Default 8800 browser is locked!

Please Login to Remove!

my 8800 browser is locked on my google homepage. i can type in text but unable to click any of the links on the page. i can't even close the program correctly - it's locked somehow and i can't even use the options key.

i can switch applications no problem, but the browser is locked.


advice? tips?

Does this happen even after you reboot (or battery pull)?

I was able to crash my browser by going to google.com and then turning on select mode. A reset (Alt-Shift-Del) fixed it.

With the BB powered on, remove the battery and reboot.
