    Mine recently started doing this also and it is frequent.... And now the latest update messed up my individual ringtones which I rely on to know who is calling without looking at the screen. The Phone also lags. I hate to admit it but I think this phone has been a disappointment
    My phone went to crap shortly after the update where it would lag, it would take 20-30 seconds for the messaging app or contacts app to load, it wouldn't auto search filling in the "To:"field, etc.

    I did a factory reset and everything is back to normal now. It's kind of a pain to get your homescreens re-setup and all the apps back the way I like them, but the phone is back to being usable again. Might want to give that a shot.

    The issue of the browser force closing is not limited to the HTC evo 4G lte. It is also not limited to the stock browser. There are similar threads to this in many different device forums and across lots of different browsers. I'm having this same problem on my tablet as well which is where another big thread about this issue is. It seems like an android or flash problem.

    I have been having the same problem. Spoke with Sprint went through diagnosis and troubleshooting. They advised replacing. Took the phone back to Best Buy since it is still within the 30 day return window. Got a brand new one straight out of the box, same issue. I called Sprint back and was able to get them to recreate the issue in their advanced tech support. Sprint got HTC invloved, said this is the first they have heard about the issue. Both escalated tickets, call backs for 24-48 hours. Keep you posted......

    For what its worth "First we have heard of this problem" are famous lines from Sprint tech support:-) I'm sure they are getting a ton of calls on this.

    Maybe google is pushing users to use google chrome so they get use to a no flash support browser when the jelly bean updates arrives.

    Yea the sprint reps are usually either lying when it comes to problems and there fix is always replacing new phone which pissed me off. That doesn't solve anything. Either that or there plainly just stupid. This problem is really starting to annoy the sh** out of me. I can't read any news articles or ant website for that matter

    Since the problem started I have been using the Dolphin Browser. I figured it would be a temporary thing until they had a fix for the stock browser. Well, after using Dolphin for about a week now I can honestly say I may not go back to the stock browser even when it is fixed. Dolphin is faster, supports flash and has a very easy to use and clean layout.

    On xda one of the devs looked into the issue because he thought it was a Rom issue but when he looked at his logcat he says that its a java error on certain websites that you would visit.

    I think it is flash related.... Although so far chrome has worked fine.

    Ive had this problem for a while as well, and switched to dolphin to avoid it.

    Based on the above info I disabled javascript in settings/advanced for the stock browser and it seems to have taken care of the problem. I have visited a few sites from bookmarks and so far so good. I havnt tested this very long so too early to really tell, FWIW if turning off javascript doesnt work, there is also option to turn of flash as well.

    I have tried turning off Java and Flash. I thought this did the trick and then, BOOM! It did it again...

    My problem is still clear and have turned JavaScript back on.

    FWIW last night my son was playing mc3 and depleted the battery, maybe even overheated it. Screen went black, notification led flashing with menu buttons lit. Phone wouldn't respond or restart even by holding down the power button through several attempts. It did finally restart after charging for a while. I wonder if that discharge event created a 'deeper' ( for lack of a better term) battery pull. While I still had the problem prior to that, I didn't check this morning before I tried disabling JavaScript. Maybe it was that discharge that did it.

    Mine started doing that more frequently after the latest update. It only closes on the stock browser but not chrome(which should b the stock browser imo on 4.0+ devices) or maxton. Weird.

    The title says it all. My browser keeps closing and reverting to phone's home screen. I have had the phone for about 6 weeks and software is up to date. The problem just started yesterday. Doesn't seem to be any particular web pages that make it happen. Any thoughts?
    Mine does this also (LG Optimus). But also does it while playing games. Super frustrating and I've tried everything. No force close, though those happen a lot as well.
