K1 and Browser Shutdowns

2011-12-20, 16:24 PM

I have a K1. I love it.  All up to date on updates. My browser just randomly shuts down. I can be anywhere, amazon, google, any site, and it just goes back to the home screen. I reopen the browser and its it back to the homepage. It happens 1 minute after using a site or an hour. Totally random.

 

I would love to get this fixed. It has something to do with Android.  I installed Firefox for the time being and no shut downs but I hate Firefox.

 

My frustrations reached a peak while placing an order on Amazon this AM.  Ready to go and blip, it went out.

 

If anyone can help, please do.

 

I have 3.2.1

 

Thanks,

 

Norm

Are you sure you are not accidently touching the physical home button while you are holding it?  That's what I was doing at first and thought sometihing was wrong with mine too.

I do not use the home button but you are right, that could possibly be the issue . Good point. Maybe the home button is too sensitive.  I will see if it is the case. Where it does not happen on any other apps, orbrowsing with firefox, I think not.

 

If I did touch it, wouldn't all my tabs still be open when I reopen the browser? They are all closed when I reopen it.

 

Thanks,

 

Norm

what browser are you using?  I started out using the stock browser, crashes.   Went to Dolphin Browser was great for a week or so but last couple days its been crashing quite a bit.  FireFox works but also crashes, not as much though. Adobe Flash auto updated around that time so i'm thinking its that.

Try powering the tablet off completely by holding the power button then touching the power off button

This worked for me when my browswer started crashing randomly
