    Hi, every time I open Safari, it would always goes to this one website that I have visited for 1 to 2 seconds then it would go away.. I have closed that webpage already but it's still doing it.. I did clear my browsing history, reset phone etc but it's still doing it.. Can anyone help?

    Sounds to me like you "stepped" in something that left a bad cookie on your phone.

    That's not how that works. It's just iOS's crappy app preview thumbnail management.

    I have seen it do the same strange thing in Dolphin in landscape mode. It keeps loading, for a split second, the video that iwatched about baking coconut cupcakes. It's odd...

    I have the same thing happen with the messaging app and it seems to change from time to time or update to something I most recently had in messages.

    This really isn't a bug, it does that by design.

    By design it's supposed to store the last opened window as a screen shot, not one that's several hours old. It's a bug.

    We really don't know if it is by design or not. We could extrapolate based on Apple's non-action to fix it that they do not perceive it as being a bug.

    If we're gonna use that logic, then I guess horrible Wi-Fi connectivity and Safari crashes are by design too.

    Could very well be. Apple may be trying to achieve better throughput, more responsive connections, or less power consumption or it could be the result of buggy firmware provided by Broadcom. Safari's crashes are harder to pinpoint the exact cause as the internet is a highly varied thing that is full of poorly deigned and overly heavy sites that perform poorly, if at all, on mobile browsers as well as on their desktop counterparts.

    I have a problem in safari when I use the back navigation arrow it will load the previous page but jump right back to the page I was on instead of going back. Very frustrating. I have to hit back twice for it to load the previous page.

    Reboot the phone? Force quit Safari? Did you try any of those? I've seen it pop up with a slightly old screen save (which is the way iOS generates its zoom in/out effect), but never repeatedly one three weeks old.
