Default Strange Folder problem

I don't know if anyone has had this problem but its strange and yet a lil annoying. I use one folder on my home screen currently to put my most used apps in. I don't have any widgets or anything else on my screen, just the 1 folder. Every now and then I'll just finish using the browser or one of my apps and I won't be able to open my folder. Sometimes over the course of the day, it'll mysteriously start opening again but most of the time I won't be able to use it again till I restart my phone. Any ideas?

Happens to me sometimes too. I usually restart the phone to get it working again. Quite annoying.

instead of rebooting the device, you should just use a taskkiller app to kill the launcher and then press home to restart your launcher and see if that's fixes it...
