Hello, this sounds like a popup issue. You can block popups on your Kindle using these steps:

Open the Quick settings menu and tap on More. Then, go to Applications > Amazon Applications. Next, tap on Silk and click the Block pop-up windows and select Always

Let me know if this helps!

Hi,

If you've already set Block pop-up windows to Always but that you continue to receive unwanted popups, try clearing your Silk browsing data. 

Go to Amazon Application Settings > Silk Browser > Privacy > Clear browsing data. Check all the boxes and select Clear Data to confirm.

Hope this helps.
