    So I was very excited to see that v9 introduced the web browser that I had in my Model S (albeit not the most effective one). I was initially quite pleased as it seemed to work much better than the browser in the Model S.

    However, I've come to realize that the browser only works sometimes. When it doesn't work, it will refuse to do anything. I can enter a URL, pick a favorite - the browser won't do anything. I type a URL and hit enter - nothing. Try to refresh - nothing. Pick a favorite - nothing.

    When it works however, it works pretty well. Unfortunately that only happens every once in a while.

    So I'm curious - is anybody else having this issue?

    I think we're all having this issue to some degree. I have the exact same symptoms, and it doesn't matter if I'm on LTE or WiFi. I rebooted the screen a few days ago and the browser worked right away. It hasn't worked since.

    It really seems like V9 has some inherent connectivity issues that are causing a number of problems.

    I am definitely having issues. The browser works great when it works but there are a lot of times it doesn't work. Rebooting seems to fix the bug that's preventing the browser from loading pages, but that is not a good workaround.

    It’s a crap shoot.
