Hello,

As almost everyone, I updated to Froyo last night. I was running stock Eclair with no modifications of any kind (rooting), only apps installed through the Android Marketplace.

I successfully updated by copying the update.zip file to my memory card.

I did not experience the SD card issue where some users had to copy their contents to a computer, reformat, and copy back.

I did experience the calendar issue where my Google calendar was not downloading to my phone; but after reading other threads I found out that clearing the Calendar Storage data fixed this.

Now, besides a small issue with caller ID pictures that I will not bore you with, I am having what I consider a kind of major issue with the stock browser.

My internet browser force closes every time I try to scroll down/up the page with my finger.

Pages seem to load ok, but whe I try to scroll down after they have loaded my phone vibrates and goes into a dark gray screen. Then it vibrates 2-3 more times and it force closes.

I have already cleared both the cache and data, but this does not seem to fix the issue.

I also searched the Epic 4G forums for "browser force close" and got no results.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thank you in advance!

i had this happen with a couple apps, the clock, browser (but not every time), and the weather channel. what fixed it for me was erasing everything and going back to stock. i had to reinstall all my apps and set everything on the phone again, but once i did everything has worked fine.

May have to do the whole sd card thing. What u could do for a quick test to see if it is the sd card is power off phone, remove sd card, boot back up and try bowser. If it no longer FC then u need to reformat ur card. If it still FC then I have no idea
