    Hi all,

    I recently updated my Tab 2 10.1 to Jelly Bean 4.1.1 BUT ever since I did it the default Internet app doesn't remember my home-page - or should I say the settings remember my homepage but the about:blank screen is what loads. My saved bookmarks were removed aswell.

    On top of that - whenever I try and close the Intenet app (by pressing the X on the page tab) a new about:blank page loads - whereas previously the app closed down. If I then press the back arrow (bottom left) the window closes BUT the process is still running in the background and I have to close it via the Task Monitor.

    I have read in another thread that clearing the cache should resolve it BUT it doesn't do anything other than re-wiping my saved bookmarks again..

    All other apps seem to close down correctly.

    Anyone got any thoughts?

    An idle task will eventually be removed from memory by the OS... more quickly if another active app needs the resources. While it is sitting there idle, it does no harm. This seems to be something that people with history in DOS and Windows don't easily grasp.

    However, it is bizarre that there is no way to cleanly exit the app. I would suggest finding another browser that acts the way that you want it to act.

    same issues with the music app. it remains in the notification bar even when i am not playing and the close button in the notification which was available in the previous release is gone and only way to close it is to go to task manager and kill the process.

    I have read some were that there is a setting that will kill the process as soon as we exit using the back button(This could be useful for certain apps) but i am not sure if this setting exists. need to check....
