HTC Desire :: Default Browser Keeps Crashing

Jun 7, 2010

For some unapparent reason, my default internet browser keeps crashing.

It will load the Google mobile homepage (and if I change the homepage then it loads that too), but if I navigate to any page then it says I have to force close it. Also, if I try to clear history then this crashes it also.

I haven't installed any new programs so I'm really stuck here.

HTC Desire :: BBC News Pages W/Flash Crashing Browser

Aug 29, 2010

Problem is, any page on the BBC News website containing a Flash movie crashes the stock browser . So, while this and this are OK. This, this and even the mobile help page crash the browser (links included for you to try ). No force close, the browser just vanishes and I get returns me to the phone home screen.

I've cleared the cache and cookies and even restarted the phone to no avail (and no, I'm not doing a hard reset ).

iPlayer pages are OK as is YouTube.

Is this a BBC problem? Is anyone else having the same issue or is it just me?

Running stock browser on LauncherPro on FroYo.

Motorola Droid :: Default Web Browser - When Click Links In Non-default Browser It Doesn't Send Links To Default One

Dec 15, 2009

I have installed Dolphin and like it, and I've made it my default browser, which is great. However, it is not only the system default, but it even opens links I click on in the Android provided browser (sometimes I both open). On your computer, when you click links in your non-default browser it doesn't send the links to the default one, and it shouldn't on this OS, either. Any ideas how to keep Dolphin as my system default browser, but not have it open links I click on in the Android web browser?

HTC Desire :: Default Browser Or Switch?

May 10, 2010

I really like the default browser with the HTC desire. It seems fast and intuitive, and above all I love the way it zooms - formatting text to fit the window, and especially the way it seems to 'snap' to the edges of tables - great for reading news sites where the content is sandwiched in between loads of junk.

But I've never used a different browser on a smartphone, and I wondered how others compared. It's not perfect - swtiching between windows is cumbersome and there doesn't seem to be tabs - which means that sometimes pages can be doing stuff in the background and you'll never even know. And the menus and controls aren't ideal - it's all there but it's annoying having to hit menu then more before you can hit the 'home' key.

So are there any other browsers that have the speed, perfect layout, and intuitive feel of the default browser but better controls and other features? Would appreciate some recommendations of others to try

HTC Desire :: How To Change Default Web Browser Application?

Aug 5, 2010

I downloaded opera mini and have it and the stock browser on my phone. When I got it, it asked what I wanted to use as default for internet. Well my bookmarks mainly and I chose the stock. Now, I'm in Nigeria and the internet isn't great on my phone, but I'm getting a 100Mb allowance today. I want to revert to Opera as my default cause it uses less Mb and I am here for a month so want to stay within my quota. Is there any way to do this?

HTC Desire :: Default Browser Stops - Crashes - Stalls When Using 3G

Apr 25, 2010

I am having a problem with the default browser on my HTC Desire where it will stop loading web pages (or not load them at all) even when I have a H connection or 3G connection. All other programs seem to be able to connect via h/3G fine i.e. Market, Opera Mini, GMail etc...

I tried this morning on the following sites:

Twitter
Latest news, comment and reviews from the Guardian | guardian.co.uk
Wikipedia

And none would open. The little green bar gets stuck about 3mm in. I have a H showing in the status bar. When I first loaded the browsed and went to HTC - Mobile Phones, Smartphones, Cell Phones, PDAs this worked fine. However, this has also stopped loading as I type. EDIT: ww.htc.com now working (3 minutes later), Google is working, but still none of the above mentioned sites..

I am in Manchester UK and am on 3. I have been on 3 for quite a few years and have never had a problem with connecting in Manchester. I don't think it is a carrier problem as I am able to connect to the internet with other programs as already mentioned. Also, all the above mentioned sites open fine when I use WiFi.

It was mentioned on the other thread that someone has informed 3UK of the problem and they have informed HTC, but if any other people are having the same problem please detail it here and inform your carrier and HTC.

General :: HTC Inspire With 2.3.5 - Android Browser Crashing

Apr 29, 2013

I have an HTC Inspire with Android 2.3.5. Last night my stock browser kept crashing on two particular Wikipedia pages. I cleared the cache and even went to Menu > Settings > Apps and cleared data for the browser (which also erased my bookmarks). It still crashed on those pages. Wouldn't you be surprised if you kept crashing on ordinary Wikipedia pages? No other pages crashed.

(1) I've read that anti-malware programs for Android are not very good - someone tested them and the free ones found only 10% of malware they should have found. Paid ones were slightly better. Are there any malware scanner apps that are good? I prefer ones that aren't always running.

