Hi,

I got my galaxy note upgraded to ICS 4.0.3 recently.

I am facing a weird problem with my default internet browser when it comes to google website.

I access google website (www.google.com) and it automatically gets into the mobile site version as normal.

I type anything in the search like (yahoo) and it gets me the suggestions like ( Yahoo, Yahoo mail, Yahoo finance , etc.), beside every suggestion there is an arrow "used to write the web suggestion in the search area if needed" .. till this moment everything is normal.

But, when I try to press on the web suggestion to go directly to it, it does nothing. for example, when i press on (yahoo mail) the page doesn't act and still it stays in the original google site. I tried to use dolphin browser and it doesnt have the same problem.

I have resetted the default browser to its default, deleted the cache and the data... but it didn't help.

Please, let me know if anyone faced the problem and knows a fix.

Thanks alot,

Gano

you can try setting your browsert to te desktop version. This being done by going to browser, then pressing menu button, then select teh 'desktop view' check box. See what happens when you do that.

Assuming I've unerstood your issue correctly ...

you need to press on the arrow, NOT on the suggested text with which it is associated. Once you do that, the corresponding text gets automatically filled into the google search field and you can then hit the magnifying glass (or done on keyboard) to send the search query.
