QR codes are read but no connect to web

I've had this problem with my iPhone4 and now my iPhone6
I can read a QR code but when I select to go to the web site it points to, nothing happens.

I have 2 different apps [RedLaser & Norton Snap] and they both behave the same.
What's going on?
Am I missing a setting or something?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I used QR Reader for iPhone and never had a problem.

Is your iPhone jailbroken? Jail breaking sometimes breaks data transfer between applications.
If so, BrowserChanger or BrowserChooser can be loaded from Cydia and might help resolve the issue.

When you click a link in an e-mail, does it open in the browser?

If not, then your browser association may be broke. Backup your phone and reset to factory, then restore.

Well, I tried QR Reader for iPhone and it works.
I wish someone had suggested trying a new app so I could give them the points.
