    It happend to me a few times. Twice on IE and once with an app (cannot remember its name). The problem is that I couldn't close the app/IE with the back button, because it didn't react.
    Has anyone encountered this before? I closed the app/IE by opening more than 8 apps (lol).

    Keep on clicking rapidly on the back button till it reacts.

    Back button close for IE doesn't work if you've got plenty of browsing done. It only takes you back. Remember we don't have forward and back buttons on the IE10 browser? For IE, tap ..., then tabs, then close tabs by hitting X and now hit back.

    I know that, but it didn't even go to the previous page either.

    I have had this happen several times on my 822. Mostly on busy webpages, but a few times with an app open. Spamming the back button doesn't close it. I have found that hitting the home button and then holding down the back button to show open windows, then trying to open the locked up window will immediately close it every time.

    same old story.. why would you want to "close" apps? Windows Phone handles Multitasking very similar to iOS, except you can control specific tasks, for apps with tiles.
    You really should read this: Fraser Speirs - Blog - Misconceptions About iOS*Multitasking

    Its not about multitasking here. Its about 9 times out of ten, hitting back will close you back to the home screen, but the tenth time it locks up and does nothing. The window is no longer usable. You must go back to home with windows key to get back, then the window closes upon trying to use it again (via holding back button and clicking on the locked up window).

    ^yep. Not about multitasking. This is just another bug that needs to be squashed. If anyone can consistently reproduce it, report it to MS.

    oh ok, sorry I missed the point. In those cases, I close it via the Windows Button and open it with its icon, it starts new and I can close it normally then.

    Hmm I think it's already been fixed, either that or I haven't experienced it. This is on my T-mobile 8X with portico.
