    I installed the OTA manually last week and now when I go onto the internet it always puts me on the homepage (google). So for example, if I'm reading ESPN.com and the screen shuts off after 30 seconds of inactivity, on 1.5 when I clicked on the internet icon again it would take me back to ESPN.com. Now on 2.1 it brings me back to my homepage. It's so friggin annoying to have to go back and forth. Any setting change that will fix this?

    Check to see if it is opening a "new window"...I notice at times, I will go to Menu -> Windows and there are several open even though I never opened them

    If you long press the home button and open the browser from the recent programs popup it will reopen as you left it.

    Are you running any sort of task killer with an auto kill feature? It sounds like you are killing the app when the screen shuts off. Auto TK or spare parts maybe?

    I'm running Task Manager. I didn't know it would do something like that. I'll give that a try.

    Thanks OTD!

    IT WORKED! Now if I could just tweak a few more things it would make 2.1 so much more enjoyable.
