Hi Joann,

Do you have the Fire HD model? If so:

Brush down on the top of your screen to show the icons
Tap "More..."
Tap "Applications"
Scroll down to tap "Silk"
Tap "Block pop-up windows"

I dont have the HD model. I click on "more" and go into "applications" but do not see "silk" anywhere.

Okay, I think this'll work:
(I gave my regular Fire to my sister-in-law, so I'm going from memory.)

Tap the gear icon on the top right of the Home screen.
Tap "More..."
Tap "Settings"
Scroll down to "Block pop-up windows"

J. Leusek, I have the 1st Generation, so maybe this will work for you?

Open silk browser.
1.From the Silk browser, tap the Menu icon at the bottom
2.Tap Settings.

Do you see "Block pop-up windows" settings there?
Edited to add: Sorry, I don't have my Fire with me, sO I can't give more detailed info.

Joanne, you launch Silk by tapping the Web icon/selection.
