HTC Desire :: How To Fix Internet Explorer Force Close On Desire?
Aug 3, 2010
i just got my desire afew days ago, i installed dolphin browser which i love but each time i visit a site i normally go on, it keeps on force closing down. its like a pop up that tells me internet explorer etc needs to close. now i have the update 2.1 which came with the phone but is their a way of fixing this issue? quite annoying.
I am running the OTA version of Froyo on my non-rooted Desire and I am finding that the HTC Sense UI seems to force close about once a week. The main culprit seems to be the HTC News widget as it most often seems to occur whilst I am reading my news each morning.Anyone else experienced this or know the solution?
I'm on orange, and I've just updated from 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11 then to 18.104.22.168 (2.2 - froyo). After updating I've been getting quite a few process.android.acore force close messages. This error message was coming up during anything and everything I was doing. So I've done a factory reset, but after that, I'm still getting the messages. Maybe not so frequently but still getting them.
This is my first post but have been reading the forum since I got my desire 3 weeks ago.... love it so far, but I have just come across a problem, When I go into settings followed by "manage applications" I get an error that a process has failed, and then I can only quit using the force close button. I have tried restarting the phone and no new apps have been put on recently. Does anyone know what I can do to be able use the app manager again?
I have had a desire for a couple of months now and have recently been getting an error with the gmail app. Whenever I open it and scroll down it comes up with "Loading conversations ...." then it pops up the force close error "The process com.google.process.gapps has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again". It then closes the Gmail app.I have tried to the factory reset option and clearing the gmail app cache but this does not rectify this error. Short of sending the phone back to Vodafone or HTC I am stuck.
What apps can we force close to optimize battery and processor? Can we force close these running apps?
I currently have and thinking of ending: Astro - I have this on a folder, must this always stay running? Bluetooth share - when Bluetooth is Off, can this be ended? Facebook - used when connected with wifi, can this be ended when not connected/wifi or when not using? Facebook for HTC Sense - used when connected with wifi, can this be ended when not connected/wifi? widget not used Flickr - not used (maybe when connected with wifi) FM Radio - not using but app running Footprints - widget not used, not using but app is running Friend Stream - not using but app running, widget not used LED Light - widget used Peep - not using but app running Photoshop.com mobile - on a folder, can this be ended when not used? YouTube - widget used
I'm not using an app to end these, just the Settings/Applications/Manage applications.
Facebook is a huge application, as such I've had it installed in /system for a while now, however last night I decided I would upgrade to Facebook 2.0, when moving it to system the app force closes upon start.
I've tried totally uninstalling/reinstalling it, clearing data/cache/dalvik to no avail, any pointers? or is this simply how it is now?
Just did the OTA froyo update from O2 last night. All appeared to go well and successful, past the point where I heard other people's got stuck.But when I slide down the slider and put in my password, it gets stuck in a force close loop for com.htc.launcher. Seems to not be able to open sense and keeps looping round.I saw a post from someone saying they had that problem, but then they just hit the search button and got the quicksearch, went to settings, then cleared the data for the appropriate application and then it worked fine.But when I hit the search button, nothing happens. If I hold it down, I get the google voice search, but I can't seem to get to settings from there.Does anyone know another method to get into settings as I'm hopeful this will fix my problem as suggested by some others. I'd much rather that than take it back to O2.
On both 2.1 & 2.2 I have found that occasionally the browser progress bar will only get 90% before becoming getting stuck. You can try as many times as you like to view the page but it will always get stuck.The only way I have found to cure this is to force stop the internet app, then everything is fine again. Anyone else seen this or know how to stop it occurring?
Anyone know of a "process explorer" app for android that would show what processes are maxing out the processor.I'm seeing intermittent sluggishnes while scrolling or opening new apps tbut haven't been able to work out which app is causing it.
I can install and run HTC Sync on my laptop okay. I can even sync my Desire no problem. Trouble is, while I have HTC Sync on my laptop, Windows Explorer will not work. It shuts down and then tries unsuccessfully to restart. Doing a system restore to remove HTC Sync cures the problem. Anyone else having these problems? Any ideas how to fix it. I am running Windows 7 (32 bit).
Right basically you can find the UK T mobile internet settings on the T mobile website. On the Speed Test app, the highest speeds I get are 1.8m/bs downloads and around 500kpbs upload. However, those were at off peak times at night etc (probably when nobody is using the net).Generally I get anything from 0.3 m/bs to 0.9 m/bs though. Lately I've been experiencing some inconsistent internet speeds and reconnection attempts so for I've gone back to the default settings. Tbh though I'm not sure if it makes much difference.
