That's what I am doing right now. Removing 2000+ books. more like 2500 now. I think I'll stick to the stock launcher for now.

Oh this is kinda funny the scuff marks turned out to be.....DIRT!!! There is no peeling problem!
They just sent me a unit that needed some cleaning.

I never noticed those numbers in the top row until TODAY. I also never noticed those punctuation marks above the numbers until today.

On my Kindle Fire I have a Kindle Keyboard App which was just upgraded yesterday to version 2.3.4.

That upgrade may have given us the numbers and punctuation keys. It also may have bricked Blossom's Fire if it clashed with her non-Amazon Launcher.

Her problem may not have had anything to do with the Fire Firmware upgrade to version 6.2.2.

I leave my WiFi on all the time. Some do not. Thus, some may have received the Keyboard upgrade and some may not.

I am certain that they were there from the beginning because I used them for my wi-fi password. I have always used the long press to enter the numbers because I hate switching between the character and alpha keyboard.

Yes they were which is why I must of installed something to break the keyboard. I always did fine mine a little temperamental. The new one works great! I could type a chapter with it.

The numbers were always present with the long press. However, they never showed on the keyboard. I believe the puncutation symbols were also present if one did the long press on other keys.

None of them showed prior to the Keyboard App upgrade.

I thought that too till I googled Kindle Fire Keyboard and saw I was wrong at least what it was suspose to look like. I wish I kept a list of apps I had installed so I could figure out if one of them was the cause of my Keyboard issues.

Blossom, your "new" Fire is probably faster as you have less apps installed on it. My Fire is super sluggish now and is almost unbearable as I have too many apps installed and need a "spring cleaning"

Nope. My other fire was never as quick as this one or responsive. I now have the same apps with the exception of Go! and rotating wallpaper. My old Fire when I touch something had to think a couple of seconds this one it's like I touch something and it's done. Even Mantano never works so beautifully! The power button works great I don't have to use force like I did with the old one.

The only downside is battery life seems to be shorter but I can't confirm that till I use it a couple of days.

I think your old fire may have been a bunk one in general, Blossom. Mine is very responsive when I hit a button, no waiting at all. I have a lot of apps on mine too.

Shame on Amazon for not cleaning the fire before sending it out though, geez. lol. At least it wasn't scratched though.

Yes being the germaphobe I am gave it a good cleaning when I realized it wasn't a new unit. My screen protectors will be here tommorow so we will see how they work with the Fire.

After losing a very expensive one when my first fire broke. I am just going to stick with the cheapies.

That would have been me too. I'd be washing it down. lol. I'm kinda surprised at Amazon letting them go out like that. Good luck with the screen protectors!

2000+ books on the carousel? I'm surprised it holds that many. It may not have been the cause of the problem but I wouldn't do that.
