Save download to iCloud Files app
When I download a file, I can save it to Dropbox, but not to the iCloud Files app on the iPhone. Is it possible?

This is a bit awkward, but it works.
With the file downloaded, select
1. the three dots at the end of address bar 2. Share Page With. . . 3. Copy 4. Open the Files app, hold your finger on the screen until the menu appears, select Paste.
Thanks for the reply. However it’s not working. After I copy the downloaded file and switch to files app, long pressing only brings up the following options: New Folder Scan documents Info.
There’s no paste option. I’ve tried it multiple times.
Interesting. I was able to duplicate my steps on a different document (pdf file size 178 KB) with the same result. Also, I was able to replicate your results by attempting to paste to the Files app prior to copying anything to the clipboard (since there was nothing to paste, I wasn’t shown that option). My next thought was there might be a limit to the size of the file that can be copied/pasted. Based on my search results, this doesn’t seem to be the case.
I tried again and was successful, albeit under certain conditions. It seems either the Files app or Firefox does not allow .torrent files to be copied and/or pasted. I can paste .pdf's, but when I try to paste a ubuntu .torrent file it will not work.
Aha. If you do a search on "ios files .torrent" (no "), you'll learn why it doesn't work.
