Adobe dropped support for Flash for Android in August 2012. So, any new Android Devices do not have Flash. You can install Flash and a Flash compatible web browser on your Fire manually. Here are the instructions:

To install Flash: (You have to have a Flash compatible browser in order to install Flash. You can't install it under Silk.)

Do the following on the Fire/Fire HD itself:

Swipe down from the top > More > Device > Allow Installation of Applications.

Install ES File Explorer: ES File Explorer

Download and install the Dolphin HD and Flash Player apk files from this link:

Once both files are downloaded to your Fire, open ES File Explorer and look in the "Downloads" folder. You should see both files there. Install Dolphin HD *first* by tapping on the icon. Then Install Flash.

**Note that I added the APK file for ES File Explorer to the dropbox link. Some people were having issues downloading and installing it from the Amazon Appstore. If you can get it from the Amazon AppStopre, that's easier.**
