Okay so I`m exsperancing some problems ONLY happens with stock, Chrome always works fine when the stock htc browser problem is occuring but Chrome is always laggy.

Anyway the stock browser from time to time will stall, Both on WiFi and 3G it will all the sudden stop working and no matter what page I try to load it will sit there and say its loading, But I can go into an app and everything work fine same for Chrome works just fine while the stock htc browser wont load anything like there is no connection. Ive tried factory resetting stock rom and does it with every rom ive tried as well except CM

I have experienced similar problems with the stock browser and I am liking Chrome less and less every day as it is getting laggy. I use Dolphin Browser with Dolphin Jetpack installed - it certainly is one of the best browsers I have ever used.

Unfortunately, the problem is still there.. when I force the closing of the stock internet browser I can repair the situation but after a few browsing the problem comes back again... The stock browser becomes unusable and I have to use chrome.
Do I have to proceed with a factory reset? Is it the only solution?

Have you tried clearing the app cache and settings? Settings -> apps -> internet... You might have to swipe to get to the 'all' apps rather than 'downloaded'.

I cleared browser cache : didn't work
Then i did your solution (( cache and data )

It stalled a 1/4 h later :(

That has nothing to do with the issue. This happend on a clean install even on stock.... I no longer have the phone so I no longer have the issue anymore :)

Did you flash a custom ROM? Rooting and unlocking shouldn't cause this weird issue. The reason I asked about the ROM is one ROM I used (insertcoin) had an optional modded browser that an issue where you couldn't search from the browser bar. Maybe these are related.

Stock rom does it no root no anything

Stock rom also for me. Both in 3G or wifi. No effect with clearing of cache/data in the browser.

If I disable the JAVASCRIPT option, the browser seems to work properly.

Same problem for me too. Must be related to something Google updated recently. After the 4.2.2 update it worked good for weeks. Stock rom.

This happened to me on cleanrom but has been working fine since I flashed a new Rom. I thought it was a Rom problem

Same issue for me also, since Trickdroid 9.0 it's been doing this. Only thing that works is clearing cache and force closing but the issue arises again anyway after a bit of use.
