    internet browser

    Why does my browser always open up on the previous page I was on? I want it to close and open back up on Google.

    Re: internet browser

    I'm gonna guess it's because you press the Home button when you exit the browser?

    If you want it to open to Google. You'll need to close all tabs & windows when you exit the browser. And have your home page default to Google. That's how I do it

    I'm hitting the back button. The little arrow. At the bottom right.

    As long as you back all the way out to Google, it should open to Google the next time

    This is what I get every time I open my browser. I even have my homepage set to Google.

    Try Chrome..... I find it much better than the stock browser..... Although I have a MOD on my phone so all I have to do is long press the back button and it kills the app.... You can also Long press the HOME button go into task manager and kill the browser app... then it should always load to your default home page....

    Close All leaves Blank Page open

    Multi window icon upper right...add new page (+)...should show as the home page you designated...than delete the blank page and all other pages (-) except the new one u just added. Then when you exit and return your home page should appear...

    For some reason Close All causes browser to start with a blank page or..the last sessions first broswer page .

    I had the same problem. very aggravating. I guess my phone did an upgrade and it disabled sync. enable sync (settings=>data usage=>menu button=>settings). then go to settings on your Google account and sync internet ( home screen=>menu button=>accounts,google). fixed my problem...
