Obnoxious browser issue "Problem with file"

I'm having only one serious problem with my Vibrant, and while it's a little problem, it's frequent enough that it is driving me nuts, and also doesn't allow me to use (at least) one of the apps I use every day.

The issue is, when I go to some web sites, whether in the stock browser, or in another browser, like Skyfire, or whether it's in the browser within an app (for example NewsRob articles) I get a psuedo-crash where it opens the stock browser and says:

In a pop up box: "Problem with file The requested file was not found. webkit/"

In the browser window itself: The Web page at file://android asset/webkit/ could not be loaded as: The requested file was not found. webkit/

In the address bar: the same url as above.

If I hit back a couple times, it will take me back to whatever content I am looking at. But this is incredibly annoying when it's half the articles I'm trying to go through on NewsRob, or when I click certain links and it comes up and I have to hit back a few times before I can look at the page.

I have noticed the following:
- it seems to happen on pages that use Flash, it might be javascript as well, but I'm not sure. HOWEVER, disable plug-ins and javascript in the browser setting does not change the error from happening.
- thinking that it has to do with Flash, I looked into it more on the device. I noticed in Applications, it shows Flash listed, as well as Pineone Flash lite" so I don't understand what level of flash the phone has.
- I also noticed that (coming from a Nexus One and myTouch Slide) I don't see thumbnails for a lot of flash video content like on those devices. If I got to sites with Flash content that is not a video, it's just not there.

Anyway, if anyone knows how to fix this, I'd be much obliged.

I searched google and found almost NOTHING, which is shocking and makes me think perhaps a hard reset would fix it, but I'd really rather not have to re-set up my phone if it's not going to help.

The only thing I found online was that apparently some Droid X owners are having the same issue.

Anyway, any help would be great.

Re: Obnoxious browser issue "Problem with file"

Flash Lite is equivalent to Flash 7..on Android 2.2 it runs full Flash 10.1 support...

Does this happen on all flash content? or specifically youtube embedded videos?

Re: Obnoxious browser issue "Problem with file"

Re: Obnoxious browser issue "Problem with file"

maybe try removing flash lite and getting full 10.1 flash?
