Stock broswer crashing in 2.2
I have searched the forums and don't see anyone else with this problem so I thought I'd post this before doing a factory reset.
Since forcing the update to 2.2, my browser has been crashing. Sometimes it will be on certain sites, but most often it happens when I try to do a search with the search button on the bottom right. I will begin to type in my search and the browser will disappear and I'm back to my home screen. It happened when I first got 2.2 and I did a few battery pulls and it seemed to go away. Just yesterday it came back.
I have since gone to DolphinHD and while it also crashed once, it seems more stable.
Anyone else have this experience and/or a fix?

After looking into it further, it doesn't crash just in the browser. If I pull up either the search from the search button (bottom right) or if I use the search box widget, it will crash as soon as I put in any letter from the keyboard. It happens with the virtual or the physical keyboard. As soon as it begins to poll the system for apps that begin with the letter or contacts, it will crash.
Workaround for search crash
I found that if you disable the setting for "Show web suggestions" this no longer happens (Settings/Search/Google Search/Show web suggestions). No clue why it's happening and it doesn't seem to be happening to anyone else.

My browser was acting wonky a couple days ago; pinch zoom kept making the page zoom in/out continuously, when rendering a page the window will black out á là FC but then pop back up. I uninstalled Flash thinking that could have something to do with all this as well...no such luck. I'm wondering if this is grounds for a warranty replacement.
