Your Palm’s Blazer taking longer to open?

April 30, 2007

Is the Blazer (internet browser) application on your Palm Treo taking a longer time (like a few more seconds) to start up than before? Does this affect a couple other programs as well, like HotSync taking longer to reset itself after cancelling a sync, or emails taking longer to open inside Chatter?

The (usual) solution to this is ridiculously simple. You gotta clear all cookies from inside Blazer. Yes, just that. Ridiculously simple, like I said.

Here’s how:

  1. Start Blazer
  2. Activate the top menu bar, and pull down the Options menu.
  3. Select Preferences
  4. Click on the Advanced tab
  5. Click the Clear Cookies button
  6. Confirm by clicking OK
  7. Exit the Preferences dialog box by clicking OK

Hopefully, your Blazer should be starting up a bit more speedily, and a couple other related programs may see performance gains. (But then of course you’d have to re-login to your favorite mobile sites. Ah well.)

Thanks to Marc Blank of Chatter Email for clueing me in to this tip.

    Good Tip! I have also clicked the option to disable cookies, since I don’t really use them.

    That took my Blazer start up from 10 seconds down to 3. I have always cleared my cache occasionally but never the cookies. Nice tip thanks!
