Hi

What happens when you try to download files from those sites? Is there any error message?

more options

No error message, puts the file in a window or tab I can see but nothing I can do with that and not downloaded. Sites where it works gives me a download box at the bottom, click it and the download happens just like before, this is new, it worked fine just a couple weeks ago.

Are the files available in the downloads folder on your Android device?

You can download it using the Share option.

I tried the share option already, but I only got a label for the file, not the file itself. Even if that worked, it is ridiculous to go through all that to perform such a basic task. If that is the solution, then the actual solution is to get rid of firefox and use another browser. I hate crome but at least it works.

In addition to the download problem I'm also having difficulty with Bass Pro Shops website, if I try to sign on or place an item in my cart, it freezes the site, impossible to work with. I suspect these issues are due to a recent update as none of this was trouble I think even a couple weeks ago.
