The Kindle Fire HDX is the most robust version of Amazon's entertainment tablet yet, but If you're having some freezing issues with the slate's proprietary Silk Browser, fear not. You might just have to clear your cookies, which can sometimes cause browsing problems after long web-surfing sessions. It also doesn't hurt to clear your browsing history so your friends and family can't see what you've been doing, so here's how to do both.

1. Swipe down from the top of the Kindle's screen and select Settings.
