    Really odd one this. It closes if I type a capital A. Nothing else. All other letters are fine.

    The application Internet (process com.android.browser) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.

    I have factory reset, uninstalled everything, still the same. If I clear the cookies, cache, etc, and remove my homepage of google.co.uk, it seems fine. The T-Mobile default homepage works fine if I type a capital A. If I set Google.co.uk, and type a capital A, it force closes.

    Hmm....and after a bit of digging....it only seems to do it on Google Mobile sites. Classic Google.com and .co.uk are fine. Google force loses, as does .com/m.

    Anyone have the same issue, or know whats causing this? :thinking:

    Nobody then! :(
    Still an issue, have had to simply stop using Google. Not the best workaround, sure, but the only one i'm stuck with.

    Are you using a task killer?

    If so, have you whitelisted the core apps?

    Yep, I use Advanced Task Killer. What's whitelisting?

    Regardless, I have just uninstalled it, rebooted, went to Google.com, clicked in the text bar, typed a capital A, and it force closed. So it's not that then.

    I did a factory reset, and it's still doing it. All my dl'd apps have been removed, still the same. GGRR!

    Very odd... I just tried typing a capital A in my browser and no issue.

    Have no idea i'm afraid, and not something I have heard about before.

    It only force closes after typing a capital A on google.com or .co.uk classic, or mobile. Can you try one of those?!

    Failing formatting my SD card, I'm out of ideas. But I just factory reset and didn't apply my back up, and the problem was still there, so I'm not even sure that would make any difference. *shrug*

    Just tried typing capital A on both google.com .co.uk and the mobile version. Typed into both the URL bar and the search box... nothing happened. Sorry.

    Send HTC support an e-mail. They normally respond within hours.

    Have you loaded any custom keyboards?

    Is the Rom as it came, or have you flashed?

    No. I had Swype installed, but as I mentioned, I have factory reset and deleted everything. Not flashed.

    Strange thing is, I asked a friend who has a Desire to try the same test, and his browser force closed also...curiouser and curiouser. Will get in touch with HTC.

    Thanks for your help evryone. :)

    Hi there, I'm experiencing a similar problem with my browser and it happened after watching something on youtube. Not done the factory reset yet but was wondering if you had any response from HTC? I have a Desire too.

    Hope you can help!

    Cheers,
