2 ideas here. 1) Don't reload the URL. It should still be displayed. 2)
Delete and recreate the widget.
Just spit balling, throwing darts, guessing...

More info: It doesn't seem to be my URLs. First time after reloading the app
the URL works. But if I go to another card and then back again by linking to
the same, identical URL it fails. That tells me that the widget itself
doesn't want to update its own URL setting. I get a blank browser widget
with no text.
