By default, Firefox only downloads directly to the internal storage, and not the micro SD card I installed. Its become tedious to manually move everything to save phone space every time I download anything.

All the past forums said to use about:config, but I understand the newer Firefox removed that function as it would break the app due to some major internal changes.

Please add the function to set a download path for Firefox to send my files to, including to my SD card.

I can’t get the app on iOS to download without a messed up bookmark setting, which means the settings button will not open! Please offer a solution? I installed and reinstalled, plus I’ve tried to delete files folder etc, but the iOS download is holding onto the old file system, which I messed up. I purposely restarted a brand new account, after five to six years of using my old account, but that changed nothing. The bookmarks aren’t even holding on to Mozilla Firefox desktop site book markers?

As the title says, is there a way to edit file's name before downloading it? Any extension or anything? As in, e.g I'd like to download a photo but change it's file name before I do so, so I don't have to go into files app on my phone in order to modify it. (Sorry if it's easy to do and I just can't find it but I'm super new to Mozilla and used Opera Mobile before, which had that option, so I'm used to it)

This is a new issue that just started occuring this month Nov/2023. Firefox for Android has suddenly developed an issue where instead of saving to the download folder and renaming the file with (1), (2), etc. It will save to a random folder and overwrite an existing file with the same name.

Noticed occuring on ebay images because they have the same naming structure.

Whilst sending a link from my Proton drive to others i have realised Firefox (latest version on ios also latest version) does not manage to do a basic fundamental task, I triple checked all the basic settings that could interfere, cleared caches etc etc

It flashes up a warning pop up, i click download, It reaches 100% then opens up a blank window, No file inside any download folder on iphone. It's a 200mb audio file, uncompressed.

I tried with Safari & instantly achieved the download even running a VPN, Firefox is my default browser on desktops & mobile devices for sync etc so this is very inconvenient.

Answers would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

After updating Firefox for Android, my phone started rebooting after downloading any file. This makes it very difficult to use the browser and I had to use Chrome temporarily. The Crashes tab in About Firefox is empty. I tried to collect a logcat and uploaded it to Google Drive (maybe this will help somehow.): https://drive.google.com/file/d/1kmdS5rTH3r0u09KLxeUDeY5U8r5xiEK1/view?usp=sharing. I hope this information is helpful in solving the problem.
