    This is really frustrating - when I view webpages and want to click on links/buttons (like the "Submit" button or on the Facebook page, the "Confirm" button or "Post" button), sometimes they do NOT work. Nothing happens. Sometimes it will work, and I notice when I reboot my phone it will start working again (for a while, then stop again). I don't get it and it is really annoying. Is there something wrong with my phone or is this an Android problem? It doesn't just happen on the Facebook webpage, it happens on others too, it as if nothing registers when I tap a link/button.

    Any help/suggestions? It would be nice to actually surf the web with no problems. And I know this does not happen on the iPhone, so it can't be a webkit problem...

    Thank you in advance!

    I would try increasing the cache space and clear it out every couple of days.

    How do I do clear out the cache space and clear it out? Is this the reason I am having this problem? Thank you for your response.


    EDIT:
    My cache size has already been at the limit (6 mb), so I can't increase it anymore. I just cleared my cache though like you said.

    Is this the cause of my problem? Does anyone else have this problem? It seems a bit ridiculous. Thanks for your response

    No unfortunately it did not - I cleared my cache and cookies, and my cache was at the max size already. I just rebooted my phone and that worked.

    Annoying - any ideas as to why this is happening or any other solution besides rebooting my phone all the time? It will now work for a little bit and then at some point buttons/link won't respond again. I have the default settings in my webpage settings...

    I have experienced the same problem. I noticed sometimes it had to do with the number of windows open. The browser does not always give you the warning. Try closing all the other windows then choose the link. Also try holding the press a little longer. Our even scrolling up or down the page slightly. These are sone things that worked for me. Hope that helps.

    I notice when this happens you just gotta close the browser (actually close not hit the home button) and reopen the webpage. Happens in stock browser and dolphin hd.
