    Default "looping" reload of Default homepage (Google)

    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!

    Mine is doing the same thing. I hit classic view and back to mobile view and it will stop for a little while then start again...

    Homepage is the default web page the browser will go to with no tabs open

    No idea bro but your address bar uses Google search so why have to go to google.com anyway?

    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.
