How to dowload the PDF displayed in the viewer

I have opened a PDF file in the built-in viewer of FF, but I can't find a way to download it directly from the viewer. There's no download button/link/icon anywhere on iOS 13.6.1 (iPhone SE 1st gen), and the latest version of FF. I'm completely stucked because I can't open the PDF file again, for example by entering the URL in a new tab. I have it in the viewer and if I close the tab, I won't be able to open the file again because the URL had a lifetime, and it is expired now.

I can't believe the download function is missing in FF built-in PDF viewer/iPhone 2016/iOS 13.6.1. Any idea how I can do that? Thank you advance for your help. Regards

This question has come up a lot lately. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be a way to download a PDF file a this time. Hopefully, the capability will be added in the future. In the meantime, you can use Safari or Chrome.
