In the last couple of days, by Z10 browser appears to have gotten broken somehow. It's incredibly frustrating and I don't know how to fix it. The problems I'm seeing include (but are not limited to):
- Not being able to close a tab
- Not being able to click on hyperlinks within a webpage
- Tabs displaying each other's content (for instance, the URL bar shows blackberry.com, but the tab actually shows google search content from another open tab.
- Incomplete loading of pages (see attached image)
Basically, the browser has become completely unusable. My device information is as follows:
Model: BlackBerry Z10
Model #: STL100-3
OS Version: 10.1.0.1720
I've tried closing and reopening the browser, rebooting the phone, power cycling the phone, pulling the battery, removing the MicroSD card, turning of wifi, etc. I'm stumped.
Please tell me there's something else I can do besides restoring this device to factory settings.
If I DO have to restore to factory settings, can I do the restore and then put my full device backup back on the phone, or will that just undo the restore and bring this problem back.

I've redone the factory restore and tested the browser, and it works properly, so it must be something in my system configuration that broke it.
I've restored just settings successfully, but I'm afraid to restore apps, as I feel fairly certain that this will just break things all over again.
Does anyone know of a way to selectively restore apps from a backup? I'd like to restore some 3rd party ones that have their own data, and expect I can do so without breaking the browser again. However, I see no option to do this in BlackBerry Link.

This solved the problem for me. Thanks to hadigunawan and others on CrackBerry forums.
Somehow, clearing thebroswser settings while in Flight mode solved the problem:
1) switch to flight mode
2) open up browser go to settings
3) clear all history/cookies
4) reset search engine
5) Close browser
6) Turn off Flight mode
7) Restart browser.
