Where are photos downloading to?

Posted

I'm trying to download a photo from a web page, but I cannot tell where on my device it is downloading to. Normally photos download to a default downloaded images folder on my device, but that is not happening in this instance. I checked my general Downloads folder, but the image is not there. I can open the image from the browser for about 5 seconds as soon as I download, but the only options it gives me from there is to set the image as a wallpaper, and the "Details" selection literally only gives the dimensions of the image (not very detailed). I figured surely there would be a setting in Firefox Focus to set where photos or other downloaded files should download to, but there is no such setting to be found. How do I find this image that I have now downloaded 10 times trying to figure out the trick to locating it? Why does this app apparently lack even the most basic controls of file management?

I am on a LG G4, if it matters.

Have you tried looking in your Gallery App on your device?

On my Samsung phone, it downloads to Internal Storage/Pictures.

I suppose "Gallery App" was what I meant when I said "default downloaded images folder on my device." Typically when I save an image, regardless of from what app, the image saves, by default, into either preexisting "Pictures" or "Downloads" directories within my Gallery app. This is not occurring in this instance, I still cannot figure out where Focus is saving these images to.

I have been an Android user for 7 years now and it is mind-blowing to me just how problematic and frustrating to use it still is after this many years. App developers aren't really helping the situation.
