I have an issue using my Kindle tablet on GTT.

 

I can read everything fine, but when I go to reply, the cursor and key board don't come up. If I tap on the reply box, sometimes a colored box will temporarily appear and go away but no keyboard comes up.

 

Am I doing it wrong?

I have a Fire, never used it much, kind of hard for me and small.  They recently made some sort of Update which comes to it free if you are on a Wifi spot using it. Not sure if it will help things or not. I don't even know how to use most of things on it. Seems it is more for Reading and movies/music stuff really, mostly gotten from Amazon and I don't care much for those things on my puter. I would like a diff Notebook really, but Wife bought this one and says I don't need another!  Isn't there supposed to be a "help" site to go to for info and instructions for those? Seems link is in he machine?  Sorrry, couldn't help more, not a tech kinda guy!

 

One thing else, I find it is kinda SLOW to connect to web, maybe just a longer wait to jump around then? Try waiting a moment longer and see what goes on. I have used mine for posting, and find some words I used must have been changed by spellcheck or something and is totally diff word than what I wanted to be there and is all wrong when I read the post later!  It doesn't show up as corrected on the pad, yet when posted here is diff. Never figured that one out!

I wonder if the mobile version of the site or tapatalk or forum runner would help out here.

Top left of the screen, hit the three lines symbol. Scroll down to Settings. Next screen, scroll down under Advanced. Make sure Enable JavaScript is active, and also Prompt for Experimental Streaming Viewer.

Huh, Kindle has the degree° symbol on their keyboard.

???  On mine, the three bars is on the bottom. When clicked, settings, saved data, behavior, and advanced is on one long menu. Enable Java is already on and there is no prompt for yada, yada.

I have never used a Kindle. I would imagine though they would have tapatalk available for it?
