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.

Help appreciated,

Cheers, Lars Bo

How to download the PDF displayed in the viewer

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

I have been saving my passwords and logins for a whie now but am uncomfortable that anyone who touches my ios device when open can view the information. I did a search and see there is something called Firefox Lockwise which apparently requires a password, fingerprint or other security feature to allow access, how do I get this? It said touch 3 dots, there are not three dots to touch. I justtouch Passwords and it oens for all to be seen. Please help. Thanks.

I see easily the "Create Login" in the lower left corner on my PC, but am unable to see how to "Create Login" anywhere on the ios apps, either Firefox browser or Firefox Lockwise.

Now apart from that, how is it these days ? I had an iPhone 5 a long time ago and I don't remember it fondly. Sold the phone in an year. These days though things have improved quite a bit so I'm thinking of trying out iOS once more.

What I can't do without is Firefox though. I don't use it on Android as it's slow and the Preview version has some bad design choices going for it at the moment and until that's configurable to my liking, I ain't touching it.

Safari's engine isn't slow though from what I've heard so it should be decent, right ? I know it doesn't support extensions and only has AdBlock Plus going for it, but that's enough for me. Both Safari and Firefox have content blockers (FF having better ones from what I've heard) so it should be okay.

Still, it would be good to hear from people with actual on hand experience.

I switched to a new phone and can no longer view my passwords and logins. The app prompts me for a 6 digit passcode but I don't know it or how to reset it. On my older phone, I viewed all my logins with touchID, but my new phone doesn't have that feature.

A friend gave me this computer (Dell Vostro). I no longer have contact with this person. I'm running Windows 10. I just installed Norton 360 Deluxe and Norton Password Manager. When I was configuring the new software I kept running into messages preventing me from changing certain values that said that these values were controlled by the Organization but I couldn't figure out how to delete that Organization. I've had the machine more than 5 years and never encountered this issue before. Anyone out there know about this and what I can do about it?

I recently downloaded AdBlocker on my iPhone and loved how it integrates with Safari. Then I discovered Firefox Focus. It integrates too. So my question is:

Can I use Firefox on iPhone (the regular version) with an ad blocker add-on?

I'd prefer to use Firefox instead of Safari, but I don't want to see ads. And Firefox Focus isn't a full browser. I can't login and sync and all that.
