Default Multiple browser instances

Please Login to Remove!

On my 8707v I don't seem to be able to quit the browser app. So over time I seem to be accumulating multiple browser instances. I currently have a number "6" sitting by the browser icon on my home screen. Any idea how to clear these?

When I toggle back to the browser (alt+esc) there's only one browser available on the app popup. And if the BB's been in its holster, the browser has lost the page I was on previously and reverts to the menu screen. This is a bore. Is it a bug, a 'feature' or a limitation of the default browser? Would I be better off with a different browser programme, and if so, where might i find one?

Thanks

By chance are you saving Webpages? I think that is what the number next to yor browser Icon means. I don't save pages so I have never seen this. go to the Message App and select View Folders from the menu. Scroll to Browser Messages and see if there is anything there. Delete or open any that are there and see if that cures your problem. Added thought, while in the Message App, check Saved Messages.

Hope this helps.

Bingo!
That's exactly what it was - weather report messages.

Thanks very much
