    Welcome to Android Central! Are you certain you're tapping the "-" precisely? If it's really finicky, it might think you're tapping outside of the "-" symbol, and therefore think you're trying to add a tab. Try tapping it with a stylus.

    I've used the stylus as well and it doesn't close. Now I have 10 open pages. Please help.

    Mine does the same. I can only use the most recent tab. Also, I can't make bookmarks! Chrome is acting the same way. I'm going crazy!

    Go to settings in Chrome turn off combine tabs, it will restart chrome and you should be able to tap on the number box and swipe away the tab.

    Thanks, itguyjax8430. That took care of the tabs problem in Chrome, but I still can't find any bookmarks that I make.

    Any little bit helps, so thank you, again.

    You might need go in to the chrome settings to turn off home page mode as well. Once you do that you should have two options at the bottom of Chrome when you open it.

    I've performed the steps recommended in this forum, but they didn't help. The problem is not with my Chrome browser, but with the browser that comes with the phone. Any other suggestions?

    Hope you had a good vacation. I'm still learning this site, so I may have posted this in another area, but I've tried all the suggestions posted on this forum and they haven't helped. The problem is not with my Chrome browser, but with the browser that comes with the phone, the one that is labeled "Internet." Any other suggestions?

    I had the same problem. Go to settings > developer options> uncheck 'allow mock locations'. That worked on my galaxy s5. Hope that helps!

    I turned off Developer Options, and presto!, the tabs in the native browser work again. Thanks!

    I do not have a Merge tabs and apps option in settings.

    What do I do?

    Thanks in advance.

    I also do not have developer options.

    Welcome to Android Central! They recently removed the Merge Tabs and Apps option from Chrome.

    To get Developer Options, go to Settings>About Phone​, and tap Build Number 7 times.

    B. Diddy,

    Thanks so much. It worked.

    I'm reminded of Gandalf's attempt to get into the west gate of Moria when reading your instructions. It's a return to secret handshakes and code words.

    Regards,

    Jack
