Differences between Amazon Silk on Fire TV and Amazon Silk on Fire Tablet / Chrome Browser
  • It is NOT possible to edit URLs in the address bar :-(, nor in the special menu “Menu”:-(.
  • As there is no keyboard, there are no developer tools to be called by keyboard key “F12” :-(.
  • URLs:
    • “about:extensions” = “chrome:/ /extensions” and “about:developer” = “chrome:/ /developer” are not valid URLs :-(.
    • However “about:” = “chrome:/ /version” exists.

Downloader @ Amazon Fire TV

      • “Downloader by AFTVnews lets you download files from the internet onto your Fire Stick and Fire TV devices. If you have a URL pointing to a file on the internet, you can enter that URL and download the files directly without having to open any webpage”.
      • “Additionally, this app also has a built-in browser you can use to download files from websites. You can also use the browser to surf the internet as you would do with any other web browser. It lets you add favorites and bookmark pages”.
    • “Official FireStick browsers don’t support downloading files from the community or third-party sources. However, the Downloader app (available on the Amazon Appstore) can download the Google Chrome APK”.
    • The app “Downloader” saves downloaded files at ”/sdcard/Downloader”.
    • You have the option to delete a downloaded and installed APK. Alternatively you may later delete downloaded files by using a file manager app.

Firefox @ Amazon Fire TV

The Browser
Receive tabs on Firefox for Fire TV
  • “Firefox on Amazon Fire TV 4.7.1”: “New! Send Firefox tabs to Fire TV”, “Neu! Senden Sie Firefox-Tabs an Fire TV” :-).
  • “Ihre Tabs. Jetzt bereit für die Hauptsendezeit. Nun könnnen Sie Tabs erhalten. Wählen Sie zunächst auf Firefox für Desktop und iOS “Tab an Gerät senden” oder in Firefox Preview “Teilen”. Wählen Sie dann Fire TV und Ihr Tab wird dort nach kurzer Zeit angezeigt”.
  • To receive a sent Tab on FireTV, if “Firefox on Amazon Fire TV” app is already running, you must quit the “Firefox on Amazon Fire TV” app. I.e. a running “Firefox on Amazon Fire TV” app can't receive Tabs.
  • The received Tab isn't stored as tile ( German: “Kachel” ), nor is it copied in the search/URL line.
