    Cannot type in web address

    Hi all!

    I just purchased a Fascinate yesterday and this forum has been awfully helpful! I seem to have figured out most of my questions, but I have one remaining that I couldn't find the answer to anywhere.

    When I enter the Browser, I have attempted to click the address box so that I can directly enter a url. If I tap the box, nothing happens. If I hold down the box I get two options - "Share Page" or "Copy page url". All I want to do is manually enter a web address...the only way I have been able to go to different sites has been by going to google and searching the site and then selecting the link from the results.

    I don't believe I changed any settings, however I'm worried maybe I did something on accident while I was setting up my home pages, etc.

    Hopefully one of you out there can help me! Thanks so much in advance - I really appreciate it!

    Welcome to the forum! If you can't enter text in the address bar, how do you get to Google?

    Hi Mujibar,

    Thanks for the welcome! I have made Google my homepage so my browser takes me directly there.

    You're using the stock browser, correct? What settings did you change?

    Correct. As far as I know, I did not change any settings. In fact I reset my browser settings to the default just to make sure.

    I would try a reboot & see if that helps. Sometimes that's all it takes.

    Wow Mujibar....I'm almost embarrassed to say that worked! Thanks so much for your help. I will remember this simple solution for any further issues. Thanks again!

    You bet! The simple stuff works a lot of the time.

    Glad you found the site. Great place to be (although I'll admit I'm a little biased).

    when you don't know what to do and you feel like you have done everything to your phone to try and fix a problem I guarantee a reboot will work 95 % of the time. unless your device is just broken then there is nothing you can do anyways lol welcome and I'm glad you figured it out
