When I go to sites requiring Flash. It says "Your Flash Player is out of date" and requires an update. But the updates are not for the kindle's "silk" browser. And some have said you can turn on Flash through the web settings but the only option that appears to enable JavaScript.website I was trying to use-- http://www.skinit.com/customizer along with other sites. Thanks for your responses in advance.

Ensure that it is enabled first:

1. With the Amazon Silk web browser open, tap the menu icon at the bottom of the screen, and then tap Settings.

2. Tap the arrow next to Enable Flash and select your preferred behavior: "Always on,"

If it is set to Always On, that means it's working but there is no update for it. Contact Amazon to see if there is an updated Flash for it (which I doubt there is because Adobe stopped making Flash for Android).

Hey baby. Not to worry.
You don't need to download Flash to the Kindle Fire. It's included. With the 6.2.2 software upgrade, however, Flash support in the Silk browser is turned OFF by default. Run the browser, go to settings, turn it on (or better yet, On Demand).
Your Kindle Fire already has the latest Adobe Flash Player installed, When the Silk OS updates, it sometimes resets things, so Flash is disabled. Here's the easy steps to turn it back on.

Open your web browser to any page.
Click on the Menu icon in the bottom center of the screen.
Choose Settings
Scroll down until you find Flash.
Click on Flash to re-enable it, and your'e good to go!

The old Kindle Fire released in 2011 still comes with Flash support, but new Kindle Fire doesn't. It's because any Android 4.0 or later tablets no longer support Flash. But you can sideload some browser to make it works. See a detailed discussion below:
