This is very annoying issue. Hopefully they will be able to fix it somehow. In the meantime I found another way to restart the browser app that seems to be a little bit more efficient then reboot. Go to settings>Security>Restrictions>Enter passcode>Browser. Just uncheck Browser option and check it back. Go back from Settings to Browser. Now you can see the application restarted from home page. It is still very annoying but at least you don't need to reboot the thing.
Try turning off java script in the browser options. It seems to resolve my issue with the stock browser crashing every time I browsed to my facebook page.
Thank you for posting. I got my Nook Tablet yesterday and have been using the browser almost exclusively (silly me, that's what I bought it for--I don't really care about e-books, just thought it would be nice to have a tablet for that price).
Now that I've used it maybe 10 hours I'm thinking about taking it back. The browser is not quite ready for prime time if you ask me. I had no problem with any website I visited during the half hour I played with the Nook Tablet at Best Buy, but mine freezes up all the time. Try to play a video, maybe it works; if it doesn't the browser hangs. Click on a hyperlink, maybe it works; if it doesn't the browser hangs. I'm spending more time getting the browser un-frozen than I am actually browsing. I'd be OK that it can't support all the functionality on every webpage (that's a tall order for any browser), but it should at least meet it gracefully.
I feel kind of stupid now for buying an e-reader for its browsing capabilities. Suppose I should've expected this.
Superb!!! Worked...Thanks a Ton Bro!!!!
