Support Phone is glitchy and lagging after Dolphin browser update?!

    Lags while scrolling, freezes often, especially if I get a text while using the browser.

    It lags even when I *don't* use the browser. I know it's the browser's fault because before I downloaded the newest Dolphin update, in 10 months my phone had only froze once. Now, it does it all the time. It even freezes when I toggle the drop down menu. I've had to do a battery pull several times, as well.

    This nonsense has taken me back the the hellish days of my Optimus M.

    What do?

    Uninstall dolphin and look for an installable apk of the older version.

    What was the previous version, I might be able to find out for you

    I'm hesitant to uninstall as I have a ton of bookmarks that'd be hell to replace. How do I do that?

    Also, how do I find it what the prior version was.

    The first answer is to import all your current bookmarks to the native Chrome then rinse and repeat with the new load of Dolphin.

    I got no clue on answer #2 :eek:

    I'd first try a full uninstall of Dolphin and a reload of the same newest version. You can't be any worse off than you are now.

    I take it you mean Chrome on a computer? Because I keep going in circles trying to figure out how to do it on my phone.

    I meant on your phone. (But could be on your PC too IF)

    You have them synched to your Google account.

    I just Googled it and it says you should have another option in Chrome after Menu-Bookmarks-Mobile Bookmarks, it should say import bookmarks, doesn't on mine I guess because I have mine set up to sync.

    Look and see if both your Chrome and Dolphin have the same bookmarks now and if so kill your current Dolphin (oh Flipperrr...) and reinstall.

    [EDIT] In Dolphin it's Menu>Privacy and Personal data>Import bookmarks

    Sometimes a cache and data clearing of the old version prior to updating will prevent those issues. Too late for that, but you can still uninstall the whole thing, reboot and reinstall. Sometimes just doing that will remedy issues.. along with frequent cache and data clearing.

    I hate Dolphin. Sorry. :eek: Moved on to Boat long ago and never had an issue since. :)

    With Dolphin in your settings you can customize what it clears when you close it. Cache, history and something else. And Or. I think all I clear is the cache.

    The only problem I have with Dolphin is every now and then it crashes and I lose whatever tiles I had open when I last closed it. (I tend to keep the same 4-5 open most of the time even closed out of the browser.)

    I've had the latest version for awhile. It is better but still crashed once I think.

    Not near as bad in that as the prior version though.

    I'd like to say that you are not the only one who has issues with Dolphin browser after updates. I really liked Dolphin mini, but it does not work at all on my Motion.

    I am also having issues after update. Freezes like you said and also sometimes when I try to click on where you type in url it highlights all but if I type it just adds the writing at the end doesn't start at beginning
