On KFHD, is anyone else having this problem and when is Amazon going to fix?: About 3/4 of the time, in text fields,, the on-screen keyboard appears momentarily, then the tablet hiccups for want of a better word, the keyboard disappears then reloads, at that point, typing is possible, but the cursor line either is missing or remains in one place as additional characters are typed. The only recovery I've found is restart Kindle. Very annoying!

Never heard of this one.

Is this happening across all your apps requiring text entry or a single app?

If it's a single app, I'd suggest reinstalling the app.

Have you talked to Amazon support? What did they say?

Happens across apps, random frequencies.

We have a 1st gen Fire, a 2nd gen 7", and a 2nd gen 8.9" HD at our house. This has never occurred with any of ours, exactly, but sometimes we have a maybe-similar problem.

Occasionally, here on the fora for example, when I tap Repy, and the box opens, I have to tap the box to get it to "highlight". And, occasionally, nothing will type in the box, although the keyboard is up.

I have to touch the main page, and kind of scroll up & down a smidge, then re-tap the text box. Then my letters will appear.

No, actually. Don't want to, I have enough aggravation, may have to.
