    This is a problem with android webview and google chrome / google apps in general...... use other browsers that is not based on chrome. .

  • I'm not sure that's the issue as I have compared it to my Pixel 3 which has/had no issues with this either in Android 10 or 11. On my ROG 3 certain pages suddenly freeze and stop responding to touch. When I go to home screen or switch to another app and then open chrome again it un-freezes. I wish I could remember what pages this happened on. Maybe it's just something wrong with those pages.

    I'm glad to say I haven't experiece this since updating to 98 but it's early days.

  • in my cases it freeze the whole screen as i unable to press any homescreen buttom or switch apps button. I will need to wait for the not responding tabs come out to close the chrome.

  • That's unlucky. Hope you find a fix.

    I tried browsing that site you mentioned and had no issues on my phone. I can't even replicate the issues I was having previously.

  • Chrome has a habit of acting up in curious ways. Try browsing the same URL on Firefix/Brave etc. and see if you run into the same issue.
