Adobe withdrew support for Flash on mobile devices in August 2012, so none of them are allowed to have Flash now. It is not something that Amazon can "fix".

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 HD itself:

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

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

Once the files are downloaded to your Fire, install and 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 by tapping on the icon.

No way Amazon can fix it. Adobe no longer supports Android devices, Amazon cannot add what they don't have permission to add.

Websites are slowly switching over to html5.

Until then you can sideload a browser that suppoerts Flash and get the flash .apk

Hi Bixillarla: Is that not what I said nearly an hour ago? Check my post above yours. :>)

This is one good article on the situation...

That is the work around. What do you mean it does not work?

When apple stopped supporting flash, Steve jobs was criticized, but he was adamant that flash was obsolete and that the world would move to html5. Self-fulfilling prophecy, perhaps.

I suspect operator error.

As nothing more than a passer-by in this thread (having read all of the posts), and your little smiley face notwithstanding, I find your comment pretty tacky. Are you trying to shame and/or embarrass another poster who is trying to be helpful? Another poster who is not a Pro, while you are? Your comment reads like you as a Pro are staking your claim to the thread, "the" answer for the OP, and of course the "Helpful" vote you hope he gives you instead of Bixillarla.

It's tacky. People other than Pros are allowed to be helpful, and at times have provided better answers than Pros did.

Of course, some of you also warn other Pros not to muscle in on your territory or contradict each other, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised. It just shows that what's actually important is getting those votes without having to share, not actually caring that someone was helped, *whoever* might help them.

Does this work on the 1st gen kindle fire?

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 4, 2012 8:55:09 PM PST
Bixillarla says:
The first gen Fires come with Flash installed already. Goto the settings and enable it.

Point to you ;-)

Personally, I don't care who helps with what as long as they give good information. What can be frustrating is when multiple people post the exact same advice, seemingly without bothering to read what the person before them posted. IMO, in this case, Bixillarla added a little extra info, so I thought it was a good post....

Bixillarla is often quite helpful. ANYTHING done to try to suppress that helpfulness is out of line, IMHO - even if the answer were word-for-word. Sometimes those badges cause people to forget that they are nothing more than another poster with a fancy sticker. We all have a right to post anything and assist anyone as long as we stay within the Amazon guidelines.

Good for you, Bixillarla. Keep helping and don't let anyone slow you down. You do a good job. <thumbs up>
