when I open the browser,one particular webpage keeps showing up in a new tab.

hey all, I clicked a link on a webpage which opened up a new tab for some advertisement. No big deal, I just closed the tab....but now everytime I go back into the browser, the tab reappears, even when I clear my history and cache. it's really weird and very annoying. Anyone else experiance this?

Yep someone else had that happen. Go to Settings\Applications\All Apps and find Silk and clear its data to fix it.

I too have had the same problem and had to clear the cache. I primarily use Opera Mobile now unless I have some reason to use Silk. (like last night to stream the Flash full episode of NCIS that my DVR had a fail on)

Do you have to sideload opera or is it in the amazon store?

Thanks! Now I just need to figure out how to sideload! Do all the apps on that site work on the Fire if you sideload them? Are there any other sites similar to this one with other apps?

Not all apps but alot of them do. Opera Mobile does. I use it. To sideload you need to install ES File Explorer from the App Store or something like it. Then just move the apk onto the fire and while in ES File Explorer. Tap it and it will install.

I use Dropbox or LAN feature in ES File Explorer to move things on to my Fire.
