Chosen solution

In Android's settings > apps > Firefox menu, there should be an option for storage. In there you can clear the app's storage which should reset Firefox to factory settings.

That said, if I understand correctly, it sounds like the photos app is opening when you try to download an image. Would you be able to provide a bit more information on what's happening?

You can also have a look at the app defaults in settings > apps > advanced (at the bottom) > default apps. Optionally, the "Opening links" section there may be useful.

These steps may differ for your version of Android, if so have a look online for how to do them on your version.
