Does anyone know what this update is about. I checked there is nothing so far on kindle support yet.

No clue, but this practice of pushing out updates before info on them is available makes me uneasy. Seems like very poor form, especially since we may like to at least know what to expect from the software forced into our devices with no option.

I agree and there has been no announcement on the kindle forum as well. hmmmm

I saw someone mention they can now highlight in a choice of colors after their Fire updated to 7.4.5

Oh, good, because that was a deal-breaker for me.

Anyone else having issues with dolphin browser and flash support? Odd that my Kindle Fire HD keeps crashing whenever I use dolphin browser.

Steve Huber says:
yes I am alo having problems with Dolphin browser. I think this is a conspiracy to get us to use Silk.
I tried reloading dolphin but it did not work. This sucks.

doubt it's a conspiracy - Amazon is under no obligation to make it's system compatible (sp?) with any sideloaded apps and/or browsers just like MicroSoft is under no obligation to make sure all your programs (non-MicroSoft) will work when they send out updates

I don't hold Amazon or Kindle responsible for any issues, just wanted to make sure I wasn't the only one having them. I use flash on the dolphin browser to watch videos, but I guess I can always watch on my laptop.

you may find with the update, that more videos are viewable on Silk now

I don't know as I haven't received the update yet

This morning, I shared a photo from Fire to FB, and got a prompt to add all my FB albums to the cloud. Part of the update?

Ammy is pushing FB all over the place.
I refuse to link as I rarely use FB.

The worst changes Ammy is planning is to profiles.

OMG! How hideous! It makes me want to delete all of my reviews. :(

Send feedback to Amazon.
Only one person in a thread of 59 participants did not hate it.

CBRetriever says:
me too - do you think they could make those images even bigger?

and what's the browse for?

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 19, 2013 5:18:58 AM PDT
GAH! It's like a giant ad insert page!

*DISLIKE*

Wow, that is horrible. Looks like a child's picture book.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 19, 2013 5:43:05 AM PDT
Just emailed them. It's grotesque. If they want to "fix" something they need to make it so your true identity can't be discovered through your Wish List. I pointed that out.

I'd hate to have an empty profile, but I just may have to go that route. I don't do as many reviews as I should (I'm too busy answering questions) but still.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 19, 2013 5:44:31 AM PDT
And a demented child, at that.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 19, 2013 5:54:49 AM PDT
I emailed them, too, mentioning that 1) I would stop reviewing, and 2) I would delete my current reviews to make the GIANT PICS go away.

Don't know if they care about the reviews aspect, but...

CBRetriever says:
what does it look like if you have lots of reviews?

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 19, 2013 5:58:33 AM PDT
Like an ad slick page in the newspaper from your local discount store.
