On my Kindle Fire, there is a small circle in the upper lefthand corner that looks like a front-facing camera. However, people have been saying that only the HD has a camera. If it is not a camera, what is it, and if it is, how do I use it?

There is no camera. I think it used to measure ambient light, but Amazon disabled it. You do not use it.

If you have the first generation Fire, that's a nonfunctional light sensor. It was disabled in an update, most likely because of heavy battery use.
