I just got the 2nd generation KF after numerous problems on the 1st generation (had to replace it 3 times!). Anyway with the old version I was able to access free movie sites like megashare but with t he 2nd generation I am now unable to. It requires Adobe flash player which isn't supported on our device. Any suggestions?

Search for one of the thousands of posts on adding flash to your Fire. If you search for Dolphin, it would probably be faster.

Adobe stopped supporting Android devices August of 2012. The first generation Fire had Flash the 2nd generation and on do not and will not have Flash.

You can download a flash capable browser and side load the flash.apk file. If you do a search for the work around you will find detailed instructions on how to do this.

This is not limited to the Fire either any Android tablet made after August 2012 will not have Flash support.

Monica - The Experimental Streaming Viewer allows you to view videos on the web using Silk.

Go to the Web tab > Menu > Settings > Accelerated page loading > turn on.

This will turn on two other settings:
- Enable Flash Forward
- Prompt for experimental streaming viewer

Complete information is here, including how to use the viewer:

You need to have the latest software update to use this:


If that doesn't give you the desired results, Adobe stopped supporting Flash on all Android devices (not just the Fire) in August 2012. Amazon can't provide it. Therefore, you need to manually install it.

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:

(Note - The .apk files provided are the most current versions:
Dolphin 9.3.2
Flash for Ice Cream Sandwich from Adobe's Archives)

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 by tapping on the icon.

When you launch the Dolphin browser, go into the settings and make sure "User Agent" is set to "Desktop."

*Note that the .apk file for ES File Explorer has been added to the Dropbox link. If you have any trouble with ES File Explorer from the Amazon App Store, use that.


To open the Dropbox link from your Fire (this works best if you're using a stylus):
- Press on the first part of the link.
- Two brackets will appear.
- Move the right bracket to the very end of the link. Make sure you get all of it highlighted.
- Then select Copy from the popup box.
- Click on the + in the upper right of web page you're on to open a new tab.
- Tap in the URL field and an option to Paste will appear. Tap that.
- The Dropbox link will open up.
- Tap the file you want to download. It will underline and a screen will appear with a Download button. Tap that.
