    I have never had a problem playing gifs on my phone.( Through the reddit is fun app). I recently updated my phone to v2.3.3. Gifs no longer play, they wont work if i open in browser or if i save to the phone.
    ive googled the crap out of the issue but found nothing
    Any ideas?
    Edit: i also have the latest version of flash installed
    twice now ive gotten the gifs to work, then they suddenly stop working again(within 5min) for no reason
    also recently i have been roaming in places i have not roamed before not sure if this could be related some how

    yes, however there are no solutions to fix the problem
    the only thing i saw anyone suggest is that there is an option in the internet settings to turn gifs on, however there is not that option in my settings

    Don't have this phone but I read that on froyo in the stock browser it had an option to enablr gifs but on the 2.3 upgrade they took that option out. Hm.. still trying to find a way.

    I believe i have found the answer amigos. Just like OP, ive been having trouble viewing gifs since day one (main source reddit is fun app).

    I became fed up tonite and went on a solution hunt for those of us who are still rockin that og galaxy.

    Ive gotten every gif ive clicked on to run flawlessly and from multiple different hosts (imgur, senorgif, minus, tumblr). Ive rebooted my phone and still had everything work for over 24hrs now.

    The solution is simple and free.

    Open your playstore and search for opera mobile. Its a browser that will solve all of your gif problems. Be sure to download opera mobile NOT opera mini, there is a difference.

    Once you have this installed simply open your gifs through opera mobile and problem solved.

    Hope this helps solve some frustration.
