    Doesn't seem Samsung tested their browser. This thing keeps adamantly scrolling up without giving me a chance to see the page. I scroll down, it scrolls back up. Or vice versa... It also occasionaly gets the cursor out of control - like when i can't place where i want it amd it keeps appearig in a completely random location, anywhere but where i point it to. But it's the scrolling that gets me... just typing this I can't get to the aubmit button because dumb browser keep bumping the pge up... i have to zoom out fully to be able to click it. There's no option for firmware update, but are there any fixes?

    How can you imagine this is a feature of an app that millions use without problem? It sounds like typical symptoms of touch screen malfunction issueing false touches, like after a
    too wet cleaning or other defect. Samsung is about the least suceptible to this, but it happens a lot along the edge of cheap screens after a while.

    My does it once in while. I think it has to do with the page not being fully loaded yet.

    I bet brosko is correct. Watch the top of the screen and watch the green bar as the page loads. If the page hasn't fully loaded you'll be bouncing around. I also experience this occasionally. I also have a terrible time on ESPN's web site when viewing comments, you couldn't keep up when comments were flying in. They just recently added a pause button which solved the problem. I'll bet some of the web sites are just not optimized for mobile devices.

    On the other hand, if you experience this in other applications, "dumbth" could be right, you could have a hardware problem. Good luck
