Serious browser issues
Having some browser issues since a couple of weeks ago. Web pages were taking a really long time to load, even mobile versions. Then after browsing for a while, it would just stop working and wouldn't open any web pages. A battery pull fixed the problem temporarily, but the browser would crap the bed again after a little while. Lately the problem has gotten worse. I can't open any web pages at all, even after a battery pull.
I've tried clearing the cache and cookies, but nothing works. Anyone else having similar issues with the browser? How do I fix this? Is there a way to reinstall just the browser without wiping the whole OS?
Just curious though. Even if it is one of these things, what would have changed in the last couple of weeks to give me all these problems?

Opera Mini & Opera Mobile ? Download: BlackBerry and could not find the 9650 Bold listed. I looked around and see that they have downloads for OS's in the 4.x & 6.x area on other phones but nothing in the 5.x os. or the 9650.
I'm far from being a total immersed geek about these things so if someone that really knows this stuff could advise me I would greatly appreciate it. I have pulled the battery and cleared the memory for the browser a number of times and the browser works at first use but refused to even hit the router after loading a page or 2 and then blames my network. I've checked that it is not my network as I have access to another.
A paranoid little voice keeps telling me that my phone has been visiting BB central and they are disabling my browser, because I have noticed that there are pages to BB listed on my outgoing log on the router... say it ain't so!
I'm considering upgrading to the OS 6.x using the 7.1 Desk Top manager and then trying to load Opera-mini, as a work around. That seems like a lot of work [stumbling around] for my skill set. any suggestions? I use LogicMail and a browser for the weather radar on this device and it has been great until last week.
I could put in my sim card and pay for a month's data to do the upgrades if that makes sense.
I hope it is OK that I bump this thread. Thanks!
