    Hey, gang. I came to y'all with a problem back in December(I think), and you steered me right. So, I come to you again in hopes that you'll be able to pull it off again.
    So here's the situation. From time to time, usually when it's very inconvenient or when I'm viewing something fairly important, the website that I'm viewing simply disappears, and the phone reverts back to whatever mode it was in prior to that particular website, such as the Gmail 'inbox' or the home screen(wallpaper) of the phone. There is usually no problem reconnecting to the website. I usually go to 'menu,' 'bookmarks,' and 'history,' and open up the correct website. Unfortunately, just like initially, the website only stays open for approx. 5-10 seconds, then closes again. This doesn't happen terribly frequently, fortunately; maybe every 7-10 websites. Also, it appears that several of the same websites are causing the phone to do this, but I can't be 100% sure just yet. The problem also occurs whether the phone is in the '3G' mode or using WiFi.
    I have taken the following actions in an attempt to alleviate the problem. 1. Taking the battery out for several minutes while the unit is on; 2. Updating the firmware, profile, software, and PRL; 3. Throwing the phone very hard against a solid surface(just joking, but admittedly tempting sometimes); and 4. turning the phone off for 12-15 hrs.
    There are some other issues/questions on which I'd like your advice, but this one is the biggest and most problematic. Any advice you could provide would be great. Again, thanks in advance for y'all's help, I really appreciate it.


    Take care,

    I've had this issue as well and have not found a better solution other then using a different browser then stock and even then it has happened with certain browsers.. I've read that it was a flash issue and uninstalling flash fixes it but it never fixed it for me.. now I just use opera unless I specifically need the stock browser..

    Dear Loota, thanks for the input. Okay, so how do I go about using 'opera?'


    Thanks,
