Help! I keep getting ads when web surfing on the HDX - which is NOT a"special offers" unit. How can I block them?

Those are not related to the Special Offers. Those are just spam from wherever you're "surfing". Also, free (read:crappy) apps have pop-ups, too. But again, that has nothing to do with Special Offers.

Regarding the 2013 Kindle Fire HDX 7": When not in use, (example: over night) should I leave it alone or be charging it? Is it okay to keep in charging for longer periods of time?

For what it is worth, I contacted Kindle support and was told that my HDX 8.9 should NOT be left charging overnight. No reason why, but the official answer was NO. Major inconvenience to have to charge it during the day and monitor to unplug when done, but there it is.

I ordered my 8.9 HDX the first week they were available, I think I have charged it overnight every night since it was received.

Honestly, I've never heard that before. Not from CS certainly.

I charge all of my mobile devices overnight. Fires included.

Me, too. We have an original Fire (with the port gymnastics problem), a 2nd gen 7", a 2nd gen 8.9", and a 2nd gen 8.9" HD. We charge all of them overnight with no problems.
