Answer to: Why do I have to tap twice on things now to open?I ran into this when I Was learning my Kindle. There is a pull-down menu at the top of the screen where the time is displayed. You will need to tap on it twice, but on the second tap, keep holding down a couple seconds until you can pull down the menu. Once you see the menu, double tap on the far right button (MORE). Scroll down to accessibility, select it, then make certain all three choices are OFF. In my case this solved the problem. I just duplicated your problem on my Kindle Fire HD7 and this procedure fixed it, so I hope it works for you as well.
