Hi there, apologies if there's another thread on this subject. I searched on here and I've also googled - nothing.
Has anyone else had the XMB freeze with the little pulsating circle (top right corner) active when exiting a browser session? The XMB stays that way forever... only the PS button responds, so rebooting is the quickest way out (ouch)
I know of 2 others who have had the same problem. One saw it when exiting the Burnout Paradise web page when starting the game.
Doesn't seem as though it will have a significant affect on your Playstation 3; it is a nuisance more than anything. The stability of the browser is sometimes abit uneven.
What seems to make it jam up though is if you're loading a page that is really slow and laggy because of some flash video or lots of images. Say if you close the browser on google it'll probably never jam up but something like IGN/Gametrailers will make it jam up a lot.
I think ATM the browser is only running on the RAM, but if it eventually uses the cell properly then it'll be much quicker and we won't see any problems like this.
You will find that you can not open multiple pages simultaneously anymore. Many websites now "hang" with the hdd light on while pages are loading...including this website.
Freezes still occur, usually with large pages (photo blogs, plug-ins etc).
SONY really need to spend some time with the browser because it struggles too much doing simple things.
Looks like it could be hazrdous to your saves too.
