    Anyone else having this problem?

    I'm not talking about portrait vs landscape for the home screen.

    When I'm using the web browser on Droid, it seems stuck in landscape mode and try as I may to move the phone around, I cannot get it to switch to portrait mode when using the web browser.

    With some other apps, such as email, it seems to switch between landscape and portrait when I rotate the Droid.

    And with yet some others, like Calendar, it seems to switch sometimes and other times NOT respond.

    But the browser is the one I'm finding most annoying .... why won't it switch from landscape to portrait?

    Anyone else experiencing this glitch? Any solutions?

    Go to the browser options, there is a setting for 'landscape only' that might be turned on

    Andy,
    Thanks for the tip. You are right!!

    It took me a few minutes to find "browser options," even after reading your tip. (For anyone else reading this thread, its Home Page -- to Browser -- to Menu -- to More -- to Settings -- to Landscape-Only Display)

    Thanks again, buddy!
