              Sdtim I moved you to the Installing Flash Player forum.  The users in this forum maybe able to answer your question regarding the installation of Flash Player.  You may also want to consider contacting Amazon with your inquiry as well.

                I just came across this same problem needing the Flash player for reading digital magazines on Zino.com. Amazon's suggestions didn't work for me. But it might for you. This is what Amazon wrote back regarding my inquiry:


                Amazon Silk web browser on Kindle Fire HD doesn't support Flash.

                Some sites use alternative web technologies to Flash in their mobile versions. We recommend switching to mobile view when browsing a website with Flash content to see if that solves your problem:

                1.  From the Silk browser, tap the Menu icon at the bottom of the screen.

                2.  Tap "Requested website view" and select "Mobile."

                Some popular websites may also have an app available. Check Amazon Appstore, accessible through the Apps or Games library on your Kindle Fire, for availability.
