How to Clear Cookies and Browsing History on Kindle Fire HDX

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.

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.

2. Select Applications.

3. Select Silk Browser.
