    Android 4.2.2 all links in TXT and E-mail open in the android browser. Go to apps, browser, "Reset Defaults" and the select app panel doesn't come up, just this crap browser. Acer told me to "clean boot" my phone. But now find someone else has now been told this is how it is to pass Google authentication. Makes the phone a useless POS as links don't log in using the account setting and password stored on Firefox sync.

    Do Google really demand vendors break the phone this badly or are Acer telling stories?

    How do I avoid buying another POS that does this?

    How? I have Firefox, Chome, Float Browser and Puffin installed but can't select any of them. I can open a browser but tapping on links in E-mail and TXT always open the Android Browser.

    "RESET DEFAULTS" on the android browser doesn't work (although button loses focus it gets grabbed back) so the select app panel never opens.

    Phone has been "clean boot" twice.
