A number of unwanted foreign dictionaries have appeared in Manage my Account. In the past I have been able to delete these but Amazon has now made them non deletable. Does anybody else have this problem?

everyone will eventually be unable to delete them - if you click on the plus next to the title, you should see:

Your Kindle comes with free dictionaries that are included with your device registration. These included dictionaries cannot be deleted from your account.

my guess is that Amazon has decided to make the update routines efor kindles even simpler and eliminate the checking to see if the account has the dictionaries for multilingual kindles and replacing the missing dictionaries if they've been deleted step by making them impossible to delete

Doublell, I have just noticed these now, however I am able to delete them and will be doing so. Click on the box that says 'actions' then 'delete from library'.

If you do delete them, then Amazon will notice and put them back for you...

it's slowly changing for everyone - I can delete those from before November 2011 but any after that date, I can't delete

If any of the dictionaries were English I might be more interested. It's annoying because, although they may not be taking up space on my Kindle, it takes longer to browse through my library's list of my books.

If you change the View on Manage Your Kindle to Books you won't see the Dictionaries or User Guides.

That also hides my personal stuff too but I'll be able to manage that now. Thanks.

When you want to see your Personal Documents you can change the View again. I think the dictionaries etc., are way back on at least page 17 of Manage Your Kindle for me and I never venture that far anyway so don't see mine.

That's right - you can't delete them. Just ignore them.
