. Last two days, when l click on a bookmarked website, or app, says cannot find it. Often takes 2-3 tries to open page.

Posted

for example...........l have a bank web page bookmarked. MOST times this works well with clicking on the bookmarked page. Periodically, browser will say " cannot find server for ....." Repeated efforts by clicking on brower bookmarks eventually gets me to the right page. This situation happens for both regular webpages and when trying to open apps.......But doesn't happen all the time......Just started within last two days, and prior to that, had no problems. of any kind. Now, it seems to take few attempts to get where l want to go....

thank you support team for your suggestions. Will clean out cookies, cache, ( even tho l do it every couple of days ) and as well, will only bookmark MAIN pages, from now on. Since posting my problem, things seem to be working very well...... Again, thanks.

Always be careful with bookmarking specific pages, as those may not always be available and links that involve GET or POST data may expire.
It is usually better to bookmark the main page and navigate from that page to the desired page if you have problems with a bookmarked page.
