    maybe its just my phone acting "special" but if I open the browser and allow Google to find my location (its my home page) then the browser will close while trying to find where I am.
    If I stop it before it gets to that part and open a different page or just decline the website's ability to find my location then it will stay up and running without further issue.

    Anyone else seeing this?
    Any suggestions?
    I've cleared all cache, cookies, etc etc.
    Maps works fine and finds my exact location so I'm just kinda uuhhhh not sure

    Also just noticed that none of my email connections will connect.
    Google says No connection
    Comcast/Hotmail says can not safely connect to servers

    I couldn't get a location either... went to browser settings and selected "clear location access"

    as waiting is not my strong suit I did a factory reset and all was good, switched to Home++ and it started acting up again. Uninstalled and reinstalled Home++ and now golden across the boards.
    Well so far as the install goes (google working as well as browser, setting up comcast and hotmail now)

    the factory reset wasn't really too bad. I'm back up and running at full steam now.

    Do you have a home replacement? If so I would suggest uninstalling it to see if that clears up your issues (maybe a normal reset after the uninstall).
