I'd like to set the homepage of the default browser on my Droid2 to a simple local HTML file. From what I've found this should be possible again, but I can't seem to get it to play nice with me. Is it possible now (without too much monkeying around)? While I'm thinking of it: are the brower's bookmarks saved as a webpage? That might make things more convenient.
I saved two websites to bookmarks, or so the Razr HD said so. I opened the widget that says bookmarks and can't find them there. Where did they go? All I want to do is save these websites to my home screen. Is there an easier way than bookmarking it in a widget then moving that widget to the home screen?
Does anyone know why all my SMS and MMS messages disappeared? Or has anyone seen this before? Or maybe how I can get them back? I didn't delete any of them, and my settings are set to never automatically delete. I wasn't even doing anything with my phone when it happened.
Running a a droid with the stock 2.2. Sat night they all disappeared as did any call history. Tried importing from SD card and they would not sync. When I try the names flash with a progress bar saying that its syncing... but they never show up in my contacts list. Also tried importing from my gmail account and that was useless too.
Newbie here, so be gentle. I tried to remove a single bookmark by dragging it down the screen only to remove all the bookmarks entirely. Now if I try to set up a new bookmark i have no idea where it has gone because that "bookmarK' screen is completely empty.
Somehow I am missing the really nice music widget that shows the album graphics. Not sure where I lost it, but I want it back! I installe several things (pancake, and 2.1 icons (which I got rid of)) but the music widget is gone... all that's left is a minimal music widget.
I have a UK Motorola Milestone running Android 2.1-update 1. Yesterday all my contacts and my google accounts, to which they were synchronised, disappeared. Just like that, out of the blue.
I tried to add the google account again, but I keep getting a "can't establish reliable data connection" error. It is not a network access issue because internet and email (imap, not gmail) work fine, plus I tried with two different SIMs and with Wi-Fi, but to no avail.
I read about people deleting some files from their rooted Android and/or hard resetting their phones, but these fixes don't seem to always work and I'd rather try something else first.
I must say that, even though I like Android, I am getting very annoyed at how unreliable and buggy it has proven compared to my iphone and blackberry. Is it too much to ask to have a phone that doesn't reboot every other minute and that doesn't delete your contacts?
Recently replaced the HTC Sense launcher with ADW launcher, which I highly recommend! However the HTC mobile data widget has now disappeared and I can't seem to find it. Anyone know how to get it back or a good replacement?
I just went through the hassle of factory resetting to see if it will help my post-froyo battery drain. The one thing I could not figure out was how to back-up/restore my internet bookmarks. Does anyone know how to do this? Not mentioned in the manual or froyo guide.
Anyone else have the problem of their bookmarks in the stock browser reverting back to the default ones? Twice in the last week I have lost all of my bookmarks on a phone power off and back on - I did not go in and clear any data or cache in the browser.
Just installed the latest update to LPP with the swipe gestures. Its brilliant, it really is. My question is simple really, and I'm sure Ive read a solution somewhere before, but here goes... On the bookmarks swipe gesture, which brings up your bookmarks, how do I make my Dolphin HD bookmarks show, instead of the generic browsers??? In other words, can I import bookmarks from Dolphin to the LPP bookmarks?
Looks like the bookmarks within the Bookmarks Widget are posted in the order that you surf and are NOT subject to any type of sorting. However the bookmarks within the Bookmarks Application launched from the browser's menu are sortable. Is there any way to make these two independent bookmarks list sync with one another. I know there's an application out there to manually sort the widget's bookmarks but I want them sync and match.
This is my first android device and i'm loving it... but one thing that irks me is the use, or lack thereof, of the back button.
As I am navigating menus and options in the Settings, I cannot simply go back one menu using the back key. For example, if I go to Settings->Battery Manager->Battery Profile Options and want to go back to the Settings screen, I cannot.
Pushing the back button does nothing and I can only go back to the Settings menu by going Home, then re-entering.
Another quirk regarding the back button is when reading emails. Using a regular email account such as Hotmail, I cannot simply read an email and go back to the inbox using the button.
