Sounds like a wifi issue.
Try rebooting your device by holding the power button in for 20 seconds and see if it helps.

S. Wilton - Try resetting your Launcher App.

On your Home page:

* Settings (swipe down from the top of the screen)
* More > Applications > Installed Applications
* Swipe down to the Launcher App
* "Clear Data"

You'll need to reset your Kindle app, too, then.

From the Home screen:

* Settings (swipe from top)
* More > Applications > Installed Applications
* Set filter to All Applications
* Swipe down to the Amazon Kindle App
* Clear Data

It may take a few minutes for all of your books to reappear. Despite the warnings you WILL NOT lose your books by doing this.

S. Wilton - It sounds like your Fire has some issues. I'd contact customer support.

Click on this link and fill in the information.
You may have to sign in. I would use the PHONE or CHAT options.
Do NOT use e-Mail.
CALL ME under the PHONE tab is great if available.
They will call you within minutes.

I don't mean to resurrect a dead thread but I have to say thank you because I've been having the exact same problems (plus all of my Amazon apps and books disappeared!) and was thisclose to posting a question to ask if there was a fix, but I decided to see if anyone had already posted about this specific problem. Thanks so much *~*Pineapple*~*, you saved me from a nervous breakdown :)

Thank you. This worked on my daughter's Fire HD.

I'm having issues with the Kindle app on an Android tablet. It hangs and hangs. I think it has to do with the Kindle trying to sync.
