    Hi there...not sure if you tried any of these quick fixes...but give it a try.

    Force the app to close down 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!

    It was not an app I was using, I was trying to access a forum on the web. Does that make a difference? Thanks!

    Sure, it could still be it. You were accessing the forum via Safari, which is an app. So, try the reset suggestions outlined by skimonkey and see if that helps.

    You may also want to go into the Settings app and clear out the cookies and history for Safari. That may help free up its memory also.
