    I've been researching this and trying to help the OP and the problem is widespread, but it only seems to be happening with the stock browser and with Dolphin browser ... not with Google Chrome ...
    So MattyP how do you get all the ladies??

    Yea like i said i've tried clearing history, cache, passowrd, turning phone off, then on.
    turning data off, on. but still nothing

    If i use the following, it works
    stock browser with incognito mode
    stock browser signed out of google
    Chrome

    It only doesnt work when im on goole and signed in.

    You mentioned this is widespread, i haven't heard too much, do you know whats happening?

    This is kinda crazy but what if you set your home page to https://www.google.com/search?q=+

    Not very pretty, I guess. Another idea: http://www.blackle.com/ or http://www.blackl.com/black-google.php

    I took part after reading this and basically changed my homepage to Google.com. seems to have done the trick so far

    I thought that the problem was Google.com set as home page in the first place.
    Did you know that most Android web browsers spy on you? Not only is it a violation of privacy, it wastes battery power, bandwidth, and slows your device. Check out a free, ad-less, full-featured, fast browser that does not spy or monitor in anyway: Naked Browser in the Google Play Store. I made Naked Browser in response to the privacy violations of apps like Dolphin, Boat, Ninesky, Miren, and others. Naked Browser is a not for profit app.

    I have the same problem! Samsung Galaxy S3 + Dolphin HD

    It started two days ago when going to the Google Mobile homepage, it just keep constantly refreshing and seem to sign in and out. The solution is to turn the phone in Portrait position, quickly scroll down to click Classic and sign out. After that, go back to the mobile page and par-tay like its 1999!

    No one know the cause of this and who is at fault, Google or Dolphin.

    But that doesnt solve anytihng but only bypasses the issue.technically you can do the following to stop it from refreshing
    - Go to classic mode
    - Go incognito
    - Use chrome
    - If u enter google image search signed in, it wont refresh either
    - sign out
    - dont set ur home page to google

    theres tons of bypasses, but which none are solutions.
