Kindle Fire 1st edition: Within the past few days,I have started getting running adds across the top of my Kindle Fire 1st edition. Have I just missed this,or is it a permanent gift?

As far as I know, the 1st generation Fire never had Special Offers. You are seeing those on the Home Page of the Fire? Or when you are on the internet?

Sounds like you installed a free app that gave you a gift. You can restore to factory which means re-installing everything (not something I recommend as first step but it will remove the ad) or you can try uninstalling the last few free apps (one at a time) and see which one removes your ads. If your apps were bought from Amazon, they can be re-downloaded again from Manage Your Kindle page

As Vickie indicated, it's probably from an app you've installed. I installed a free solitaire game and ended up with ads and "offers".
