    I haven't heard anything about this problem before. Try using AdvancedTaskKiller and kill the Web Browser and try running the browser again.

    I found that even after a reset of the browser, it still crashes after a dozen or so page loads. I noticed that when it does crash, and I launch the Internet browser, it seems to always take me back to the page where it crashed on a previous attempt (not always google, but also reddit.com and others). It became so annoying to the point where I switched to Opera. Works much better.

    I have every browser I can find installed. Why not?! Here's my current ranking:

    1) Dolphin HD
    2) Dolphin
    3) xscope

    And here's something that might help you:

    Besides that, I think what's happening is that the OS is killing the browser process and it has to bootstrap itself when you switch back. I wonder if it is actually hitting the server or just grabbing a locally cached copy and rendering that. I'll try to figure that out.

    Anway, I don't often see this issue. I use dolphin HD and I'm picky about what runs in the background. I pretty much use no widgets or other stuff that runs on boot. Theoretically, this leaves resources free so your browser can stay open.

    Update: OK, just used dolphin hd to go to a page with a time stamp, went app drawer, opened google earth and played around a bit, went back to dolphin and the page was gone. After a couple seconds, the page came back...same old time stamp. This is good news as the page isn't reloading from the server, just re-rendering from local storage.

    I noticed the same thing. If I open the browser and select a bookmark that navigates away from Google.com, it's fine. The issue that I'm experiencing does seem to relate to Google.com in particular. I would love a fix for this...

    I side-stepped the issue by downloading Opera for the Droid, but I prefer the stock browser.

    I've been noticing the exact same thing lately, my browser just frequently closes for no apparent reason - not even a force close. It does seem to happen more often during google searches, but also just on random pages too. I haven't seen many posts about it so I guess it's not that common, but it's really annoying. I guess I should try some other browsers out, but I've always been partial to the stock one so I'd rather try to fix the issue. Any other suggestions?

    Btw, I'm currently running UD 8.0 with Chevy's 1 Ghz LV kernel. I've used the same kernel for a long time but just switched over to the ROM not long ago. Maybe that's the cause of the problem? Anyone else running this ROM who's getting this problem? I really like the ROM so if I can't fix it, I guess I'll have to find a new browser till the next version comes out (hopefully soon!).

    My Windows Media Center does that!!

    Haven't had it happen with my droid browser though.

    Unhappy All browsers crash

    I have had this problem with the stock browser for 3 months now. A specific website causes this (my work website). But it can be ANY website that causes the crash, but one pre-requisite seems to be that its the one i visit most frequently. Several times in a day. Maybe 50 or more times. I can navigate to ANY other URL, but not the one that causes the crash.

    Have tried returning the phone to Verizon where they did a complete reset of the phone. After initial power on from reset, went to browser and it crashed again. Then spoke to Tech (level 2) at Verizon who couldn't figure it out either.

    I've tried about everything you can think of to clear this... reset phone, cache, browser, remove apps, reboot phone, remove battery, and tens of suggestions from other users.

    I have Fennec, Dolphin, and Opera installed on phone too.They work when the stock browser isn't but after a period of use, they crash too!!!!!!! Same way as the stock browser, just goes back to the home screen when trying to access a specific web site.

    Even more wierd is that the browsers will just start functioning again , for NO REASON, no reboot, no cache clear, nothing. Just starts working. All browsers react the same way.
    Other users at my work experience the same problem too.
    Very frustrating.

    Anyone find a fix?! Had this problem on my droid and figured it was just because of android needing more memory. Tell that to my htc thunderbolt, which has 768mb RAM and is having the exact same problem
