Safari (and other browsers like Chrome) frequently and abruptly quit on My wife's iPad 1.

I have iPad 3 and have had no issues

 

Thanks in advance for any assistance


PowerBook, Mac OS X (10.4.7)

    Start with basic troubleshooting steps.

     

    Quit all apps 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 or Cache. 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.

     

     

    Clear the caches in the other browsers as well. All browsers should have a way to clear the cache in the browser settings.

    Those are just starting point things to try ... Really are the basics. Good luck and let us know how it goes.

     

    Got yourself a nice young quarterback, now. Could be the start of another great run for your team.

    Thanks for your assistance!  That resolved the issue.

     

    Frequently, I have to remind myself that Luck is a rookie.

    Amazing that we have the chance to have two franchise QBs.

    You're welcome. I'm glad that it worked.

     

    We waited a full 20 years in between franchise quarterbacks. They do not just grow on trees. In the Colts case .... It is not amazing that they had the chance to draft 2 franchise QB's .... It was "Luck"!

     

    Enjoy the rest of the season!

    Luck's first real test on the road
