Please help- browser closes with no warning

Ok I have a Huawei H866C with Android V.-2.3.6 (Gingerbread).
Browser details,
Browser- Monzilla 5.0
Operating System- Linux (Kernel 2.6.35)
Security Values- U
Web Kit- Applewebkit
Web Kit Build- 533.1 (Like Gecko)
Version- Based on Safari 4.0 for mobile device

I go through Straight Talk which runs off on the Verizon network.

Ok so when I am on the browser and I open it from the browser app (I can be on any website it does not matter which one all do it) I will be on it and it all of a sudden with no force close/wait/report pop-up it just takes me back to phone home screen. It varies on time some times its a few sec. and some times a few min. Every once in awhile I can get a hour or two on it. Now if I use the Google search app it does not close out to main screen instead it will take you back to the starting search screen. This is also not necessarily the most recent search sometimes it is sometimes a search or two prier to the latest search. I do not know for sure why this is going on. I continuously clear history, cache, and cookies. I also stay on top of search history on the Google search app. I am really starting to get annoyed with it and considering getting a different browser but I really want to keep the one I have cuz its great except for this one problem please help. I don't know what it is that is causing it if its Mozilla, Linux, the web kit, or just my phone.

maybe that is a bug, your best chances are to install other browser, but if you want to dig further you may want to take a look into logs if there are any.

You should ask this on more appropriate forum, like Linux - Mobile or AndroidQuestions Check how many free RAM you have. I encountered that behavior on my HTC when using Dolphin Browser with many opened tabs. Check other browsers. It is likely that browser has a bug.
