    Have you installed flash 10.1 yet? I had a similar issue and installing flash after the update fixed my problems.

    Which Flash to install? I get the green arrow, click it and the browser, stock and Dolphin, closes.

    well after more testing...... it was discovered that this was just a temp fix, as i used this to fix my "unoffcial" 2.2 update, it seems that turning off the phone and turning it back on causes the problem to return

    idk if this is for everyone but it happened to me and i couldn't get it to stick no matter what i did...... the OTA might be diffrent and you might not have reacurring issues.... as i have the pre OTA 2.2 i can not test that factor

    the 2nd option if this will not work to fix the problem is to do a full factory reset.... and it should fix the problem for good...(so far anyways)
    3 hours lastnight trying to test diffrent things and then resetting my phone and re-doing everything again..... yeah i was not too happy

    Question... did any of you have 10.1 installed prior to updating to 2.2? I have read that that has caused huge issues. Also are y'all on the manual Update or the OTA?

    i see, so theres pretty much no real solution to this problem, should i just go ahead and do the factory reset, because that link up top, i downloaded it and i couldnt open it, i guess cause it was a .bin file?, have nothing to open it with, thats the error i keep getting.

    There are your problems right there... the update installs Flash 10.1 and it does not like the earlier version at all. Do a Search through the forums... EarlyMon posted about this.

    but yeah i can not find anyother way to fix this
    i've done the flash .apk, i did a full memory wipe of my browser
    tried to install the flash .apk a few times after soft restarts to get it to stick
    did like 2 hours of internet serches looking for more solutions

    i know the file fixes the problem, but for some people its only a temp fix i haven't heard too much more from people that have tired it

    factory resets are always a last resort for me and i really don't like telling people to do it unless there is no other way

    but if the file won't fix the issue permently then it seems its the only option to do right now...... or try to get an HTC tech rep to see what they say?

    i know about the problem
    i've been trying to help people fix it along with find ways to fix it

    it is no longer a problem for me as i finally gave in and did a factory reset lastnight

    well option 1: is to put the file on your SD card, install it again after every soft reset.... (annoying) till a possible better fix is found
    option 2: set the flash to ondemand in your browser settings... this will keep flash from loading unless you want it to.... once again till a better fix is found

    or 3..... full factory reset
