    I can no longer successfully launch my PB browser.

    It starts to launch but doesn't fully load the browser, and then within 3 seconds it closes and dumps me back to main PB screen.
    I can't clear the browser cache because the browser doesn't fully launch allowing me to do so.

    Tried hard reboot, etc. No difference.

    Any idea how to fix/clean my browser?

    I want to avoid doing a wipe of the PB as I have a lot of data on it and a lot of things configured - so it would be a big pain to redo everything.

    Have you try using SimpleBrowser? Just to see if it's the native browser is the issue or hardware issue.

    Had the exact same problem, but when I rebooted it, it worked for me.

    Short of wiping, you might try sideloading "Air Browser", which essentially is the native browser and can run alongside of it. You can download it here- https://www.sugarsync.com/pf/D060608...tDownload=true

    Give each of the following methods a shot if you have not:

    To fix an issue, try these in order:

    Restart using the Battery Icon and press Restart

    Press and hold the Power button for 10-15 seconds. Then leave it for 20-30 seconds and see if it restarts.

    To REBOOT:
    Press and HOLD all three keys for about 10 - 20 seconds: PowerOn, VolUp and VolDown. Start with the PowerButton. Keep holding past the 3-choice options screen. If you hear a shutter type sound, you've taken a Screen Shot and probably missed the PowerButton.
