Calibre Get Books opens web browser, what to do next?

Post by jcoles » Sun Aug 12, 2018 7:01 am

The Calibre "Get Books" function finds the Kindle book I want. But all it will do is open Firefox to the Amazon page where I can buy the book. The Amazon page confirms that I already own this book. I can switch back to Calibre, but I see no way to get Calibre to download the book. I can find nowhere in Calibre to enter my Amazon credentials. Am I missing a configuration step?

I read books in Kindle Cloud (via firefox), but I want an offline solution. Kindle Cloud has a download function. That's local storage but web access to Amazon is still required. Does anyone know where downloaded Kindle Cloud book files are stored?
