the latest Firefox for Android can't download web links to pdf files any more
Hi I just noticed that the latest Firefox (version 111) for Android can't download web links pointing to pdf files any more. From the release notes, I find "You can now view PDF documents as you browse, no need to download them and open external applications anymore". This is horrible, in most time, I do want to download pdf files to my device, so I can view/edit them locally later. Plus, when the network is rate limited, the Firefox browser display nothing and seems to be frozen until the pdf file is fully received by Firefox browser which is horrible user experience. While in normal download, at least I can see the download progress and be aware if the download is interrupted or whatnot. Please revert back this "enhancement", or if you want to keep this enhancement because some other people want it, at least please provide an option on the Firefox for Android to disable it (which would be more fair to everyone). Before you fix it, I had to uninstall the latst Firefox and use the old version for the time being. thanks
