I am using the Kindle Fire and when I open the App store it loads and the immediately and automatically just closes and goes back to the main homepage. Because of this I cannot buy or browse apps. Any idea what is going on here? This is pretty absurd.

I'd try the normal stuff like reseting it (hold the power button for 20 seconds) if that doesn't work I guess you're going to have to call support in the morning.

Wow. Now I can get to the App store but when I click on an App it immediately backs out. What a crap product.

It just came out a couple days ago...I'm sure their servers are being hit pretty hard...the Fire is not a crap product.

Yup. Just started having this problem too. Through quick, precision button clicking, you can kind of get around it. Just going to have to wait for a fix.

Same problem. I can get into the App store, but the moment I tap on an app, it goes to that page and then backs out to the main App store page. If I try to scroll in the App store, it kicks me to the App page on the Device side.

Love my kindle. Expect a few bugs. Be patient. Amazon wants their customrs happy. It will get fixed. It sounds like a server issue
