    How can I open a new website from bookmark when I am in the landscape mode?

    Do I always have to straight it up in order to change webpages????

    Yes. For some reason the controls are different...including the gesture area, when in landscape.

    The gestures in landscape are pretty cool; just swipe up / down to scroll up or down a page.

    Well, not quite-

    If you go all the way back it WILL bring up the bookmark page in landscape. Observe:

    Thanks - but still that's a lame way of accessing the bookmark page. How could they cripple the landscape mode this much? It's almost impossible to browse in vertical unless the webpage is fully customized for mobile phones. Another let down from Palm

    Out of curiosity, have you discovered the double tap feature? When in vertical (or horizontal for that matter), if you double tap on an image or block of text, it will resize the view to fit that. If you're reading a page with paragraphs of text, this is incredibly useful, as it zooms into what you need!

    How do you even access the bookmark page besides going back all the way?

    I just got my pre on Sunday, but what I do when I'm in landscape and want to get to book marks is push the button which brings up the mini launcher where I have the web launcher.

    This does open in another window, and it does not show up in landscape, but I found it faster than anything else I've tried.

    BTW, this is my first post!

    So to tie into this... Is there a way, either in landscape or regular mode, to bring up the "enter URL here" box so that I can browse to a new page without opening up a new card or going ALL the way back through my history to the start page...

    yes..when in vertical browsing, flick the web page all the way to the top of the web page (ie down gesture on the screen) when it reaches the top of the web page it will bounce.. You will then see the "URL" box and you can enter your url there.

    Unfortunately haven't found one in "landscape" mode, but until we get a virtual keyboard it wouldn't be too useful anyway.

    Seriously? Is it THAT hard to rotate the Pre to portrait to select a new Bookmark?? ii

    The trick you're referencing is RocknRollHax, and to my knowledge it only changes the functionality of the email application, though I don't know if it's been tried in others.
