Amazon Fire TVs won't ask for your WiFi password during setup

Setting up a new device can sometimes be time consuming, as you need to unwrap it, plug it in, and go through the installation process before you can finally use it. To smoothen these steps, Amazon has created its "Frustration-Free Setup" program with "Wi-Fi simple setup", so you won't have to spend time authenticating when launching a new Alexa-enabled device for the first time.

Every deal season, one thing you can depend on is that Amazon will place its first-party Kindle, Echo, and Fire hardware on discount.

Amazon Fire TV gets new Alexa interface with latest update (v5.2.6.6)

With the release of the Fire TV Cube in June, Amazon also debuted a more minimalistic interface for Alexa. The new UI has been exclusive to the Cube up to now, but the version 5.2.6.6 update for Fire TV and Fire TV Stick devices brings them in line with their square-sided sibling.

Firefox comes to the Amazon Fire TV for browsing, and YouTube obviously

When one door closes, another opens. For Amazon, this couldn't be anymore true. With Google pulling its YouTube app from the Fire TV and Echo Show, Amazon users were left with few options to watch their favorite channels and discover new videos. Now that's changing with the release of Firefox on Fire TV.

The browser is available for 2nd gen and newer Fire TVs and Fire TV Sticks, and although it's aimed at US customers, it's accessible to everyone. It's not the full-fledged Firefox experience, though, so don't expect a home page, bookmark sync, extensions, or any of those fancy features you use on the desktop.

Earlier this year, Google blocked YouTube from working on the Echo Show, and later partially restored the functionality after talks with Amazon. Meanwhile, Amazon Prime Video still isn't compatible with the Chromecast or most Android TV devices.

While the 3rd generation Fire TV started shipping last month, Amazon just announced the new Fire TV Stick Basic Edition. Problem is, there's absolutely nothing new about this at all.
