Safari is acting up
I an not computer savvy at all and hope this can be a quick fix. My Safari browser has been going black while I am browsing and I lose whatever I was doing. Sometimes it does not connect to a site at all, or just for a few seconds and goes black. On one site that I use daily, it will not even open then page now because it says I have too many redirects, whatever that means. Any solutions?

Hi Sooz-along with the great thread for which KayKayKay has given you, what iPad do you have, 1or 2.
Not sure if you have done this, but may want to give this a try:
Do the first 2 steps first. Save step 3 as a last resort.
1. Force the app to close?
2. Try to restart your iPad?
3. Try to do a soft reset?
You can try this in order, if an app becomes funky.
Force the app to quit by pushing the home button twice to bring up your multi-task bar. This will show all the apps that you have visited. By long pressing the app in question, it will begin to jiggle-press the red circle with the negative sign on the app. It will only quit the app and not delete. Than try to re-open the app and test out.
If that doesn't work, restart the iPad by pressing the power switch down to power off.
Third is to do a soft reset by holding the power switch and home button together until you see the apple logo. Hope that helps!
