    Bionic is rooted and everything is working fine with one exception....the share button in the browser is no longer doing anything when I click on it. I can still hit the menu button and "share page" works just fine but the button at the end of the address bar does not. I'm sure it's something simple that I am overlooking.

    Thanks

    Bill

    the share button corresponds to your Social Media logins - I only have twitter, FB and Linked In, and that is all it is showing me.

    I'm not sure if it will work if you manually install the respective apps.

    :eek: I thought it acted the same way that it does when you are looking at a picture, which allows me to share quickly to my WhatsApp contacts/groups. So with all my social stuff frozen, which I don't use, the button doesn't do anything.

    Thanks again for the insight.

    I noticed the same behavior, must have been from freezing one of the social apps, I'll have to see if I can track down which.

    [EDIT] Found it, Social Status - of course I just froze it again since I'm not going to use the social networking apps from Moto and that's all the share button links with anyway.

    I'll definitely use it - sharing links with ppl on FB, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. - yeah, definitely way easier than before.
