Can anyone tell me why after after updating my iPad 1 to 5.1.1 ,that some of the apps go for a few mins and then crash. They worked fine until I did the update.

I have the first iPad, and whenever I go IMO websites, after a few seconds it just closes the website and goes back to the main screen. Any ideas?

I'm not sure what you're saying at first. Any website you go to, a few seconds later it closes the browser? What browser are you using?

I am using the Safari browser that came with the iPad . It doesn't happen with email, just on websites. All of a sudden, they close, and it goes back to my main screen.

I see. Have you performed any of the normal steps to resolve this yet? One step is a hard reset where you hold both the lock button and home button at the same time until the device shuts down and then the Apple logo appears.

Most definitely! I've used it many times for my iPhone actually. The littlest of an issue, and like magic it's fixed by doing a hard reset that takes less than 30 seconds.
I've found that quite a few iPhone and iPad users aren't aware of the hard reset. It's not that they're stupid at all, but a little bigger, printed user manual would be nice.

I agree with you 100%. Every time I get a new iPhone, it comes with the small manual thing. I've never read it, but as a businesss student, why is it not bigger, like a car manual size? A book.

If Safari starts crashing again after doing a hard reset, go to Settings > Safari > Clear Cookies and Data. Rebooting your iPad daily and not keeping very many tabs open should help to prevent this.
