Downloads do not work

File downloads in Firefox Preview for Android do not work. You try to download any file from the internet, you click on download, but the download does not start and a few minutes later you get a message saying "Incorrect Download".

Hi

Thank you for your feedback. What kind of file were you trying to download? Do you have a link I could use to replicate the issue here?

Hi

I have tried this and it appears to work okay. Would it be possible for you to try with a small file type and to be sure you are using a strong wifi signal?

I have a somewhat related problem like this. My issue is that Preview does not want to download any images.

Steps: 1. navigate to any image file online (... / site / file.jpg) 2. tap and hold on the image 3. choose "save image" 4. choose "Download"

Result: Nothing happens. And the image does not download.

I get this error on Firefox Focus as well sometimes.

In comparison, Firefox Beta instantly downloads the image with no problem.
