Thank you for your feedback. I understand your concern and I have not heard of this issue with the device as reported. However, as a suggestion, power off your device for a full minute (perhaps removing the battery) and then power up it up. This will do a soft reset. Then use the steps below to try and open the browsers windows. Per the Manuel you should be able to have up to eight windows open at one time. Please make try switching between windows because you could have one opened in the behind another window. I have also given steps to adjust the browser settings to have this feature enabled.  I hope this helps. 

 

1. From the Home screen, select Browser.

2. To open a new window, touch Menu New window.

3. To switch to another open window, touch Menu Windows. Touch a window to display it.

 

 

Browser Settings 1. From the Home screen, select Browser.

2. Touch Menu, then More, then Settings. Look for: Page content settings where you can open a window in background. When enabled, new windows open behind the current window.

There are also alternative browsers to choose from in the Market.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Maybe most people don't open more than four windows at time. Maybe Samsung and VZW decided to limit it. I don't know.

I know that I generally don't open more than four windows. I also use a alternative browser for more functionality. On my Eris though, I just have the stock browser. As a test, I was able to open nine windows and I had to think hard for sites I could remember their URL.
