    Has anyone experienced this problem? When I go to view some web pages from my web browser and I get there, it disappears and it goes back to the screen where my icons are.

    It's just your Safari app "crashing." It does that ... sometimes.

    Easiest/best thing to do when that happens is to completely close Safari down by - do a four-finger swipe up or double click the Home button to reveal your last used apps. Then, press and hold the Safari icon until it wiggles. Then, press the red minus sign ("-"). Then, you should be good to go.

    If it continues to happen a lot, then try either restarting or resetting your iPad:

    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears.

    Reset: Hold both the power and home buttons until the screen goes dark and the Apple logo then appears (the slide to unlock screen may or may not appear). Once the logo appears, release the buttons. After a time, your homescreen will appear. Please note that it may take some time for the Apple logo to appear or for your homescreen to appear (or both). This is normal. Eventually, the homescreen will appear.

    The iPad is like any other computer - sometimes it needs a swift kick in the software to make it behave. :D

    Hope this helps.
