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 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

IPv6 URLs work in Firefox Mac (format is https://[fe0::1]), but not in Firefox for iOS. Instead, the selected search engine (they all do it!) searches for the IPv6 address and finds nothing useful—certainly not the URL! Am I missing something, and if so, what? If not, then I consider this to be a bug.

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.

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.
