Whenever I go to "Save file to device" on a picture, video, etc., there seems to be unnecessary delay, as though it is downloading the already downloaded file all over again. Confirmed by disabling wifi, trying to save an already completed file, and a message "Download failed" appearing.

Well, this is not so good. Wastes my bandwidth, and takes more time than it needs to.

To the point, how do I get the browser to just save the file that is already downloaded and cached, instead of redundantly downloading it again?

There are no controls visible to enlarge the picture.

When I search Google from the address / search bar in Firefox Android, the progress bar goes to about 30% and stops for a long time before loading the page.

Worse, every page I click in the search results behaves the same way.

Same behavior just opening www.google.com.

Other sites load fine, just anything that starts with a Google URL is severely hobbled.

Same on mobile and Wi-Fi. Desktop PC on same Wi-Fi network is not affected.

I installed the Firefox Browser on my Samsung galaxy s9+ today and can't find a home button anywhere. Every time I want to go back to the firefox home screen I have to waste time by pressing the 3 dots in the top right corner then hitting the back arrow repeatedly until I get to the home screen. Or I have to open a new screen and if I don't close the other screens I just get a bank up of search screens.

Is there any way of adding a home button to the tool bar as I find that not having one is annoying and a bit of a deal breaker which means going back to chrome and that sux.