(2) Are you supposed to update the stock browser? If so, how do you do it? It might be automatic.

(3) Do you think I should upgrade to a newer Android? When I went from 2.3.3. to 2.3.5, it took a long time and I didn't like some of the changes.

I can't get Chrome because you have to have Android 4.0 or later.Does your stock browser often crash for no apparent reason? I've had this phone for a year. Before, it only crashed on pages I rarely visited and were heavy in effects.

HTC Droid Eris :: Stock Browser Crashing - Screen Is Completely White

Jan 30, 2010

I have had my Eris for maybe 3 or 4 days and I absolutely love it. I have to thank all of you for the useful tips and tricks I have been reading.

I haven't had a problem until tonight.

I was using the stock browser on MySpace, finished what I was doing, logged out and used the back key to get back to the home screen, which I always do. I could never get back to the home screen, the farthest back it would take me was to the original MySpace login screen and I had to hit the home key to get back to the home screen.

When I now try to open the browser, it acts like it is loading, I see the status bar, which loads all the way, but other than that, the screen is completely white and stays that way - the whole screen is white and never does anything.

Could this have been caused by MySpace or maybe a browser issue that happened to occur while I was on MySpace?

I have cleared cache, cleared all data, rebooted a few times, force stopped it, killed it with advanced task manager and everything else I could think of.

Samsung Captivate :: Random Crashing Of Captivate Browser

Aug 28, 2010

My Captivate's browser will crash / shut down, upon attempting to launch a web page.

This occurs with random pages, it happens about once out 20 times I go to load any web page.

It does not happen on the all pages, just certain pages. (I've failed to note which pages so far) When it does happen, if I try to open that same web page again again, it crashes. If I immediately try another web page it's fine.

My Captivate is original, w/ver 2.1 Eclair, not rooted (yet) and otherwise operates very well. So far it's the only bug I've had.

HTC EVO 4G :: Default Browser And Skyfire

Jul 2, 2010

I prefer the style of build-in browser. It looks more neat to me. However, it sometimes has trouble bringing up flash player even on youtube. It also won't open the log in page when I am connected to college wireless. Moreover, it would struggle to open some websites like Oregon Coast- Travel Lane County(If you change the date and click search, nothing will happen.)Well, skyfire can solve all these problems. It always open any kind of videos for me as long as it's flash. When I connect to wireless that requires log-in on website, skyfire would pop up the site as soon as I open skyfire. The most important part is that it can open all the websites I need.I really love the feeling of built in browser but how come it sucks that badly? I installed skyfire since 6/4, and I barely use it since I really prefer the default browser. But now I really hope google or HTC can fix and improve the performance of the browser.

HTC EVO 4G :: Set A Default Browser For ALL Webpages?

Nov 23, 2010

I am familiar with Froyo 2.2 and the ability to set certain apps as "default" apps for certain functions, however, I am having a problem (or perhaps that is just the way it is???) with choosing a default browser. I am also familiar with clearing the default choices in the Application Manager.

So, in an email or through another app, I click on a link and get a popup to use either the default "Internet" browser or the "Dolphin" app that I have installed. I CHECK the checkbox to "use this as default" and then go off to my link.

Then say I go to another email with another link, I get the SAME POPUP to choose between the default browser or Dolphin.

I have done some research and tried, from within Dolphin itself, to set Dolphin as THE DEFAULT browser, however choosing that setting within Dolphin does NOT work either! I still get the popup whenever I follow a link.

QUESTION: is there a way to set my default browser choice for ALL MY WEBS LINKS?? It appears that whenever I click on a previously un-visited link in an email or an app, I get the popup asking me what browser to use.

I would like to set Dolphin to launch for ANY AND ALL LINKS I might click on in any app on my phone....is that possible?

HTC Hero :: Changing Default Browser?

Mar 22, 2010

I've been trying the Opera Mini 5 beta, and I'm loving it so far. Particularly the fact that it's so much faster than the standard browser.So, my question is... Is it possible to change the "default" browser?That is, in some apps I have the option of "viewing in browser", but these always take me to a page using the default browser. One such example is "NewsRob" with its "Browser" menu option when viewing an article.

HTC EVO 4G :: How To Change Default Browser To Dolphin HD?

Nov 16, 2010

So I just got the HTC Evo yesterday and I've just been playing around with it. I just downloaded the free version of HD Dolphin because I wanted to try it. The thing is I can't figure out how to use it or set it as my browser. I can't even find it on my applications, but it says that it's installed when I go to the Market. And I tried to go to Settings Applications. But then I couldn't find anything on changing the default settings.
