I have now got as far as the Dolphin Browser 'Install' page by trial and error but it tells me 'You don't have any devices'. What does this mean, please

Kevin, where does it say you have to open a shopping bag icon?

The only place I know that has that icon is the Google Play Store and that's not available on the Fire. I installed the goodereader app store on my Fire HD, from, and installed Dolphin and Flash for ICS from there. It has nothing to do with Google. It's as easy as installing apps from the Amazon App Store. You will need to set your Fire to accept the installation of applications from unknown sources before you begin.

Thanks Denis for all your helpful posts. I've managed to install Dolphin and Flash, so ITV player and 4od work fine (no need to download ITV player, just change browser settings to desktop; strangely 4od seems to work better with android). However, I can't get demand 5 to work with either setting. There's just a pop-up saying "This protected content cannot be played on this mobile platform". Has anyone else had this problem, or, more importantly, solved it? I have a standard Fire, not the HD version - not sure if that makes a difference.

Thanks for posting the link. I have followed your link to the how to page successfully, but none of the links on that page seem to work. I have set the kindle to allow apps from unknown sources. The links say the download is starting but then does nothing. Any ideas please?

I'd like to know that do

If you simply want Flash on your Fire follow the instructions for installing Dolphin and Flash for ICS.

\Thanks for your really useful advice!!! I now have video clips etc working correctly on BBC News when using my Kindle Fire HD! Just a word of caution to anyone following this solution...... do enter the URL correctly!! It is: with an 'e' in the middle of the address!! I missed that out and spent an hour in all sorts of trouble!! I am sure that explains the problems listed on this thread!

The dolphin seems to work if in the USA. The UK kindle fire will not run the dolphin. It will download but says it cannot open it. If I was a techie wizard I would have purchased an iPad.

I wanted this to read and listen to audio books, which, I might adhesive been syncs but I cantons them, and then on top of this good out through a forum that I cannot get flash to watch my purchased beds. Only stream them......What a con! I have had this for 4 day now and really not impressed.

I have to travel a lot, so the whole point was to relax and watch a few films, when not in wifi hotspots..........what do people recommend????????

The Dolphin browser works fine in the UK and with the correct version of Flash installed has no problems accessing any Flash enabled website.

With the Audible app installed you get the same Audible audio book experience you get on any other tablet. Audio books from other sources play equally well.

Movies can be downloaded from several sources but the range is small at the moment. Movies copied from my satellite recorder look and sound excellent on my Fire HD.

Denis thanks for this info.... I have tried several times to download dolphin and i get sent straight to amazon and it tells me that i'm out it's range??? something about geogrphical restrictions. not sure what i'm doing wrong.

Have you enabled the "Installation of applications from unknown sources" in the Fire's settings?

Have you installed the goodereader app store?

Why won't Amazon make it easy to download the adobe Flashplayer - am I fighting a their marketing department or is there a real problem with the product? - can someone please advise. thanks.

Amazon doesn't directly develop most of the content of their stores. People are guessing that as flash is going to be dropped across the web there's little point supporting it. I have no problems with the flash content I view.

I have got my Kindle fire to play the BBC IPlayer - so I know video works just fine. But when I try and play other video clips, the Kindle Fire advises - Download the correct version of Flash player. Using the options available from Adobe - none work, so I am looking at other comments posted on this site. Several advise go to - downloading Dolphin (a new browser?) and then download the Flash player. Is this what you did to get Flash content working on your Kindle fire?? (assume you are in the UK as some comments say it is different for the US)

Yes , dolphin and flash ICS through goodereader app required. I apologise if that had not previously been answered.

Denis Powell says:
P. Bennett, Adobe have stopped selling the Licenses to use Flash so Amazon can't, legally, offer it. They announced their intention over a year ago and stopped selling the "product" in August of last year.

That's why it's not available on any of the newer Android tablets like the Nexus either.

You can still get the last version of Flash Player for Android from Flash Player Help / Archived Flash Player versions on the Adobe website. You have to allow the installation of apps from

Yes!!! After 2 days of struggling, I have managed to find all these places and download the Flash Player! I can now watch programmes on 4OD, sitting in my bed! thank you so much to the kind people who have patiently posted the instructions. The goodereader screen is confusing, you need the app store for tablets. Where I kept going wrong was that I didn't realise that once you have the Flash player on your device, you need to remember to go via Dolphin to get to whatever TV thingy you want to watch.
I'm quite excited about my new Kindle Fire HD now, because I can catch up on TV or radio programmes as well as reading books, and the picture and sound quality is great! Also the wireless signal is heaps better on it than on my old laptop, so I don't have all that 'loading......' nonsense.I may never leave my bedroom again......
