    Auto Lock and Browser issue

    Advertisement



    So won't go into detail but suffice it to say that I pulled a bonehead move and had to reinstall the OS.

    I currently have a password setup when the phone locks, and have it set to auto lock after 5 minutes of being idle.

    The problem being that when it locks, the browser (which used to remain open in the background) now closes.

    Wouldn't be a BIG issue, but the added pain is that it also loses any cookies etc.... so I end up having to log back into any sites that I was previously in. I never had to do this before.

    Any help?

    Thanks!

    Well I don't recall seeing anyone else describe an issue like this. I'm bumping this hoping to get you some help. You may want try a different OS version or a wipe and re-install if nobody comes up with a solution for you.

    I've never seen such an issue either. What device and what OS are you using? My browser remembers cookies for days, and my device locks everytime I holster it.

    Thanks for the tips so far... But no resolution

    I am running:
    BlackBerry® 8830
    smartphone (GPRS, CDMA)
    v4.2.2.148 (Platform 3.0.0.67)
    Cryptographic Kernel v3.8.4.47
    Micro Edition Configuration: CLDC-1.1
    Micro Edition Profile: MIDP-2.0
    Micro Edition JTWI Version: 1.0
    Micro Edition Media Version: 1.1
    Micro Edition PIM Version: 1.0
    Micro Edition File Version: 1.0

    Cookies etc used to stay for me as well when it autolocks (or even via a manual lock)...prior to the incident I mentioned

    I tried to gheck security settings and even restored them to default... No go


    I was planning to try a complete wipe and reinstall but was hoping for an easier solution... Maybe upgrade to the unofficial 4.5??

    Argh!

    That's completely weird. I have never had that happen to me. How often do you have the memory cleaning security option enabled (clean while idle? Idle timeout?). That may be wiping your internet history, cookies, etc.
