Hi

Instead of tapping on the link, I recommend that you long press on the link and a menu should appear that gives the option to download the file.

Doesn't work. If I google and results have links that are pdf just holding the link does nothing. If I tap blue line runs from to right at top of screen.

It doesn't work. When I've done it, has only appeared a file called 'invalid.txt' I'm using a samsung galaxy tab s5e I bought last december. My previous tablet was a samsung tab S2 and didn't show this problem. What can I do?

Hi

Do you have examples of websites where this is happening so that I can try to replicate what you are seeing?

Yes, of course. Herencia is an example: https://www.mjusticia.gob.es/cs/Satellite/Portal/1292429732123?blobheader=application%2Fpdf&blobheadername1=Content-Disposition&blobheadervalue1=attachment%3B+filename%3DAcuerdo_de_17_de_diciembre_convocatoria_para_la_realizaci%C3%B3n_del_segundo_ejercicio_del_21_al_23_de_enero_de_2020.pdf Hace a nice hay!!
