    Hello, guys.
    I know there are threads for bugs in wp 8.1, but I thought this should get its own thread. I updated my phone yesterday and had it hard reset, then toyed with it for the day. And now, this happened twice in like an hour, when I tried to enter the address in internet explorer 11, the phone crashes and reboots! I think most of you have already noticed that this internet explorer version is quiet laggy, specially the tabs part. Version 10 was a lot faster! I hope I'm not alone on this, and I hope Microsoft will figure this out.

    Thanks.

    The tab interactions do seem laggier than before.

    However I have been using IE since yesterday with no reboot issues when entering a URL.

    Huh?

    He is clearly talking about WP8.1 where the IE version IS 11.

    Hmmm thought I would give it a try (I normally use UC) but I typed in addresses, went to it, no problems, tried several more and still no problems. No lag or anything. I didn't reset my phone, because I really didn't want to spend hours setting it up. But I have had no problems at all... (knock on wood)

    I know it doesn't happen always. But it happened twice. And I just found another bug in IE11. I don't think I'm alone on this. Someone will come and support me! :) But I think we can all agree that WP 8.1 isn't as smooth as we though it would be. Btw I'm using a Lumia 920.

    -edit-
    Just happened again and apparently it's in the app itself not the URL part, this time I was switching across tabs. And oh yea the guy below me reminded me of the battery drain. Thanks.

    As well as the battery drain, I've had IE11 just close without any warning a couple of times. Not had it reboot my phone though.

    Closing IE lags. When I close IE 11, the start screen animation lags (after which, start screen behaves without any lag). Also yeah, choosing tabs is laggy.

    Closing many other applications lag too.

    This is the initial version of WP8.1 . Until this baby will be released to the general public expect one to four more minor updates to fix bugs. Expect maybe one two updates even after general release.

    Relax people. 8.1 will be faster than WP8, there is not doubt of this.

    Another bug is that Glance didn't work properly after the update. At night I had it set to display just the time (no background image) between 10pm and 7am, but that didn't happen last night, it just went blank. Trying to open the Glance app resulted in an error. Uninstalled it, and now can't re-install it, but the bizarre thing is, the glance background is still there, but I have no way of accessing the app to change any settings, and clearly I can't remove it either as it's no longer in the list of apps. At 10pm I expect the glance background will turn of again and the clock won't appear...

    I've found a funny one: when in IE, hold the windows button for a few seconds, then swipe up from there and then the keyboard appears. You cant see what you write and you can only close the keyboard hitting the back button.

    Maybe a strange feature xD?

    Guys, this is not a beta. It's an RTM. We're screwed!

    This! Annoying as hell.

    Pages with mobile sites automatically go there instead of the full desktop site.

    I have a Samsung Ativ, and I also have some problems with the wp 8.1. First I can't open youtube, and I can not read the newspaper from IE 11. Have to use an app. And it drain battery.

    Glance is a firmware thing, not an OS thing, you need to wait to a new firmware for glance compatibility.

    Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaag. IE 11 lags like my grandmother when she's roller skating. Kind of a bummer as 10 was faster than any other mobile browser I've ever used. :/

    Yep. Happened to me too. I recommend a hard reset after upgrading to 8.1. The WP8 data migration compatibility with 8.1 is..... ****ty.

    Did the option to change the tone for text messages go away or was it made just to personalize for each contact? I was wanting to change my text tone but can't cause there's nothing there except ringtone. My just shows ringtone and reminders.

    Yea, this is a big annoyance, I cant even use ebay (web site is still better than the app in a lot of cases), when ever you view a item, it goes to their WAP stie... same with facebook and twitter...

    this IS a bug.. and better be fixed before release
