    Silk browser issues since update

    I had been learning Silk tap & hold techniques to open a link in new tab - And I wasn't having much luck. Then 6.2.2 messed me up big time. Now I get a different response. Say I have a listing from a Google search, and I tap & hold a link - 7 out of 10 times the screen will scroll all the way to the bottom of the list. Anyone else experienced this?

    So, I must be doing something wrong. BTW I use a stylus - fingers too fat for detailed work.

    How do you perform the correct sequence to:
    1) get the "box" option of opening link in new tab?
    2) highlight a non-HTML web address to copy to clipboard?

    BTW I do like the full screen option that 6.2.2 brought.
    Thanks for assistance.
