    Hi
    I had a WP7.8 phone before where the options of webpages where quite quick, but now on my nokia 920 it is extremely slow.
    For instance if I type 'fa' (for facebook) in the search-bar it takes about 5 seconds to show previously shown webpages starting with 'fa'.

    And if i type it slowly like one second between the letters it first shows the options for webpages starting with 'f' then after 5 seconds the choices for 'fa'.

    Does any one have any idea of how to speed up the process ?

    I'm going to assume you're in a good connection area? Does it do it on both wifi and mobile data?

    If your connection is good you have an OS issue that would probably only be corrected with a hard reset. You can try doing a soft reset first, also try deleting history in IE.

    Not much can be offered unless you've played with the proxy settings on your phone and that's what's messing it up.

    arent these previously shown pages/addresses just retrieved from the history and not from the 'internet' ?

    It seems to me that I've had issues with this, and clearing IE history tends to solve it.

    As stated by the person above me it would appear the cache gets too full you and need to empty it. If that doesn't solve it then there are other issues.
