So, my company uses Flash extensively in its training program. IF Amazon had made it PLAIN that the Fire 2nd gen and above did not support flash, I never would have wasted money on it.
How many people have bought a Fire only to find that it does not deliver the promised quality?
How can we, as a group of customers (remember, the customer is always right) get Amazon to make a Flash upgrade for the Fire 2nd gen and above?

You do realize that Adobe (the maker of Flash) is no longer supporting Flash on mobile devices, right?

Follow the instructions in this thread to get flash working.

How does Adobe no longer supporting mobile Flash equate to Amazon not delivering promised quality, exactly?

If you couldn't bother to look for that information before you bought a device, that is your responsibility in spite of a generous return policy that will cover the mistake you made.

None of the new tablets with Android 4.1 or higher have Flash installed. You can side load it and use it in a different browser but it isn't installed. And sideloading probably won't be available all that long.

Flash is a dying technology. My guess is that in a year or two it'll simply cease to exist. It's already being replaced by HTML5 on most websites.

I think this might be a case where the customer is wrong. :)

Amazon as well as ALL other tablet makers don't have a choice to do it. Adobe has pulled support for Flash on all mobile devices. So how do you plan on making a company do something they cannot do?? Magic?? Threats of torture?? And no the customer is not always right as is obviously the case here. I suggest doing a little homework in the future before buying any device and make sure it has what you want. Pretty simple to do.

you cannot - you can, however, turn off auto-correction and next word prediction by pressing on the space bar until a menu comes up, select keyboard settings and turn everything off.

out of curiosity, why did you post twice? This is a forum for users to help other users and there's not always someone here to provide an immediate answer. As a matter of fact, I almost didn't open this thread because it was about Flash.

I bought my 2nd generation Kindle Fire so I could search for airline flights on my employer's web site. My wife's 1st generation Kindle Fire works perfectly. For whatever reason, my 2nd generation Kindle Fire will not allow access to my employer's web site. The 2nd Generation KINDLE FIRE IS AN INFERIOR PRODUCT THAT NEEDS TO BE FIXED!

I also purchased Kindle HD and was very upset when I received the device to know that Flash is not supported. Now, so many websites I cannot use because there is no Flash support.
I was ripped off!

Adobe dropped flash support for Android. No current android tablet will have it. The ipad has never had it.

How exactly were you ripped off?? You had 30 full days to return the Fire for a full refund.

You can get flash on your kindle fire hd through a process called sideloading. Read this:

Seriously? It has been quite some time since *ADOBE* not Amazon supported Flash on android devices.

Looks like I jumped the gun. I too quickly complained about my kindlefire HD not having Flash. Then, after I started to read this discussion board, I leaned how to setup Flash to work on my kindlefire HD and it's working great.
