    I am using an ipad 4 with the new update. The last day or two when I open mercury it works fine until I try to type something in the search bar after two letters I get a notice that mercury has stopped working, this only happens when typing. I have been using mercury for a couple of months with no problem. Any ideas?

    Hi Vett - probably the app - I just put it on my iPad 2 and am having a few issues. You might want to follow the usual recommendations in the quote below, i.e. first 'Force Close' the browser (follow the directions relative to your iOS), then retry; if not successful, then go down the list (or just go to a 'Reset') - let us know if this helps? I'll continue to test this browser on my iPad - Dave :)

    Well, I'm not sure what you mean by 'that didn't work'? Since you mentioned 'Step B', I'm assuming that you have iOS 7.x on your iPad - correct? If so, did you go to the multi-tasking screen and drag the Mercury icon to the top of the screen and did it disappear? Below is an attached image of my multi-tasking screen w/ the browser image showing, by pressing and then dragging to the top, the icon should disappear (if in iOS 7.x) - that is a 'Force Close' - so, try again if that did not occur - if still not helpful, then proceed down the list. Good luck & let us know the results - Dave :)

    Sorry Vett for your problems - I have 3 browsers on my iPad 2 but usually use Safari and just put Mercury on the device and have noticed a few issues - I suspect that the app plus the recent iOS upgrades may not be 'meshing' well together? - don't know, but if your browser bookmarks & other settings are crucial, then you might want to consider using another browser? BUT, if you do figure out the issues, please post back here - good luck! Dave :)

    Is this the free version of Mercury? Or the paid version. (Don't think it differentiates anymore in the AppStore though)

    This is a known issue. I've read somewhere that the developers are working on a solution. What you can do until then, is set the address bar style back to classic, so that search and address field are separated. Search will keep on crashing, but at least you're able to enter an URL address.

    You'll have to wait for the next update to fix this. At the moment there's nothing else you can do.
