Kindle Fire Android Don't Show Google AdSense Ads

Kindle FireDid you know that your Google AdSense ads won't show up for Kindle Fire users? Don't you find that interesting? The Kindle Fire runs Google's Android OS but when you try to view AdSense ads with them, you won't get them.

A Google AdSense Help thread has reports from AdSense publishers and those advertising using AdSense that the ads do not render on the Kindle Fire.

I snapped a picture using my iPhone of the iPad next to the Kindle Fire and showed how the iPad loads the ads but not the Kindle Fire:

AdSense on Kindle Fire vs iPad

Thanks for posting about this here. I will investigate and get back to you as soon as I can.

Ad blocking is a form of stealing. Amazon is stealing from publishers who run adsense ads... I think publishers should block kindlefire tablets since they fail to display ads.

The thing that will inspire a large company to stop blocking a competitor's ads is much less fear that an individual publisher will object about 'stealing', and much more that the competitor will threaten an antitrust action.

It is pretty well known that Amazon seriously tweaked Google's Android platform to suit their needs, and this is one big byproduct.  While it does definitely pose an issue for Adsense publishers and advertisers, Amazon really is not doing anything wrong.   Android is open-source...that is it's big selling point, so people who feel Google will be able to anything about this will be sorely disappointed.

It's not just Adsense that is not displaying on Kindle Fire browser, but also: 1) standard ads hosted in Google Ad Manager (DFP for Small Business), and 2) content hosted in Google App Engine. i unchecked 'Accelerate page loading", does not work. i downloaded and tried dolphin and opera mini browser, still does not work.
