    I have noticed that when I am in MacRumors or another forum or at the Washington POST site that when I'm reading an article or post that provides a link to another one, when I click on it, I get the message: "Could Not Open a Popup Because There Are Too Many Pages Open." ?? Has anyone else experienced this? I have tried turning off the iPhone and then going back to the same thing to see if that makes a difference and it does not. While it's not a huge deal, it is somewhat annoying at times when I want to be able to jump to the other page, read it and then return to my original page.

    Thanks!

    Although I don't remember hearing that there was a tabs limit, how many tabs do you have open at a time? Does closing some of them help at all?

    I haven't noticed any tabs on the iPhone. I usually have one window open at a time. However, I do know that the iPhone does not close applications when you leave them. That's why I thought maybe shutting it off and then restarting it would clear the whole thing.

    They'ren't (double contraction!) "tabs" in the traditional sense. When you open a new browser window on the iPhone, they are considered additional tabs rather than new windows. Why? I don't know.

    Shutting off the phone and turning it back on should clear the tabs. I think. But, I could be wrong.

    ...and they can be accessed by tapping the lower right corner while in Safari. Is there a chance you have a ton of them open and didn't even know it?

    AHA! Solved!!

    When looking again at the iPhone with a browser window open I suddenly noticed the little thingy at the lower right with a number in it....touched that and the window suddenly became shrunken, making it possible to then touch the red X and voila! The number count was reduced.... Did that a few times and then once more tried following links, this time with success. :)

    Just for my own edification, how many tabs did you have open?

    I had 8 of them open. That's what caught my eye: the little thingy with the number "8" in it. I thought, "oh....wait a minute!" So now I know....pay attention to closing those!!! I hadn't even noticed that before -- DUH!!! Guess there was so much new all at once that I didn't pay attention when first following links....

    Thanks, all!
