Do you just go to settings and from there what do I look for to enable the setting for adobe

Carmicheal, open your browser, then tap the Gear, then Settings, then scroll to Behaviors, and Enable Flash.

I bought a kindle fire for 199 $ today and cannot find the "enable adobe" checkbox in the settings. Where is it?

The Kindle fire HD doesn't have Adobe Flash, It uses Android 4.x operating system and Adobe doesn't support this level anymore.

The new 2nd Gen Kindle Fire and the Kindle Fire HD do not support flash out of the box. There is a work around if you want to have Flash up and running on a new Kindle Fire. 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.

When trying to install the Flash downland, there is a "Parse Error - Problem parsing the package." Any ideas to fix this? The other two items downloaded properly.

David I am not sure what to tell you. Did you install Dolphin HD before you tried to install Flash? If not, try that. Also, try deleting the copy of Flash that you downloaded and download it again. This has worked for hundreds of folks, so I'm sure we can figure it out.

these options are not available on my brand new kindle fire HD. Support told me that my device does not support flash. I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS. There has to be a solution to this. There's too many pages and apps that use flash. I need help before this Kindle becomes a frisbee.
Just noticed instructions above. I'll give it a shot.

If you want Flash, talk to Adobe, they've removed Flash support for Android devices since Flash will be obsolete with HTML5.
The solution is the pages and apps that use flash will have to drop flash.

Now,when I go to download and install ES explorer, I get a message saying "you already have ES file player. Please locate it in your library", but it is clearly not there.

Connect your Kindle Fire to the internet, Sync it from the settings menu, and the look in the "cloud" section of the apps tabs.

If you do already have ES File Explorer, you can check by going to "Your android apps" on your Amazon account.

I can't seem down load Adobe flash drivers to the Fire HD. Nothing in the settings about flash. Can I get around this?

In fact, the address above does not work. I have the ES file supporter and Dolphin, but only get error message and t he comment that dropboxers will be notified :-(

Just to add insult to injury, I was just looking at keyboards to use with kindle fire hd (on Amazon), and I wanted to watch the little promo video about one I liked, but I got the message that I could not view it without Flash! Come on Amazon. Either don't sell a product that will be unable to access countless sites, or sell for a whole lot less money than we paid for this, and include a caveat about the huge problem users will experience. I cannot use several of my favorite sites because they need Flash. A real bummer.

My Forum Christmas wish is that people stop complaining about the Fire not having Flash. It was Adobe's decision, not Amazon's. If you have a beef, talk to Adobe. Or get over it.

edit - speeling
