    1 - Phone keeps forgetting home page and defaults to the GOOGLE-VERIZON page

    2 - When restarting the browser it does not open in the home page but rather whatever page I visited last.

    3- There is no way to go back to home page. Only way is to keep backing up.


  2. I have my home page bookmarked. When I'm finished browsing I press menu > navigate then select my home page from the favorites list.

    Next time I open my browser the home page comes up first.

    I got out of the habit of "backing out" of the browser, through all of my visited pages and websites, long ago. ;)

    #1 - dunno, that never happens to me.

    #2 - You are misinterpreting what is happening. If you push the browser to the background (for instance by using the Home softkey), and then return to it, it is at the same place you left it. The same thing will happen if memory gets low on the phone, and the browser gets "reaped" by the process trimmer. Appearances are exactly as you describe them, though. If you manually kill the browser with a task manager, the next time it will start up on the home page.

    #3 - There is a workaround: in the browser, do a Menu -> Windows and click on the + symbol to get a new window which always starts on the home page. A lot faster than hitting the back button! (Afterwards, if you want, go back into the browser Windows menu and kill the other window off.)

  4. That #3 is very handy.
