    missing buttons re. kindle

    hi ...

    don't know whether i should ask amazon or microsoft or firefox about my problem with kindle's page in amazon using windows 8 and firefox as my browser.

    anyway ... here goes .........................

    i run a desktop running windows xp with firefox and d/l books onto my kindle without any problem. so far, so good.

    i also run a laptop running windows 8, firefox and TRY to d/l books but 2 buttons don't show up on the amazon screen, namely "Buy now with 1-Click" and "Add to wish list" until late yesterday because i couldn't see any 'download' button.

    i only found out when i had both computers showing the same screen and only then did it became clear.
    so, at the moment, when i pass the cursor over the particular area and click, the download starts. that's fine but it's not right.

    so ... my question is this ... how can i get these two buttons to become visible in the amazon screen on the windows 8 laptop?

    any help would be most appreciated.
