How to download a file under link in FF?

Posted

there is a 'save target as...' popup menu option in "big" firefox, which I use to skip default action for specific files. I.e. to download a pdf file to read it later instead of open it in acroread right now.

How can I get the same function in mobile version of FF?

Thanks a lot.

Since the last update I've got the same problem. When I click a download link (mp3), instead of downloading the file FF opens a new tab and start playing the mp3. This is not what I want. I want to download the file at home so that I can listen to it later when there is no internet connection available. When I long click the download link there are some options, but there is no option "save link as".

Now I have to use Chrome to achieve my goal.

Please help!
