    Hi there.

    I am experiencing some weird behavior when using the pinch to zoom gestures on the playbook. as soon as I remove my fingers, the display zooms twice or more then moves right or left in a very strange manner. I cannot in fact zoom on any area of the browser without having this weird behavior.

    does anyone experienced this behavior ?

    Hi, no I'm not. What happens when you double tap? Have you cleared your browser cache and all?

    I am not sure but I think SOME webpages are designed to enlarge in specific ways. There's a local tv site that acts somewhat like that. I tap (or double tap) on the site to zoom it (rather than pinch zoom) and it will enlarge/zoom and then move the focus to the left side of their page. I can then drag the focus where I want it.

    thanks for the answers guys.

    I noticed this weird behavior especially when I use the google Images browser. Just make a search on google images and try to zoom on any area. I am really interested to know what would be the result.

    Try also to pinch and slide your fingers right or left. sometimes it works well and sometimes it goes south...

    so... could it be a hardware issue ? I will try to film this issue and post it here, just to hear your comments..

    I think that I found a way on how to fix this issue: I deactivated the Java script on the browser, and miraculously everything is running perfect now. the browser is fast as F1! What a difference!
    And the pinch to zoom gesture is working perfectly now.

    I hope that this will help anyone who is facing the same problem

    I get some bouncing around on Google images too. I wouldn't sweat it if that's the only time you experience it.
