Kindle Fire blocking the Forum?

Post by Derrick » Mon Mar 05, 2018 2:49 pm

I've heard from someone that their access to the forum has been a problem since they started using a Kindle Fire. They have also had problems accessing EBay, Gumtree and other forums using the Kindle.

Has anyone else been using a Kindle Fire, if so, do they get problems using it's browser?

Yep, I gave up using the browser on mine for other than kindle stuff. I will stick to my iPad!!

I think its something to do with the browser being a cut down mobile browser and struggling to process certain type of embedded web code.

From what I've read, it may be a deliberate policy on the part of Amazon to make the Kindle Fire's OS incompatible with its rival's apps (eBay, Gumtree, etc).
