Lately, when I start Silk on Fire, a page will automatically appear to purchase Angry Birds, or I will get the box giving me a choice to purchase Angry Birds from the Web or the App Store. I uninstalled Angry Birds, but it's still happening. I managed to capture the redirect link. Here it is, . I still have Angry Birds Seasons Free installed. I hope I don't have to uninstall that too. I, like many others, love angry birds. We support Rovio through merchandise purchasing. I was planning on getting the paid versions of all the apps, but I hear that doesn't stop the adds. I'm now more reluctant to pay for an app that hijacks my Fire. I feel like I'm stuck in a bad relationship with Rovio.

Rovio says it's not their fault, and I should reinstall Fire. What?

It occurred to me I should do a soft reset. That seems to have fixed the problem. Maybe that's what Rovio was suggesting. English doesn't seem like their 1st language.

Maybe English does not seem like their first language because Rovio is based in Finland?
