Browser continues to refresh...anyone have a solution?

Last night I attempted to do a Google search on my Droid Charge.  When I pulled up the Browser where Google is the home page, the page continues to refresh on its own, not allowing me to enter anything in the search line.  I have already both restarted the device and, when that didn't work, pulled the battery and it continues to do this.  Any fixes?  I would rather not have to go to the Verizonwireless store and have them look at it.  Of interest is that one of my "apps" is just a link to the web and I am able to get to that site and it works.

After reading a number of other posts on this area I can only hope that my next phone will be less trouble than this one has been.  Unfortunately, it is not due until 2/2013.

I finally looked at a few other posts, cleared history and cache and it has been working well (or as well as it has been recently).  I find that occasionally I can not get any reception even though it indicates there is a 4G network and that there is ongoing data exchange. Then the application (either the browser or the Xfinify app) will time out for lack of a network.  I am not sure whether that is due to network outage or of the NETWORK not being connected to the Internet.

Hi DrPhilip,

Let's make sure you are able to browse the internet from your phone. Please go to Settings> Applications> Manage Applications> All> Browser> Force Stop & Clear Data. This will refresh and reset the app. Let us know if you have any other question.
