    Welcome to the forum.
    Unlike Kindle ereaders, you can add pdf apps on the Fire. On my Kindle Touch, pdfs are are more like reading a book whereas on the Fire I use an app called EZpdf for a much more desktop like functionality. You can use the Kindle reader app on the Fire for basic reading of pdf files or EZpdf for more in depth usage.
    All without having to upload to Amazon like on the Kindle ereaders.
    Should you get a Fire, or any other Android tablet, I'd suggest a couple of apps to help a ton. Dropbox for getting your files to your device and ES File Explorer to more easily find them once they are downloaded to your device.
    Hope that helps

    Here's a screen shot of the search engine within a document. As far as an overall all search it can be from all to specific folders or in between like recent, web based, etc.

    I am new to the kindle and electronic reading so apologies for all the questions. I have noticed in a kindle I have borrowed from a mate that the pdf document does not have the same clarity and is not as easy to read as the downloaded books has this improved with the kindle fire. Is the search facility in the screen shot shown available in a PDF DOC. Thanks

    Yes the screen shot I took is within a document.
    Kindle and Kindle Fire are as different as night and day
