Sometimes i am in my brother's house and i use his wifi router to connect to the internet but i can't make regular downloads. For example: i wanted to download the desktop version of the firefox through my phone just to buy some time but i just cant get it.

Check with the company that makes your phone. Some Android phones can enable "USB Mass Storage Mode" when you connect them to your computer. When you do that you can browse the files on the phone and copy things to your computer.

Generally you can't download desktop programs on a phone because they aren't compatible. And if you can get them to download, they won't open or install.
