    Hi folks

    I've had my GS3 for a month, and have been pretty happy with it.

    Last week, whenever I started up the browser (out-the-box, have not changed anything I am aware of) it started constantly looping. I could not type anything in the search criteria, tho' I can occasionally get to the address bar and get to another site - at which point there is no probpem.

    Any idea why the Google search page makes things behave this way?

    I have restarted the phone - did not help.

    Also, how do you change the homepage in the default browser? If I could do that, it would be a slight improvement!

    Thanks!

    I have yet to figure it out and I'm on a galaxy note. It must be a Google thing I would think.

    So there is no shortcut to go to the homepage in the browser? I want to go to back the home page after I finish looking at another page.
