    Is it fading like the back light getting dimmer like the screen timeout?
    Is it always the same webpage(s)?
    Is it only when you are on wifi? or on 3G/H?
    Have you tried another brower? (Dolphin Mini, Dolphin HD, Opera, etc.?)

    Apart using a different browser the only thing I can think of is to clear data and cache from the browers using settings; manage apps....

    Ok step by step

    Home screen
    Manage Applictions
    All (third tab across the top
    Scroll right down to 'internet'
    tap on internet.
    Now clear data and clear cache.

    This might sort it out... If not maybe someone else might be able to help.

    Thanks again Will file that away ;)
    Hopefully it will solve the problem
    Always frightened of clicking Clear Data anywhere in case it stops something working lol
    Would History Eraser do that if I downloaded it?
    Been trying for ages on the pc to get into the site It kept saying maintenace:thinking:

    i wouldn't worry about history eraser app, much better for you to have control over what you're doing. it would probably just clear cache rather than data;)

    Well done that thanks So fingers crossed.
    Does that delete history also and how often should I be doing it?
    Is that the only maintenance?:thinking:

    I only clear the data and the cache if an app is really playing up.

    otherwise the only clearing out that I do is turning the phone off and turning on again. (maybe once every one or two weeks).
