Yes, like Games. There is All Favorites Media Games then Blackberry Bridge if you have installed it. When I choose Favorites it just displays the icons I put there. When I switch between apps, and PB displays the main page it stays on Favs. Swiping on the bezel doesn't change it. You have to choose another tab.
Oh on my PlayBook it does change back to All just with a swipe.
In any case I just want RIM to be aware of the request to hide icons just like we could do on the smart phones. That's why I replied to your post to let them know that the workaround is not something that addresses this requirement... So they should please put that on the list for future updates. Thank you.
