Kindle Fire is listed by Adobe as having it's Adobe Flash Player. Is this true? I just purchased the Kindle Fire HD and it doesn't have the Flash.

Adobe has stopped supporting Flash on all mobile devices. There are plenty of threads that explain how you can still get it though. Just do a search.

Hi Jimmie - There is a way to install Flash on the Fire HD, but you have to also install a web browser that will support it (Dolphin HD). Here are the instructions:

To install Flash: (You have to have a Flash compatible browser in order to install Flash. You can't install it under Silk.)

Do the following on the Fire/Fire HD itself:

Swipe down from the top > More > Device > Allow Installation of Applications.

Install ES File Explorer: ES File Explorer

Download and install the Dolphin HD and Flash Player apk files from this link:

Once both files are downloaded to your Fire, open ES File Explorer and look in the "Downloads" folder. You should see both files there. Install Dolphin HD *first* by tapping on the icon. Then Install Flash.

Thank you very much Laura!!!!
I followed your instructions and it worked!! I've been trying for 2 days to do this. I installed Adobe Flash Player 11.1 on the final step. Again I can't tell you how much I appreciate your instructions. JIM

Hi Jim - You're welcome. I'm glad you're up and running with Flash now.

Can I use this sequence to enable flash on my Android tablet so I can watch prime instant video?

You can certainly try it. I use Dolphin HD on my Toshiba Thrive tablet and I can watch Amazon Instant Video, but it is not quite as crisp as it is on my Fire or on my computer.

This may not work with all tablets, but you can just uninstall the apps if it doesn't work.
