Update: just went into gmail and after closing, the bar is back! WT.
I tried the unregister/register and it didn't help. I realized that I did not install Gmail this time either, another difference from last time. Perhaps its the culprit?

I have a very good feeling it is gmail. I did not have this issue until after I installed gmail and the notifications started to come in.

That is when I started to see on instances the notification bar disappearing. Going back to the original carousel, opening gmail seems to have fixed the issue. In the play store, it says that it was updated for 7" tablets (most likely for nexus 7) but perhaps not having the proper support for the KFHD7. Uninstalled gmail and everything is back to normal.

It has been two days since my status bar disappeared. After opening GMail, it reappeared and has stayed without any more problems (knock on wood).
So... don't despair, GMail can work with the fire!

It definitely appears to be caused by Gmail. Just turn off notifications from Gmail in the app settings and you will no longer encounter the issue.

I had the same problem. I went into "Settings" and there is a section to manage Notification settings. I just turned off notifications to apps I didn't need and the problem stopped. I didn't go as far as figuring out which App was responsible but it seems that certain apps can screw it up.

Same issue. Playing with different scenarios. Worst case I will re-install from scratch.

Again, Gmail is a sufficient cause.. there may be other apps as well, but if you disable Gmail notifications it will most likely solve the problem

Thanks man! I did exactly as you described and my notification bar is back. What is causing it to disappear?

Amazon and google not playing nice. Gotta remember that you are sideloading it onto the KFHD.
