Playbook Browser Crashing
Interesting issue. After upgrading to ver 1088 everything was good. Then I had to start rebooting my Playbook to get some of the bridging icons to show and to be able to delete emails over bridge.
Now my browser is crashing fairly regularly. Started out just crashing occasionally, now fairly common.
thks in advance.

I have never had to do a security wipe. If the browser crashes on me, I check the available memory and usually find that I have left several things running in the background. That's the problem with a multi tasking machine. I close whatever I don't need, clear the cache and the browser usually runs great again. I am hoping for a memory manager app when BB10 comes. Until then I would just get into the habit of closing apps and clearing cache as a regular task. Hope this helps.

Clear your cache and all in the browser. Three finger salute... power + and - all at the same time until it reboots.
Mine goes in streaks. No poofs for days and then I'll have a day where it will poof I'm gone 3 or 4 times.Sent from me using my fingers. Be pantless in 5K. Febreze - for more than smells.

I know right? Seems showcase would use up the memory. I checked that twice on mine and both times I put it in paused the browser started freezing up and the minute I returned it to showcase, it stopped crashing. Dolphin was doing the same for me as well as boat. All of them kept freezing. I have the latest os update

Every since the last update I am having the same issue, at 1st I thought maybe I had swiped the browser closed because I was scrolling a couple of times when it crashed. Then I realized it also crashed sometimes just opening links on pages. I have been using the paused feature since I had my playbook over a year and no problem until now. I will try the showcase and see if it solves the problem.
