Sorry for sidetracking the thread.
No problem (with the sidetracking). this one is a replacement, of sorts (I changed to one with more memory). Both of them, plus the 8.9" I have (and my Kobo Vox and all my Sandisk MP3's) have the same issue (no Eject on any; super-slow newer software and can't figure out their memory usage - and the galaxy tab does the same on this task, so it seems to be an android trait).

the new fire seems "more android" than the last, in some ways, but also is just as screwed up (then again, most websites are only marginally compatible with any android browser, from my phone to the branded tablets to the generics tablets I have - the only reason the iPad works better is sheer numbers and execs using them at companies forcing their IT depts to support them; even then, some sites, like feedblitz, don't work).

I've had sites where you can't select the edit boxes if there is a single iframe used, others where no amount of fiddling will let you move the cursor to do an edit, etc (and iframes can also hijack any 'click' on a page, in some cases).

I do wish they hadn't screwed up the ability to see your archive on the Fire, although I don't read on it much (less now), it used to be an easy way to find a book; instead, I just use the website and send it that way (often to an eInk Kindle, instead).
