I just upgraded to the newest version of Firefox for Android however the downloader does not work for certain sites such as Brighton.com. not one video downloader that Mozilla offers works for Android not one I've tried all of them. So I downloaded an exe file so I can download some videos to watch offline and lo and behold Firefox won't let me open it this is ridiculous and I realize you guys are volunteers if you know anybody and supervisory positions and Mozilla let's start a position to fire every one of them and get somebody in there that's confident that can run a website where you can do things that you normally used to do this is ridiculous they offer add-ons that don't work and then they block you from putting the exe files on your phone so you can download a video. I give up to hell with Firefox Google all of them I'm going to Linux this is ridiculous ever since Firefox merged with Google they have become just as big a tyrant as Google y'all have a wonderful day and thanks for letting me vent you know time is a precious commodity you can never get it back only God can give time and I've wasted over an hour tonight trying to download one damn video and Firefox blocks me every way they can I'm done good riddance Mozilla

You can try the VLC media player for Android to see if that app can play the videos.

Hi

Files that end with .exe will not open on an Android device - you will need to open them on a Windows computer.
