    Does it make any difference if silverlight is installed on mass memory or not? I have tried both C: and E: (Mass Memory) and have noticed that when I goto, symbian browser simply shuts down, uninstalled and page loads in browser, is silverlight heavy is it not?

      The data tag issue as talked about on official documentation prevents any existing Silverlight based website to be open on the symbian browser due to a Nokia browser issue. If you are using XM5800 and latest firmware this is fixed there but the other devices have to wait until Nokia releases BrowserNG/7.2 version to all S60 5th edition devices.
