Playbook while tethered causing browser problems

I love my Playbook, but I've found that while tethered to my Bold 9700 and using the regular internet browser, that I can't seem to copy/paste or save an image from a website.  It is also very jumpy while browsing.  I do wait until the page is fully loaded and the blue status bar is done and gone, but it still won't function properly.  I know this is a tethering issue because it has no problems while on wifi. 

 

Does anyone else have this problem and have you found a solution...or is it a bug in the OS while tethered?  If its a bug, I can live with that and just know that it might be corrected shortly.

 

Thanks!

Re: Playbook while tethered causing browser problems

are you on a 3g network or a 2g one?

 

good signal on phone?

 

densly populated area?

 

Tethering does not have the speed of wifi, but would be helpful to know the above questions.

Re: Playbook while tethered causing browser problems

Thanks for the quick reply! Yes, I have a great signal actually. I am in a metro area, but it has perfomed like this even in a non heavily populated area. I am getting a 3g signal.

I understand my 3g connection is slower, but I can't draw a conclusion as to why that affects my touch input. Especially when the page is fully loaded, per the blue status bar.

Thanks!

Hopefully this video helps explain the problems. It happens on all sites. The browser just seems like it is constantly thinking that my touch is a touch meant to resize the page or pinch to zoom. It won't register one tap and hold to bring up the pop up menu.
