    How do you close browser in SI1912 mini?

    How do you close browser - every time I re-open I am at last page I visited. It never opens at home page?

    Go to Settings and set your home page. Then set to desktop, and it should do what you want.

    Are you using the home button to get out of the browser? That would behave as you described, because you're not "closing" the browser, you're just switching away from it.

    If that's true, use the Back button instead of the Home button, to close the browser. It will first go back through all the pages you've browsed, but when you get to your start page, hitting Back will close the browser.

    One other very frustrating problem with this, though. If any of the web pages you visited, redirect you to another page, when you go "back" to them, they'll redirect you again, and this messes up the back sequence.

    If that happens, you can use the home button to switch away from the browser, then force close the browser in app manager.

    Makes no difference.

    Already set a home page ( why I don't know, because there is no option to navigate to it)

    I have tried both the Home button and the Back button - neither clear the information.

    What is the point of setting a Home Page if it never defaults to it - or gives you the option to return to it (there is no option anywhere, on any menum to go to the Home Page?)

    I can't believe you have to take the route you suggest, just to close a program?

    Why not try a third party browser, Boat works great for me, goes directly to the Home page!