I have a Desire and I'm trying to transfer MP3s and video across in Windows Explorer. However I can only seem to get around 100MB of files across then I get the error message:
Cannot read from the source file or disk
I'm using a 16Gb card that worked fine in my G1. Windows reports that there is over 14Gb free. I've tried formatting the card via the phone and using other software to transfer the files eg Doubletwist but I still get the same problems.
Is there someone that could answer a few question about estrongs file explorer.
1) When an app is restored/backed up using estrongs does it also restore/backup all of the user settings for the said app? 2) After a factory reset or firmware update can you restore all apps and settings that have been backed up? 3) Can you select more than one app at a time to backup/restore. 4) Do the backed up apps that where originaly installed from the market still show up in the market as installed after a restore? 5) Can estrongs backup/restore app and phone settings such as gmail & email accounts, cantacts, calendars, phone settings, etc?
I just picked up my Moto Droid and may have to return it since my email system is a hosted online system and requires Intellesync and Windows Explorer!Please someone, tell me there is a way to install Windows IE on the droid!
So I want to get the wife the Transformer Prime for her work, BUT they have a site that they MUST use that is Internet Explorer only. I've looked around a bit, but it seems nothing is available, but most of those threads weren't this specific and they all seemed to be pretty old. are there any options that will allow her to get to this site or should I just scrap the whole idea until her company moves into the current technological age?
Just got my Desire and I am so happy to see how much faster it is compare with the Legend, and I specially like the addition of the wifi hotspot this is really a must have app nowadays. I give the phone 4 out of 5 stars, due to un-closeable apps and unable to attach a hand strap this is really stupid design.I find some apps can't be closed even with task manager, one of them is the build in FM radio, it won't close even when I unplug the earphone, there is indeed a shutdown button on the app, but click on it has no function, if I force it close with task manager another instance of it will start instead. There are many apps auto start by default with no reason, I use task manager to shut them down to save the resources. IMHO, by the time Android has become stable the Desire will be retired and excluded from the update
My home security system allows me to view the cameras from a browser. But, it only works from an internet explorer browser. (Even on my pc, I have to use IE for this, it won't work with fire fox or chrome). None of the ip camera apps available so far work with my q-see camera system. Is there any way to "emulate" internet explorer on the android?. I don't anticipate microsoft will be making an android-version anytime soon.
i wanna access websites which are internet explorer specific sites, they don't open correctly in firefox, chrome, safari, opera or any other browser,and i don't want just to change User Agent to desktop, it doesn't work. even on desktop pc those sites only work correctly on internet explorer.
so is there anything to access those sites?one example of those sites is my phone network's free sms sending website, which can only be accessed correctly from internet explorer, so i can't send sms through my mobile from that site, i need to use internet explorer on my pc
Does anyone else have this issue?When I go in for a close up shot, say 20cms away, the camera focuses fine, turns green, makes a beep them shoots. All fine but when you see the preview or even go into the gallery to view the picture it is out of focus.Sometimes i have to pull back a good 50cms before it will record a focused shot. Is this the macro distance for the DHD?I know it doesn't have stabilization so I've tried this with it mounted and on timer. Still does it. But once I pull back away it behaves as it should.Hope this makes sense. Am I doing something wrong? Is there something in the settings that will eliminate this?
Is it possible to force a 3G signal somehow? I know that you can force GSM and WCDMA. 3G and HSPDA are both the later. My phone constantly tries for a H signal and usually it is pretty poor, I am sure 3G would be better.
I'm using the stock keyboard which works just fine pretty much all the time....it's just Facebook that seems to be giving me grief. Since the Android FB app is rubbish, I now use my web browser to fully browse FB (using Dolphin HD and full web view...not mobile view). When I click on the field to post a new comment on someone's page, the keyboard doesn't appear. The field will highlight green and the cursor will blink in the empty field but no keyboard. This is the only place I have found that the keyboard misbehaves. Replies to comments work fine. Is there an obvious way that I may be missing to force the keyboard open?
Just got an HTC Desire through O2 in the UK as an upgrade to my old SE P1i. Happy with it so far, still going through it trying to turn off and disable loads of stuff though. Here's some initial questions:
1) I got the Force Close Button program from the marketplace. Should I be using that to close programs to save battery life? Or should I just leave everything running in the background? Camera, web browser, email, calendar and whatever else I've ever used since I last cycled the power. 2) Is there a particular Task Manager program I should look at? I've got ES File Manager and notice they do a Task Manager as well but didn't know if there's any others that people recommend. 3) Is there a way to disable the SMS threaded/conversation view in the stock SMS program? 4) And to supress the deletion prompt in SMS?...........
