EDIT: So I stumbled on a solution for this problem. Long pressing the menu button while in the browser brings up the web address bar for editing.
I've had the S3 since it's AT&T release and one thing is just bugging the crap out of me. On my Skyrocket I could bring up the web address bar in the native browser by pressing the menu button whenever it disappeared. On my S3, however, I cannot bring up the web address bar unless I scroll all the way to the top of the page. This gets tedious and annoying, especially if I'm at the bottom of a really long page.
Is there a setting, or another trick that will get the address bar to appear? TIA
When I'm reading something it hides away but as soon as I scroll down or tap the screen it pops up at the top... no need to scroll to the top...

That doesn't happen with mine, as soon as it disappears even scrolling on the page won't make it reappear. Even tapping on various areas of the screen doesn't make it show back up. I have to go to the top of the page.
I use Dolphin HD which I like a lot better than the built in browser. With Dolphin if you hit the menu button you get both the address bar and the bottom menu (Bookmarks, Forward, etc). Might want to give it a test drive.
