Yahoo News pages linked to Yahoo stories are no longer displaying correctly. The top of the screen looks like the page did not render correctly. I can scroll down the page and get text though. Has anyone else noticed the change?

Thanks

Mike

PS I just noticed that it is an Atomic Browser issue.

Now that I think about it I have having lots of Atomic Browser problems to wit:

No customer support.

Google Search results in blank pages.

Yahoo News no longer displays correctly.

Unable to use it at several web pages.

Problem uploading bookmarks reported a few months back.

Frequent nag screen to rate it.

It has potential, but too many problems which are not encountered in Safari.

I am now thinking about Perfect Browser ...

The easiest first way to try to solve ‘unexplained’ or ‘unusual’ problems with the iPad are:-

Force the offending app to close. If you have iOS 4.2 or 4.3 double-press the ‘Home’ button to bring up the multi-task bar at the bottom of the screen. Press *and hold* any icon until they start to ‘jiggle’. Then tap the top left-hand corner of the app that you want to close. It will ‘disappear’ from the list. Don’t panic - you’ve not deleted it, just closed it. Now tap the Home screen and the multi-task bar will disappear. Re-open the iPad’s app and see if the problem has resolved itself. If not, it’s on to possible solution number two!!
Restart the iPad. Press *and hold* the Power button. After a couple of seconds a slider control will appear asking you to confirm that you really want to switch the iPad off (this is all you’ll be doing). Slide the control to accept. A rotating white ‘bezel’ will appear in the iPad screen as the iPad powers down (it takes a few seconds, just like it would if you were shutting down your PC). When the screen of the iPad has gone completely blank, press *and hold* the Power button for a couple of seconds until the white Apple logo appears and the iPad starts to power up. This takes several seconds, so be patient. During the power up the automatic screen orientation function is disabled, so don’t panic. A few seconds before the power up is complete, the iPad plays a little ‘jingle’ and then you’re back to the Home screen. Restart the iPad’s app and see if the problem persists. Apple (and Forum members) recommend that you power down your iPad at least once a week, just as you might regularly completely switch off your PC. The normal procedure of just briefly pressing the Power button of the iPad merely puts it to ‘sleep’. Most Forum members have found that one of the two methods I’ve mentioned here cure a whole bunch of unexplained problems and are an easy first step to resolving most anything that happens on the iPad.

Thank you for the response. I had tried all that; no help - looks like a consistent Atomic Browser problem.

Sorry to hear that. There a several threads on the Forum about the Atomic browser giving it glowing reviews, which was why I wondered why you were having such problems. Hopefully someone else will come along with some more helpful comments than mine....:(

I know what you mean; some of those positive comments were probably mine. Many of it's features are very useful. However the list of issues is hard to overlook. The recent/critical comments on the app page are similar to mine. I have also seen critical comments on threads here too. Shame the developer does not have time to fix them.
