Hi Susan,

You can lock the screen to avoid the flipping. If you've got a Fire HD, brush down the top of the Home screen to bring up options. Tap "Unlocked" on the left.

If you've got a regular Fire, tap the gear icon on the top right of the Home screen, then "Unlocked" on the left.

Note: Some apps and games are designed only one way - landscape or portrait - and cannot be changed by tapping Lock/Unlocked.
