Web Browser Crash

    When I try to load certain webpages my browser will crash as soon as it loads 100%. An example gizmodo.com, it only happens with the full version of the site not the mobile version. It appears to be javascript related, because when I disable javascript the page will load without crashing. This happens both in the standard browser and in DolphinHD. Also, sometimes before crashing DolphinHD will show a page saying:

    "The Web page at file:///android_asset/webkit could not be loaded as:

    The requested file was not found. webkit/"

    Anyone else experiencing this? Any ideas?

    The first time I used the Captivate in store to load MAPS it crashed on me, so I am assuming the phone just can't handle some things. Hope somebody can find more out on this problem of crashing.

    It doesn't seem to be a general crashing issue (though that may exist). It happens each and every time I load specific pages. I searched for this problem, and it seems to be happening on the vibrant and the droid x. Have yet to find a solution though. Thanks for responding by the way.

    I was about to suggest the exact same thing.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Doesn't seem to be crashing in Opera Mini, but it also looks like some of the page content isn't showing up. I'm happy to use opera until the problem gets figured out though. :)

    Same thing on my phone woot.com crashes with or without javascript turned on. Loads fine in Opera for me.

    I get the same problems using Dolphin or Skyfire. Doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason to what site or if it's a mobile/full website.

    BTW this is on my Samsung Vibrant.

    This sucks I can't visitcertain websites. It works with opera mini but it doesn't load everything on the page. Anyway I can turn off any of that flash that loads up in websites?

    Throwing out another "me too" - riteaid.com doesn't work either - crashes my browser before the page finishes loading. I sent an e-mail to Samsung regarding this. Opera Mini does seem to work well (and offer a few more features) - may start using this from now on anyway.

    Gizmoodo full site works for me, however Woot does not. Strange indeed....

    hey guys. new here. just got a captivate and noticed the same problem with gizmodo. sometimes it loads, sometimes it doesn't. this is always with the full site and there doesn't appear to be any rhyme or reason. it happens with one or two other sites i can't remember right now. also, with the phone in portrait mode, some of the content on ESPN.com doesn't show up. don't have an answer, but i dont think it means that those who haven't experienced the problem never will.

    If I disable the "Enable Plug-ins" setting from the Browser it works perfectly, give it a try!

    As Mentioned above, you can either disable Java or the plug-in options in the browser settings for the time being. We have fixed this issue and the soon-to-be-released Maintenance release includes this fix.

    Thanks for choosing Samsung!
