Adobe stopped supporting Flash on mobile devices over a year ago. You can sideload Dolphin and Flash as you did on your Fire HD, or you can use the streaming viewer in Silk. See this page -

I don't have Dolphin, and never try to use Adobe Flash, but I manage to see the videos I want to on my HDX, the few times I try to do so. I get my videos via Prime. If there are other videos elsewhere-FB, YouTube, some porn site, etc-which won't load / view due to the lack of Flash, they doesn't bother me. It might bother you, or it might not. There are plenty of videos available via Prime.

Glad it doesn't bother you, Erin.

My new Kindle Fire HDX is frozen. It doesn't respond to changing screens or to the turn off button. Help, please!

You say it doesn't respond to the power off button, try pressing and holding the button for 30 seconds, non-stop. Ignore any power off prompt that may appear, and hold it for the full 30 seconds. If it powers off this way, then press the power button as you would normally, to turn it on, and the device should reboot. Hopefully, that will resolve your issue, if not you'll need to use the Help link at the top of this page to contact Amazon Customer Service for additional troubleshooting.
