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

How do I set Private Browsing as the default so I don't have to activate it every time I open the app? It used to just stay on private browsing all the time when opening the app until the update. Now that feature does not work anymore. Very frustrating to have to go in and look at your tabs and adjust every single time.

After update to iOS 15 this week, my previously rock-solid FF app (on auto-updates) is now crashing repeatedly on switching to the app or opening the app. I keep 6-8 tabs open for quick access which are not full of video, music, or animations. IPhone 12 mini has plenty of storage.

Quick reference between other tasks is not quick when switching to or opening FF brings up the “this is embarrassing” message and then I have to wait for tabs to reload.

Have not updated iPad yet.

I have probably over 100 tabs open on my iphone app and I want to make sure they are all saved since many of them are important. There are so many that the app often crashes if I try and go back far manually instead of just using the switch tab feature. I know there's a way on desktop to do this action but I can't seem to find a way on mobile. I am hoping that I can avoid having to manually go and bookmark each tab one by one.

So is there an easy way that I can bookmark all my open tabs on mobile?

Latest update broke usability of Firefox. Firefox no longer remembers which tab I was on before I moved away from it. It’s opening a new tab and don’t even get me started on the button movements.

There should be some minimum usability studies a product must do so that they don’t mess up too badly.

I recently noticed that when I fully close the Firefox app and open it up again, a new blank tab is created, instead of opening up to the tab I was on prior to closing the app.

Not a major issue but slightly annoying, having to close a new blank tab whenever I open the app. Thanks!

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!

Hi,

I would like to install Firefox or Firefox Focus on an iPad mini 2 which is stuck on iOS 12, but these apps require iOS 13. This seems a bit of a constraint, given than iOS 12 is not that old. It would be great to have a wider range of iOS versions supported by FIrefox, but if this is not technically possible, it would be nice to at least leave older versions available in the AppStore. That's how I could install Youtube for example: I couldn't install the latest version, but the AppStore let me install an older version still available for my iOS version.

I don't know how to route this request directly to Firefox developers (I didn't see any "Feddback" menu), but if this message reaches some developers, thanks in advance for considering this request.

Firefox worked beautifully for me to access my banking payments until about 3 weeks ago. Now I am getting the same message from it that caused me to stop using Chrome and Safari. The message is that cookies are blocked. I believe I have enabled cookies in settings although it is not stated in those terms in settings.

There seems to have been an update and now any time I start Firefox, it opens on a home page with ‘most used links’. I don’t want to see any links; seeing lots is prompts me to waste more time on the internet. I want to see a blank page like when I open a new tab. How do I do that? It seems impossible now.
