How do I stop a download in progress?

The item being downloaded does not appear under downloads tab given in the menu. It only shows completed downloads.

I own a Poco F1 running MIUI 12.0.3.

The problem is resolved. I started a download today and was able to see the options to pause or cancel the ongoing download. Perhaps the latest update resolved the issue. Thank you for your help.

Hi

If you swipe down from the top of the screen while a download is in progress, you should be able to cancel the download process from the Android notification.

Swiping down from the top or trying to expand the Mozilla Firefox Notification Tab in the Notification Drawer is not expanding the Tab.

Swiping down from the top or trying to expand the Floating Notification is not working either.

Yes, it closes if all downloads are finished. If there are ongoing downloads the notification simply reappears.

I am unable to use that Android notification to stop the download when it is in progress. When I tap or slide down on that notification I see no prompt to stop/pause/cancel the download in progress.

If you tap the down arrow animation next to the word "Firefox" in the notification, do you see buttons to cancel the download?
