(Firefox Android) downloads overwrite same named files

Having an issue where if i try to download a file, if the name is the same as another file on device, it just automatically overwrites it without asking to rename or save in another location. This becomes a problem when a lot of people just name their files 1,2,3 etc. And I end up losing something important.

Is there any way to either stop the overwrite happening, or to be asked to name a file when downloading, I notice there are no download/save menus in the settings, and the advice online of going to about:config just takes me to a broken blank page.

Any help?
