I just got my Kindle Fire HD to realize that the Android app is missing a critical feature: the ability to go back!

I can only go back once? If I accidentally click a link in a book as I just did in the ISBE, I can't go back to where I was.

With the iPhone app, I can just bring up the top bar and click the back arrow next to the reference bar then click back as many times as I need to with no issues. Why doesn't the Android app have that feature?

Is there any kind of fix or workaround for this? It's incredibly frustrating.

Hi Madison,

I'm not sure I understand your question. You can use the Kindle's system back button to go back to where you were before you clicked the link. It should behave exactly the same as that back arrow you're referring to in iOS. We don't have that 'back' arrow in the interface on Android, since the device's back button makes it redundant. 

Hope that helps! :)

It won't actually go back though. Is it a problem with the version on Kindle Fire HD? 

I can click back to my heart's content but it won't do anything.

Very strange! It sounds like it's an issue with the HD. I'm surprised no one else has mentioned they have the same issue. 

I know we have a few users here on the forum with the HD -- can one of you check for us?

Very weird. I'd like to hear from other Fire HD owners as well. Is there any way to set a default highlighter document like I can on iOS?

This problem still hasn't resolved itself (not that it would) and no updates have been released...

Hi Madison,

Just a question -- that Kindle Fire menu button grabber -- are you tapping on it, or swiping it up? If you swipe it up, it looks like it may cause our overlay to be opened (which is closed via pressing the back button). Try just tapping the menu button and see if it shows the back button without opening our overlay.

Wow now I feel like an idiot. That seems to work perfectly!

Now I can go on to complaining about the lack of a default highlighter document :)
