    Hello all,

    I searched and searched before deciding to start this thread but nothing comes close. My girlfriend just received her Droid 2 the other day and I have been helping her set it up. There was an available update so I had it installed.

    Now every time we try to use a browser, any browser, it opens for a second and then it closes to the Home screen right away. No force close, no error message, just poof and it's gone. I didn't install many apps to it like my Captivate because I figured less is more for her. She added her facebook and MySpace accounts but that's about it really.

    I looked all over the past few hours and found similar issues but none quite the same. I cleared the cache, cleared the data, nothing. 3G or WiFi made no difference. I tried with the stock browser, Skyfire, Dolphin, and xScope and same results across the board. I turned all location settings off and back on and back off again to no avail.

    I just did a factory reset 15 minutes ago and nothing has changed. I am going to do it again without allowing the Backup Assistant to do anything. I'll make a fresh google account to see if there's a difference there but I don't think it will work.

    It's not rooted or anything, it's pretty much fresh out of the box from only 3 days ago.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Now I love my Captivate 100x more than I did before lol!

    Time to take it to the store, and let the pro's handle it.

    This happens to me when I'm browsing a website with lots of flash content. But as infil said, there could be something triggering the home button to be pressed.
