Default browser closes when accessing wikipedia - 03-08-2011, 02:22 PM

Just recently I've been experiencing some odd behaviour with the browser on my streak.

Every time I access wikipedia, directly or via a link, the browser closes. Not force close, an orderly but unrequested closure.

I installed Dolphin HD, same issue. Opera mini gets in but won't search.

Any ideas?

As a workaround, you could try the mobile version of Wikipedia.

Mini 9 | Intel 5100 Wifi | Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook
Mini 1012 | SSD | Intel 6200 Wifi | Ubuntu 11.10 64bit

This solution is from MoDaCo.

Instead of ADB you can also use Root Explorer to copy the required files.

I also have the same problem for a few times but I was not accessing wikipedia.
Anyone can tell me what is the cause for this instead of using workaround?

Red face Browser Closes When Using Wikipedia - 04-09-2011, 06:44 AM

I had no problem entering Wikipedia via Skyfire Browser (the best browser), which has a Wikipedia link at the bottom of the featured sites.

The Wikipedia link is to a "random" Wikipedia entry, but once there, you can use the Wikipedia search engine for whatever you want.
