Firefox for Android does not have a built in download manager, but this is something we are working on and may be included in a future update. In the meantime, you will be able to find your downloaded files in the “Files/Downloads” folder on your Android device.

I'm having this problem too, both on my Samsung Tablet and my LG V6. It's probabaly a coding problem somewhere. I have chrome, and it works (I don't like the spyware browser but I'm forced to use it now when I want to download because of this bug). I've tried using external download managers, but they don't work all the time.

I have the same problem here.Any file that is downloaded is prompted:Download failed,and is really not downloadable at all. This problem has existed from the old version two months ago to the new version now. I don't know how to solve the problem.I hope the kind,hard-working and lovely developers can provide some solutions,thank you very much.

Since the last big update, I can't download absolutely anything. A lot of people in this [thread] had the exact same issue described in here, but no one presented us with an answer or solution (btw, I'm pretty sure @seburo didn't actually read @anandkj's question), and they just closed it. I get it, but it really is an issue, having a browser that can't download files? It makes no sense. I'm talking images and pdfs, which are the ones I've tried, but I've also read people can't download html an so on. It just fails.

Please, we didn't run away to chrome when you changed the full interface, we don't want to do it now.

Thank you.
