Is there a possibility to download files directly to the external usb drive in Firefox for Android?
I have the Android device that support external usb hard drive, when I want to download some files via Firefox there are only two possible "places" where I can put the files - external memory or SD card. It will be nice if there would be an option to save file on ext. usb drive.

Yeah I don't know about this and I don't have an Android device that supports USB storage.
What Android device are you using and what operating system (Jellybean? Ice Cream sandwich ?)
I asked the Mozilla QA folks and they said Firefox for Android uses the Android platform download directory so the USB drive *should* show up if it registers properly with Android.
They suggested the following:
- removing the SD card and seeing if it shows up in place of the SD card.
- perhaps changing the following preference (type "about:config" in the url bar without the quotation marks)
will fix it (WARNING:untested and unsupported but hopefully this might help)
Regardless I suggest filing a bug at (I looked but couldn't find a bug that corresponds to this):
Hi, Thanks for reply, I'll try your suggesting asp. I'm using Pivos XIOS DS Media Play which powered by Ice Cream sandwich.
