    I have tried to set the homepage on my browser by using the "use current page" option and by directly entering the web address. Either way, when I restart the browser, it opens to "blank" page. I am using the stock browser on my Samsung Galaxy S3. Anyone else have an issue setting the homepage? Any suggestions? I have a bookmark for the homepage that I want, but it's annoying to have the phone not work correctly. Thanks for any suggestions!

    I have tried that several times. Under set homepage it gives the options to use current, blank page, default or other. Using default will set the homepage at Google, so it works. No luck using any other page. If I set any other page, I get a blank page. Not a big problem, just annoying. Thanks for the response.

    I know how to set it but it is no longer working.
    Maybe the Android/Google partnership is to blame because
    I *have* set it in the past on one droid but cannot change it.
    Have recently bought three almost identical droids and cannot set it on them (unless I specify google.com).
    All four of my droids are Galaxy Note GT-N7000's
    (yes I realise this thread is for the S3 but the issue is identical).
    They are all running JellyBean 4.1.2 but slightly different builds.

    Hopefully it really is a problem at Google HQ or NSA or Mordor and it starts working again soon "by itself".

    Open a new tab.
    Set that one to Google.
    Close the original tab which will leave just the Google tab open.
    It sorted out for me!

    Set the home page as you described. Open a new tab and it should open with your new home page. Then close the page that keeps opening for you. Close the browser and open it back up. You should have your desired home page. If not go into settings and clear cache and data (you will lose all of your bookmarks). Then do it again and it should take.
