    So I am now on my 2nd Verizon Galaxy Nexus...
    My browser keeps closing even after a reboot AND a factory data reset.
    It doesnt happen RIGHT away, but happens rather soon or quickly.
    I'm not running anything else.
    Currently stock, my browser will randomly quit and close, and I'm losing my open window.
    This happens even with just one tab open.
    I never had this happen on my first G Nex.


    On Screen Camera viewfinder window has large square pixel areas, looking horrid when in dark or night time environments.
    I dont remember this on my 1st G Nex either.
    :( GRRRRR! :(

    My browser is screwed up also. I can open one or two pages then it freezes.

    Thats what Im hoping as well.
    My only concern is that my 1st G Nex NEVER did this.

    Mine does it also. Nothing major, just closes and goes back to home screen. Just need to reopen the browser and I can pick right back up where I was. Very annoying.

    Yep. That happens.... OTA for christmas!? Doubt it
  8. Mine will close sometimes but it is not frequent and not due to a certain page or something. It has happened probably 5 or 6 times throughout the past week.
  9. Same thing mine does sometimes.

    My browser quits at least a dozen times a day.
    Sometimes it just jumps to homescreen,
    Other times it completely force closes. (Without FORCE CLOSE PopUP)

    How do you get the browser back if it is uninstalled?

    Mine does this quite often too..

    If fact it closed when I clicked this thread.

    How ironic....

    Mine has been having problems lately. I will try to exchange it Monday

    I had this happen several times while on an undervolted kernel. Switched to stock settings and its been good so far. More testing needed but I think it may be related to power management.

    I have the same problem. It probably closes once every half hour, but I can always just open it back up and my tabs are still there. Annoying but workable.
