Green internet status bar freezes, even when connected at full strength!

I mainly use the internet on my tablet at home, connecting thru wifi. I had no problems until recently...i'm surfing the web & then out of nowhere, the screen wont move when i try to access another site. The green bar basically stays at the line of the back arrow. Ive turned the tablet off, wsited andvthen restarted...but it eventually happens all over again. Mind you, the connectivity symbol on the status bar is full (strong i should say). Any suggestions, help?

Browser freezing might not be related to WiFi at all.

 

What other apps do you have running recently?

 

When you exit apps do you use the 'Back' button in the Apps and exit (which closes the app) or do you just press the 'n' button (which just keeps the app running in the background)?

 

What happens if you go to the shop and download one of the other browsers like Puffin or Dolphin or Maxthon? Do you get the same issue?

Yes, you should search for Puffin and Dolphin and download those and try.
