Running VZW Pre+ 1.4.5.1

After installing a bunch of patches i found that my browser would not log-in to any websites
like facebook, twitter, okcupid, gmail, etc...

i had this problem previously and the only fix i found successful was to doctor my phone and start from scratch.

if anyone else has this problem there is a far simpler fix

go to phone preferences
delete cookies, history, and cache.

you should be golden.
