If you don't have cookies enabled on your Kindle Fire, you may not be able to access some websites from your Silk browser and get an error message when the page loads. Sites use cookies to identify visitors and to speed up the browsing process. Some do not load at all if cookies are disabled. If you are getting a cookie alert message when you try to access a site, you need to enable cookies in the Kindle Fire's settings.

Step 1

Tap "Web" on your Kindle Fire's home screen menu. This opens the device's Silk browser.

Step 2

Tap the "Menu" button on the bottom menu of the Silk screen -- the icon for this is three lines inside a square outline. This takes you to the Settings menu.

Step 3

Scroll down through the options in the Settings menu to the Saved Data section. Tap the "Accept Cookies" box. The check in the box turns orange with a white background when you have enabled cookies.
