Greetings everyone,

Sorry to be creating a thread about this, but it's a serious question I need help with.

I was just about to install Firefox for my old Android phone. However, before installing Firefox it warns me that it requires access to a bunch of my personal data... :(

Why is this the case?

I currently use Google Chrome on this Android phone.

I'd really appreciate any advice.

I am creating userscript, webextension and etc. Current my script downloads several files with renaming. I know that there is some illegal character for windows file name like /?<>\:*|\". My script automatically replace this characters with full-width or remove. In android file system (like in linux) there is only one illegal character: / (used for folder address). But Firefox won't download file with name that contain characters like [],:?;*-/<|>". I use GM.download for userscript and for webextension browser.downloads.download with url and filename options. This also work like this in kiwy (android chrome with addons). Android Firefox can download file that contain this characters. This mean that you can download this file when link clicked, but can't download via userscript or addon.

Second problem is in desktop firefox if you download too many files (like 100 files) it will download 6 file at same time. But in android it download all file same time.

Like in Firefox Focus, trying to access local storage using `/sdcard` is denied or returns an error, however on the Firefox common, accessing /sdccard storage is pretty simple. Although that's pretty helpful in certain cases, however I would like that to manually disable. Are there any ways to do so, such that putting in /sdcard in the address bar returns a N/A result. (:
