Browser Issues

Status: Open

Because there are many apps not available for the Nook HD/HD+ we depend on the browser a lot more to access things like Facebook. This needs a little work. I'm on the current release: 2.06.

 

  • The browser, not infrequently, either freezes or crashes/suddenly closes. When it freezes I have to restart it to get it to be responsive again.
  • There are times where there is a field to fill in and the keyboard covers the field so you can't see what you are typing. There's no way to scroll so you can see or set up the screen ahead of time so the keyboard doesn't cover it. I've run into this on Paypal and Facebook to name a few.
  • It can be very slow and jerky at times.

 

Those are bugs. Then there are usability issues.

 

I wish the bookmarks had an option to not show a thumbnail. At first I liked the feature but as my bookmarks grew it became a pain. I'd like ways to sort them too as well as to have folders to categorize bookmarks.

 

I'd even like a CHOICE of browsers - to be able to use Firefox or Chrome if I wish.

I've run into this on my ipad, I wonder if its bad web design rather than the browser.  The web design would be what causes the keyboard to pop up wen it's needed, I would think.

 

oh and have you tried the touch Facebook site, I've heard  the tablets work better on it.    It's touch.facebook.com.
