Close All Open Browser Tabs on Kindle Fire

Here I have 10 different tabs open. Rather than close each one individually, I want to close them all at once. All you need to do is tap and hold the close button (X) on any of the open tabs. When you release your finger from the X on the tab a message will come up to close all tabs. Press it and all tabs will close.

    yep, it may work on a fire phone, but not the kindle fire HDX.

      I have a kindle fire hdx as well, no arrow either. So what’s the solution. Open windows slow down my kindle.

    I had this problem as well with my Fire 7” bought just a few weeks ago. it was a real pain…until i ‘zoomed’ in by pinching the screen and then tapping on the ‘X’ Seemed to help enormously…

    What ‘navigation arrow to the left?’ Which Fire tablet have you got? Can’t be the new 7”…there’s NO navigation arrow at all. Explain please?

    No arrow? Press on one of the x-es and hold. Close menus pops up.

      Works fine if you have a ‘responsive’ screen…sadly at this price my Fire takes a lot of ‘tapping’ on the X to have any affect…I guess you pay a cheap price and live with the consequences…having said that it works pretty well for casual viewing and saves booting up my desk-top. I should have bought the Lenovo Tab 7”. My local retailer has it on sale for ten pound more than the Fire. and I believe it has ‘face recognition.’ What’s not to like?

    I have cheapest Fire too. Repeated tapping works sometimes but holding on x works every time. Hold for one second and clear all tabs me u pops up.
