    hi,

    i've been having a weird problem lately. whenever i open a webpage in the normal browser and click on a link, it opens up dolphin browser and opens the page in there. any idea why? I'd like to continue using the normal browser and dolphin just as a backup.

    thanks in advance.

    If at anytime you opted for Dolphin to be your default browser and or have not chose your stock browser to be the default browser; Dolphin (for what reason I'm not sure) assume the position. When this happened to me to resolve the problem I completely uninstalled Dolphin, powered down and removed the Battery for a few seconds. I than reinstalled Dolphin and the issue was over. Just make sure that the first time you open Dolphin uncheck the "make it the default browser"

    I experienced same thing with a different browser & here's what worked for me. Under
    Settings | Applications | Manage Applications
    tap Dolphin & in Launch by default section, tap Clear Defaults.

    If you long press the link it should give browser options and there should be a check box to choose default, if it really is that easy.

    Clear defaults works for any app set as default -- not just browsers.
