After playing around with my Kindle Fire HD for a few weeks, I wanted to delete all the data I had accumulated on the Silk Browser. After deleting all the history, cache, and cookies, I went in and tried to delete the individual website data storage and found that some sites, for example Google, still remain in the list despite having their data erased and showing that they have 0.0 MB stored on my device. Any ideas how the sites and their data can be deleted permanently?

Note: There are a handful of other sites other than Google which are much less regularly used and still do the same thing for me.

Go to Applications \ Installed applications \ Silk \ Clear Data

Great , that worked, thanks

That does not clear the websites in "individual website data". I have cleared everything from Silk, but nothing works.

Can you explain how to do this. I went under my apps on my Kindle and clicked on silk all it did was take me to the internet?

It totally works....pull your settings bar down (swipe down from the top of Kindle), go to Applications, Silk and clear all data!!

There is no option as follows: " Applications \ Installed applications \ Silk \ Clear Data" there are only options to clear history, clear cache, clear cookie data, clear passwords, clear form data, and clear location access. None of those options will remove sites listed under "Individual website data" . Is there a clear method to clear that list short of resetting the entire Kindle to Factory defaults?

Go to more-settings- applications-silk. Scroll down to individual website data. Click on that. A page will come up with a list of websites. As you click on each an option will appear to clear any data.

You're in the wrong section. NOT the Web > Menu.

Do as monilee said. Swipe down from the top to get that menu. Tap More > Settings > Applications > Installed Applications > Whatever you want to deal with.

Iam trying to go on you tube to watch videos...But everytime I press the play button it will not play the videos...It freezes

Most YouTube videos are in Flash, which has not been supported by Adobe on Android devices since August last year.

There are many, many (many, MANY) threads here about how to get an older (outdated) version of the Dolphin browser, which will allow you to view Flash videos.

Use the search function over ----------> there, and put in "Install Dolphin Fire". Be sure to UNcheck "only this discussion".

This is the first kindle fire hd or anything like it I have ever owned. How do I set my age and other personal data?

It's confusing because Silk is listed in settings/applications and you can clear cache cookies etc so you think your done. Go settings/applications and its the second option down 'installed applications'. You know your in the right place when you see the app icons next to their name. By clicking silk here you can then clear data :-)

I dont even know how I got silk browser. It just appeared. How do I get rid of it?

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 15, 2013 5:46:14 PM PDT
What? Silk *is* the "web" on your Fire. They all COME with it.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 15, 2013 6:36:27 PM PDT
Yes but I never had it showing on my background or as a favorite. I don't like it.

It's on your carousel because there was an update. Just tap and hold until the menu comes up, choose "remove from carousel". Poof, you no longer see it.
