    Has anyone else experienced the Browser no longer working after ICS. When i say not working i mean, click on the world app and the screen goes white then blacks out and then returns to home screen. Other browsers work fine, but i prefered the stock browser.

    Anyone managed to fix it?

    I also have exactly the same problem. Using an orange sim in a sim free galaxy s2.
    Any advice welcome.

    Try Chrome beta, it's the best browser. AS for the stock browser, try to clear data and clear cache from the app manager window.

    Hey Forbie, thanks for the advice! I had exactly the same problem and clearing all app data fixed it for me. :D

    I was about to say the same thing about clearing cache/data. Also, I tried Chrome, but it had some issues on some pages that cause it to lock up. I'll try it again later, but I'm extremely happy with Samsung's updated browser. Like Chrome, it syncs with your Google account, so I get my bookmarks shared across platforms (although I don't think it opens active windows like Chrome does). They even finally added an exit button, sort of. Just go to tabs/pages and close the last one, and it will close the browser.

    However, I do have some issues with the stock browser. First, no home button. Second, they still have a separate brightness control, which is beyond stupid. At least give us the option to lock it to system brightness!

    I got it to work by backing up all my apps and data then doing a reset. This not only sorted out the stock browser, but also my bookmark apps and a few other niggles.

    Now i just need to figure out why the slide lockscreen has a padlock and 4 directions arrows when you long press. It would have been nice if they added 4 apps you could go straight too from the lockscreen.

    It is always recommended to do a reset after ROM changes, I have advised this countless times, but most think of it as just a hassle.

    The lockscreen swipe looks different as now you can swipe in any direction to unlock, and not just linearly. It's a universal ICS upgrade.

    Certain lockscreen apps do allow you to add widgets or launch 4 or more apps straight from the lockscreen.

    Ya Chrome on android is still in beta and has few bugs (as expected). Hope they fix it soon.
