    The kindle application for mac works intermittently for me. I've uninstalled it and reinstalled it a few times. Sometimes the icon just bounces in the dock for a while and then just vanishes. Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    When you reinstall, are you re-downloading it from the website each time or taking the application off a disk image you have saved since the first time you installed it?

    I tried both ways. I wonder if it uses silverlight and there may be a conflict. I'll have to see if it happens after or while hulu or netflix is running.

    Thanks for the reply!

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't use Silverlight.

    There might be a bad preference file.

    Thanks. I'll check to see if the permissions, etc are good.
