  1. My Fire 8 does not display the Google apps that (the tablet said) were installed and Google Play store app cycles through signing in. So I don’t have a way to delete apps that aren’t working. The Fire won’t show a list of its file when I connect it to my PC – just says “Fire” and won’t do anything else. It won’t back-up files – only gives me an option to delete. I really, really hate this and wish I’d gotten a laptop instead or a tablet that will actually do things.

  2. Uninstall grayed out on my Kindle 8 fire.
    I am so done with it.
    I want email and a browser.
    The rest of the trash that puts more $$$ into the overbloated owner of Amazon
    is of no interest to me
    They keep pestering me to buy more space
    Before I would spend one dime on it I would trash this device
