Problem With Text Editor Using Kindle Fire Tablet


(Charles Wilmott) #1

This quite a big bug

When I try writing a message using my kinde fire tablet.

  • You can not see the text your typing in the editor. All you can see it the editor
  • The preview text on the right takes up to much room which makes it hard to see the message your typing
    in the preview and in the editor

Text entry under button bar with small viewport desktop
Discourse and Amazon Silk Browser

What browser + version? Screenshot? We only support certain browsers. I have no idea what the default Kindle Fire browser is but I suggest getting Google Chrome from its forked app store if you can.

Kindle Fire

  • the default silk browser. I know it’s the very latest version.

  • Amazon Fire HD Version 6 Tablet.

I’m not sure how to take screen shots with my tablet yet.
I find out this evening

Thanks again :blush:

Hmm, looks like Chrome is kind of difficult to get installed on a Kindle Fire tablet:

Does the default Kindle Fire browser work for you now @CharlesWil?
