Why has the web browser screen on my Kindle Fire stopped rotating?

I just got my Kindle Fire 2 days ago… After waiting since Christmas for it to be in stock at Target again. All has been going well, then today at lunch I was playing around with watching a movie with the Kindle being held horizontally. Now, any time I try to browse the web my screen won't rotate so I can hold the Kindle vertically. All my other screens are rotating like normal depending on how I hold the Kindle, just not the web browser. Any help or suggestions on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

First, go to Settings. There should be a screen rotation lock widget that you can toggle. If that doesn't help, try rebooting it - hold down the power button until it asks if you want to shut it down. Confirm this and let it sit for 30 seconds or so and then power it back up.
