Firefox displays pdf files very nicely, but how do I save the file to my download folder?

FF help says this is done by “clicking the download link” but I cant find any download links anywhere in the FF GUI, when the pdf is displayed.

I'm sure its there somewhere, but I just cant find it..

Help appreciated,

Cheers, Lars Bo

Why can’t I find quartzbenefits.com on Firefox app? According to Quartz, its page is available for Firefox, too. Note: I used Firefox for a long time, and stopped after getting a new phone, and now I already have the Firefox app. There are a lot of changes now. I am using the app to access the benefits on quartzbebefits.com. The result 0?! I have signed up for an account with Firefox already. What else could prevent me from finding quartzbenefits.com?

On the current version of Firefox for iOS, I cannot download a PDF. If I long-press the link to access the PDF, it shows the correct preview and I click download, but it downloads some much smaller blank file. If I click on the link instead (to open it in Firefox), the “Share Page With” does not give the full list of save options I need to save the PDF. I can click Print and then pinch-zoom-out the PDF to open it in a way that allows me to save it, but that puts unwanted text in the header and footer. Isn’t there some way to simply download a PDF with Firefox on iOS!?

Hi,

I have opened a PDF file in the built-in viewer of FF, but I can't find a way to download it directly from the viewer. There's no download button/link/icon anywhere on iOS 13.6.1 (iPhone SE 1st gen), and the latest version of FF. I'm completely stucked because I can't open the PDF file again, for example by entering the URL in a new tab. I have it in the viewer and if I close the tab, I won't be able to open the file again because the URL had a lifetime, and it is expired now.

I can't believe the download function is missing in FF built-in PDF viewer/iPhone 2016/iOS 13.6.1. Any idea how I can do that? Thank you advance for your help. Regards

When I have a pdf file displayed, there is no way to save it. I found a workaround on this forum (using share/copy and then paste in the files app), but this does not always work. Also in that thread, it was noted that the issue has been resolved, but this is also not (always) the case. Case in point: when traveling to Germany, because of corone, one has to register at einreiseanmeldung.de. This is a questionnaire, which in the end produces a pdf which has to be saved in order be be allowed access to the country. However, both the button giving access to the file and the displayed file itself give no way whatsoever to download it in FireFox for iOS (or rather iPadOS). Moreoever, one cannot just keep this tab open, as a link in the pdf has to be clicked to upload a test/vaccination result, and this link also cannot be opened in a new tab. In the end, due to the issues with FireFox, I had to reregister on this webpage (via a different browser), which may lead Germany to believe two people are entering and to send me double the forms.

Please add thus very basic functionality!

How do I prevent Firefox from openning app on my iPhone when clicking on link, or show a pop-up to ask if I want to open the app. There are hidden ads on a site that will always trigger when I tap anywhere and will open an app installed on my device.

Mis-information, is not only detrimental to one’s credibility, but often effects real-world harm, further lowers quality of life.

Why Firefox insists upon the position that it’s browser-extensions are incompatible with iOS is inconceivable, not to mention dis-ingenuous.

Lately here have been issues surrounding character in relation to the Firefox brand, my former go-to, that have incrementally caused me to explore and develop new browsing tendencies.

And though this is certainly not a deal breaker, it is a lot like the straw that broke the camel’s back.

Yours Truly

If y’all sincerely don’t know how to incorporate your extensions into iOS, please email me, and allow me to melt your mind… [email]@outlook.com
