    From time to time my browser will completely stop working. Wont load anything over 3g or wifi. Dolphin works fine so I know its not a service issue.

    I have to power cycle and then it works. Just had to do this 5 minutes ago. As far as I can tell there is no way to FC the browser but maybe someone knows something I don't. Surely I can't be the only one with this browser issue.

    From the Manage Apps tab in Settings there is a Force Stop button.
