So for the last two years I've been in love with my kindle fire hd feature that allows me to click and hold on an image and under the save image there was an option to immediately add to my amazon wish list. This was only available on their silk browser. Now it's gone.

I thought it was just removed after the newest update (which sucks since its my fav feature but whatever) so I called the customer help desk to be sure but the lady I talked to said that this was never ever a feature of the kindle?? My 100+ wishlist disagrees with this but now I'm just confused?? Haven't seen any other forum post on this feature literally anywhere else.

Was this some sort of beta I opted into that ended or some sort of extended fever dreAm? Help me kindle forum you're my only hope!!

Alexa - First of all, I don't know which Fire you actually have since the Fire HD has only been around for a little over a year. I've never noticed this feature on either my 1st Gen Fire (which has been around for two years) or the my Fire HD. I just tried it on both of them and don't see any option like that. All I see is 'Save Image' or 'View Image'. Why don't you just use the Add to Wish List button on the product's page? That option works fine.

Oh oops sorry I just have the fire not the fire hd. As for why I don't use the wishlist button I don't think you understand, I could use it on ANY website that sold stuff. Like for example I saw a shirt on so I held my finger on the image and could add to my amazon wish list just kinda like the button that's available for browsers. I feel like I'm crazy did amazon actually send me a kindle from the future?? What the heck!!!

You aren't crazy!! I just noticed this option went away, too. I can't find anything about where it went or why they took it away. I want it back.

Oh my gosh thank you!!! Haha it's good to know someone else had this too! Yeah going without it really sucks especially since you can't even organize your bookmarks so I can't have stuff I want to buy all in the same place!

I have a kindle fire and have noticed that this has gone as well. It seems a daft thing to remove as it was so handy. I wonder if they are about to replace it with another method a I did notice when I googled it that Amazon said they
are introducing the functionality to the Silk Browser soon.
