i have a Kindle Fire HD 8.9. is there a way to temporarily lock the rotation of the screen so that it always comes up at start up in portrait mode?

Sweep down from the top of the page to reveal the top menu. The far left icon is a progress circle and says 'unlocked' below it. Touch that and a padlock appears in the circle and it says 'locked'

Thomas, yes.

Swipe down from the top

You'll see an icon that says "Unlocked", based on what you describe. Tap it so it says "Locked". That will lock the rotation wherever it is at the time.

However, be aware that some apps will change the rotation, even if you've locked it, I believe.
