    Hi, lately I've noticed something new...occasionally safari will seem to get "stuck". Reminds me of my windows pc when everything just freezes. I've closed all programs when this happens and sometimes it's fine and doesn't happen again for a day or two. I think it's been doing this just since the last update that was something security based with safari wasn't it? I just updated last week and it's been doing this since then...oh and I did shut completely down and rebooted. Any ideas why it would be getting stuck like this sometimes? Thanks. Annette

    You've done all the obvious things, like closing the app in the multi-task bar, and completely switching the iPad off, so not sure what the issue might be. Yes, the update to iOS 4.3.4 was a PDF security patch but I wouldn't have thought that would have caused this issue. Does it always freeze on the same websites or is it completely random?

    It is completely random. Annette

    Well - Tim says (running out of ideas!) - we could try a reboot...

    Switch the iPad off, then hold down the Power and Home buttons until the white Apple logo appears - can take quite a time - and allow the iPad to reboot. I don't hold out much hope for this helping, but it can't hurt and it gives me some time to think of another idea - or someone cleverer than me to come along with another idea (OK, that shouldn't be difficult...:( )

    Thanks Tim. I tried rebooting again today....so far so good. I'm hoping it was just a strange fluke. Hope it doesn't happen again. Thanks Annette

    Please let us know if the problem re-appears and we'll try some different 'solutions'. There has to be a fix for this.
