    Exclamation Browser not working on Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

    Hi, Guys

    iOS to Android user here.

    I just got my Tab 10.1 a week ago and twice now the browser stopped working. the first thing that happened was that the keyboard would not pop up when I wanted to do a search or enter a URL.

    I didn't have anything installed on the tablet so I didn't mind resetting it to factory default.

    two days later, its not working again but with a new problem. when I do a search for images, I get all the images as I normally would but when I tap on the next page., NO images are loaded.

    I did a Google search to see if others are having this problem and apparently they are.

    in addition, I wanted to know if I could uninstall the default browser and reinstall it but I have found nothing.

    any help with this?

    Root and ROM.... if you can

    Seriously, if you have issues with it, I would return it.

    Otherwise, come to the dark side........

    Thanks for getting back to me.

    Ive heard of rooting and I suppose its the same thing as when I jailbreak my iphone. I'll do some reading and watch some youtube videos on how-to before I do it., thanks for your help, hope this fixes the problem.

    You can't uninstall the browser, however you can clear its cachr/data. It's like doing a factory reset but only for the browser:

    Settings -> applications -> manage applications -> all applications -> browser

    And then click on clear cache or clear data (maybe try cache first and see if that helps, if not then try data).

    I had a similar problem on my Optimus Pad when I first got it, it was caused by one of the options. I think the automatic Google login, although now a few days later I re-enabled autologin and it works fine. Weird huh.


    Ps : just my own personal opinion here, for me "root and rom" should never be a solution, but for fun or trying something else or bringing functionality not originally included. If I need to root and rom to make the device just work, it means the device was faulty to begin with and not worth it...

    I like to tinker, I just don't want to HAVE to tinker to get anything done. I tinker enough at my job as it is...lol
