ticket open and I certainly wouldn't expect them to open one with the rather indefinite symptoms I've got up to now.

I can't take to Chrome at all and use Dolphin if I get pissed off with stock, mind you, it has behaved itself today - so far at least!!!

Default [browser] Home page

There used to be a home button to take you directly to your homepage I see it it's no longer there, does anyone know of a way to go directly to my Google home page when I go online ?


I'm talking about going online [via the browser], when you press the globe to go online then the three lines in the upper right hand corner there used to be a home button that would take you to whatever your internet home page is the choice is no longer there.I get to my Google home page by using its bookmark now, seems there should be another way to do this

You can customize the buttons on Boat Browser fwiw, home included.

Default Adobe Flash?

Dredged this and other threads, but don't see any reference to my problem, which indicates to me that I"m missing something obvious. Here goes, nonetheless. I just got my shiny new One. So far so good -- certainly a step up from my RAZR. But I'm having trouble with Flash support. The stock browser plays YouTube videos just fine, however I get a Flash error when attempting to play some content, for example an NPR sound clip. The Dolphin browser refuses to play any Flash content at all. I know it's got to be a setting or something that I forgot to install because the old RAZR as well as my very long-in-the-tooth Acer tablet with 4.0.3 runs Flash just fine, thank you.

All the foregoing begs the question why it wouldn't be set to run Flash out of the box. Is it licensing? Just convention?

Looking forward to getting this bit of arcana resolved.

Adobe stopped supporting flash with android 4.1

In other words, flash is effectively dead on mobile devices with it not working on iOS or the past 2(ish) years and future of android.

You can sideload flash, but it'll only work with certain browsers

Knew I hated that company when I compared the price of their PDF creation products to the price of equally serviceable PDF printers (uh, free?). Let's all raise a glass to the death of Flash and the advent of whatever comes next. Thanks for the answer.

=========================Added later=======================================
If I may add a quick edit an impose another question? What problem did Adobe solve by withdrawing support for Android? I've seen reference to something called AIR and HTML5. I'm obviously late to this party.

AIR lets certain code be universal between platforms, like Java. HTML5 video sites play fine on ANdroid browsers.

Flash installation instructions. Written for a Samsung, but the install procedures are the same.

http://androidforums.com/htc-one/713625-legacy-apps-issues-fixes.html#post5778162

I don't recall if the latest stock browser supports adding flash or not. Boat Browser, Naked Browser will.

You can install multiple browsers and then pop between them by sharing the page, you have to install a little helper called Choose Browser for that.

Sites like CNN or places with AOL videos are often a crapshoot and you may have to try a few browsers to get them to work. A lot of the web is about media and yet most media sites (news outlets, local or national for me) have zero clues about putting together working, effective web sites.

Default Stock browser annoyances -- address bar?

I usually use Dolphin or Firefox, however sometimes I need to switch. One of the reasons I really don't like using the stock browser is its habit of hiding the address bar. This seems to be particularly true of Google sites. Is this a setting? Screen space is not so limited that I want to race with the browser to quickly get a thumb on the address bar before it slides up and off the screen. And the natural gesture of pulling down the screen just brings the windowshade messages screen. What am I missing here?

I used to love the stock HTC browser and a lot of my friends still do. I think they keep changing it for the sake of change, and I get it fighting with my status bar too so I don't think it's just you.

Firefox is Firefox, Dolphin is good if you want to go with the plug-ins, but if you want a browser with a minimal interface, no extra stuff, just a conduit to the WebKit engine under Android's hood then you owe it to yourself to check out Naked Browser. It took me some getting used to it but now I'm glad I did.

Most every browser out there sends some sort of messages back to their devs, others are still trying to sort out what that's about, I gave up. Naked is guaranteed to not do that because that practice angered the Naked dev so much he simply solved it by making his own app.

If you don't care about that and don't use a lot of the Dolphin features, then Boat Browser is pretty good imo. Maxthon has a different layout and is also worthy of a check out imo.

Opera keeps going up and down in responsiveness, so if you like Opera and need some cloud acceleration (like Opera can do) along with great media handling, try out UC Browser.

At any given time I have at least 6 browsers installed, can you tell lol.

Found some Easter eggs! The corners -- and I mean the very outside corners of the stock browser yield the menus I've been searching for.

@EarlyMon, I'm going to try the Naked Browser -- with all the fluff and bloat it's nice to hear that someone understands the useful beauty of something that is stripped down to what it needs to be.

I was having the same issues with slow browsers. Tired both stock and Chrome. Here are a couple of things that helped:
- Clear cache... Sucks to do it all the time, since the dang thing should just work. Chrome seemed to accumulate a larger cache (upwards of 100mb) in a very shot period of browsing. But this can be helped by...
- Turning off the pre-fetching in your settings. As far as I understand it, this option loads multiple pages in the background, which are likely to be interesting to you. Supposed to speed things up, but I guess they didn't take the massive memory drain into account.

As far as getting to "home" without the button, I've found the quickest way is to open a new tab. Sucks though. I miss the home button.

Use the 'Labs' pie menu setting. Then it's slide in from either side -> touch planet -> release, and you're seeing the address bar. Slide to the house symbol and it goes 'home'.

Leastwise, that works on HTC's stock on the EVOlte.

Default [Firefox]Browser issue glitch

Hi

I hope someone can help me. Recently my HTC One has annoyingly started to lose my internet connection and returns to blinkfeed page to perform an update.

I am using firefox and this seems to happen when i am doing a search on the internet. I then click on the URL and whilst it tries to go to the site, the phone then returns to the blinkfeed page and performs an update. Each time I then go back to firefox it does exactly the same, basically meaning I can't search the internet.

It has only just started to do this and is very annoying.

Any ideas??

Many thanks

yes, it does the same when using internet explorer. Not tried any other. It never used to happen with firefox, it is only in the last 2 weeks it has started doing this but I haven't downloaded anything or changed settings so don't understand why it has just started to do this

well using another browser will help determine if its an issue with firefox or an issue with something on the phone.

are you rooted?
what carrier?

sorry I am not tech savvy. What do you mean by rooted and carrier. Also if the same happens on both firefox and internet explorer doesn't that suggest it is something on the phone.

Is there any settings I can use to stop blinkfeed updating so often. I have to admit I don't like blinkfeed and never use it but I don't think you can uninstall it??

One doesn't need to be tech savvy to use this device.

Internet Explorer is not on your device. The unit comes stock with a browser yes, but it's not IE. It's recommended to install Google Chrome and troubleshoot with that browser also.

Perhaps you need to reinstall Firefox. Have you done that?

You can prevent BlinkFeed from being the main screen. There is a specific BlinkFeed thread on this very page that will help you understand BlinkFeed and how to control it's updating.
