ok so ive had my iPhone since launch and its been a sweet ass device. nothing wrong mechanically, other then a few slow freezes here and there with multitasking. anyways this has happen to me the last couple of days on safari. im surfing the net and then all of a sudden it just shuts down. it does it on certains sites, then on other sites it will stay up. by the way this is the only thing im doind, not listening to any music or talking to anyone. whats going on here? is there something wrong with my iPhone or maybe its just a flaw in the software? i don't want to take back iPhone, but its seriously starting to do it more and more. can anyone explain whats going on. thanks in advance.

That happens, and is somewhat common. When done with it, shutting Safari down completely might help reduce those occurrences (press and hold menu button till main menu appears). Restarting the iPhone can help too, say every other day or so.

As far as what triggers it, it seems to be complex pages, but I suppose it could happen any time. I believe it happens to me more when I try to interact with a page before it is done downloading (I still do that though).

But it is very, very, unlikely that this issue means you have a problem with your iPhone.

It seems to be related to using Safari while listening to music, mostly. I've had Safari crash a couple times on it's own with nothing else going on, but 9 times out of 10 it's while listening to music.

There have been a lot of complaints
about this; I have to imagine it will be addressed in the first update.

I'm sorry if this isn't the correct spot to post this.

Sometimes I open a web page in Safari and I don't get an option to close it. There's nothing on the bottom to click on...I have included an example.

Scroll to the top or bottom and it should appear.
Example: I scrolled just past the top of the page and it disappears;

After moving it back to the very top;

It's like that so you can scroll up to make the option bar at the bottom vanish giving you more screen view.

I've had that happen a few times as well. Can you swipe from left to right to go back a page and then close the tab?

If that doesn't work because it's a new tab, force quit Safari and then close the tab after you reopen it.

I've run into this too. If it happens, what I do is I'll first try to zoom out as much as I can on the web page and see if it's possible to click on the button to view open tabs. If that doesn't work, as Europa said, I would double press the home button and swipe up to close the app and restart Safari.
