The safari browser frozen when I touch the search column or the web address entry column of the browser yesterday after using my new ipad mini for about two weeks. Only press the main bottom of my iPad to be able to leave the safari. It happened in my previous iPad 2 also. After re-enter the safari, the browser screen will show nothing and all parts in the browser no reaction for touching. I found that only switching off or on the 'private browsing' in setting and reply to close all previous browsing can restore the safari browser to a ' normal ' condition but the frozen situation will come again when I touch the search column or the web address entry column .

    See if any of these suggestions help.


    Quit the Safari app completely and restart the iPad. Go to the home screen first by tapping the home button. Double tap the home button and the task bar will appear with all of your recent/open apps displayed at the bottom. Tap and hold down on any app icon until it begins to wiggle. Tap the minus sign in the upper left corner of the app that you want to close. Tap the home button or anywhere above the task bar. Restart the iPad.


    Restart the iPad by holding down on the sleep button until the red slider appears and then slide to shut off. To power up hold the sleep button until the Apple logo appears and let go of the button.


    Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons.


    Go to Settings>Safari>Clear History, Cookies and Data. Restart the iPad.

    I might have a solution to your problem, my new ipad Mini was having some of the same issues. I finally went into Safari menu in the Settings app and turned on "Always Show Bookmarks Bar" switch, which adds the bookmarks bar below the navigation buttons in Safari and I discovered that I was able get the address bar and search bars to respond normally after I did that. Hope this helps you.
