    Hello!

    I'm sure most of you know with the upgrade to Lollipop, there's a feature that allows you to click on a link (using the stock text app) in a text message and an in-app browser comes up (i.e. you don't have to leave the stock text app to view the link/content).

    So my problem/question is
    : After clicking on the link, it takes me to the page but no content is displayed (see uploaded screenshots). It's obviously there because if I just press the blank space and it happens to be hyperlinked content, it takes me to the next window, but there is still no content (refer to uploaded screenshot). However, when I press the back button/arrow, the content pops up for a half-second. Anyone else experience this? Workarounds? I have done a soft reset as well as wiped my cache partition...

    I'm using the Note 7...(but I want to say it was happening on my Note 5 as well...)

    I have that problem with the stock browser sometimes. What is set as your device's default browser?

    The stock Internet app. Should I change it to Chrome (Beta?) or something different?

    You could try that, see if it works any better. What device and Android version?

    I'm on the Note 7 w/Android 6.0.1. I just tried changing it and it automatically defaults to the stock Internet app when navigating to a link through the stock text app. Samsung is recommending a reset...
