Please step away from the keyboard, and back slowly away.

You're doing something wrong. I've had 4 different e-ink Kindles and have never had any typing problems.

If she's downloaded 4 different browsers, she's probably talking about a Fire of one type or another.

So you are actually talking about a Fire, not a Kindle.

There are people in this CUSTOMER forum that would be willing to help you if you had any questions. But you don't. And we aren't Amazon.

Elle, have you ever considered user error? Just curious.

If you are talking about Kindle Fires, of the 9 Kindle Fires in this house, not one of them has any issues....not even when used by an 8 year old.

Take it back to factory settings and quit messing with the browser. A Kindle is not made to do major work on. It is a media consumption device with excellent internet capabilities.

I suggest that if you want to do major work, get a proper laptop or desktop so you won't have t be frustrated.

Good point. Still, I've never had those problems on my 1st gen Fire or Fire HDX.

People should know this thing is a heap of junk.

Yet so many people like theirs.

Maybe try what CBRetriever suggested.

Millions do not have your experience.

My Fires work fine - 2 HDs and 1 HDX. Since you are unwilling to consider the suggestions offered, such as turning off autocorrect, sell it and get a Chromebook or laptop.

ROFL thanks for the laugh. Here you say you are a programmer yet you state that the Apple OS platform is Linux based. It is actually Unix based. Unix and Linux although similar are not the same.

Wipe your grubby fingerprints off the screen.

As soon as someone says they are a programmer or IT, I just assume they are worse than I am with electronics.

Well, at least the ones who come on here & don't have a clue.

Mine works fine. What am I doing wrong?

CatChat says:
it doesn't matter how many browsers you download to your kindle, if the problem is not being able to view flash videos, it has nothing to do with the kindle or the browser.
adobe flash hasn't been compatible with android devices for quite a while, (and if you've done programming for computers, you should really already know this)
try the experimental streaming viewer

FYI: August 15th will be the second anniversary of Flash's demise on Android.

" I can assure you it's not user error as I've done programming for computers!"

Uh huh. Sure you have. I totally believe you.

Programming! For computers!

So? That doesn't make you immune to user errors.

You also seem to be confused about which Kindle you have. If you're downloading browsers, you don't have an e-reader, but a tablet. If you're confused about that, I'm guessing the rest of the issues are user error.

I've been a computer programmer and have been around programmers for many years. Trust me, some of them shouldn't be allowed near an electronic device. Sure they programmed "something" but it never worked and likely created more problems for the other programmers.

It's not a Kindle that you are ranting about. It's a Fire. There is a huge difference.
