    "Web Page Unavailable" On 1st Gen Kindle Fire

    I just did a factory reset on my ancient 1st gen Kindle Fire. Now, using the Silk browser, I can't access two web sites which I know are NOT having problems of their own: www.nytimes.com and www.llbean.com. I have a perfect wi-fi connection on the Kindle, and both of these web sites are working fine via my cell phone and laptop. I had no problems accessing both sites via the Silk browser before I did the reset. Anyone have a solution?

    The silk browser is prone to taking so long that's some pages time out as unavailable

    If you've done a reset, you've removed all the updates that have happen in the last 10 years, which won't have helped it any, so try installing up dates to see if that helps ??? A better solution may be to install another browser, try puffin(fast) browser, it's extremely fast and mostly reliable, nether of which you can say for the silk browser

    It has all pertinent updates, at least according to Amazon. But, I'm getting a lot more security warnings about mismatched certificates. So...who knows?

    That's the silk browser for you, it's security conscious to the point of being unusable, try the puffin browser, it's night and day better,

    We'll maybe you could turn it into a electric picture frame !!!

    Moore's. Law is against you, at that age / spec, what was actually quite good in 2011, is now well under powered, its only got a 1 ghz single core processor, with that it may struggle. To run a modern version of silk and or process web pages with a high data content, as devices get more wiz, web pages get heavier, as web pages get heavier, devices get more wiz, its a never ending circle.

    That puffin browser i recommended, uses an external server and data compression, meaning your device only needs to fo a quarter of the work, that silk requires it to do, so caster and smoother, you might get a few more years out of it that way
