Bug that deletes existing download when cancelling another ongoing download

I keep running into this bug where, on the odd occasion I am trying to download a file and the download occurs slow sometimes from the server's end, I might start a download of the same file twice. Then when one finishes downloading, if I press cancel on the ongoing download, it deletes the other downloaded file from my storage. This probably happens because the files are named the exact same but cancelling a downloading file should not delete an already downloaded, different file.

By default, Firefox only downloads directly to the internal storage, and not the micro SD card I installed. Its become tedious to manually move everything to save phone space every time I download anything.

All the past forums said to use about:config, but I understand the newer Firefox removed that function as it would break the app due to some major internal changes.

Please add the function to set a download path for Firefox to send my files to, including to my SD card.

I need to change the download folder from my phone intern memory to my SD card, but I don't see the option to do it, I've seen forum post of people saying It can be done by entering about:config in the browser, but that doesn't work.

This is a new issue that just started occuring this month Nov/2023. Firefox for Android has suddenly developed an issue where instead of saving to the download folder and renaming the file with (1), (2), etc. It will save to a random folder and overwrite an existing file with the same name.

Noticed occuring on ebay images because they have the same naming structure.

For the past week or so (Firefox app was last updated around 1st September I believe), my Sony XZ2 phone has restarted itself after saving a picture off the Internet. The new update today didn't fix it. The phone screen goes blank, then the background reappears with the app icons and it reconnects to the internet again. Just like pressing the restart button but much quicker. I've tried other Internet browser apps with saving the same picture and not had it happen. Not sure if it's just a coincidence that the problem has coincided with the last update though.

  1. 1- last week Firefox was blocking me from accessing certain sites that I always go to.
  1. 2- I cannot access about:config. I've tried signed in and out as well as with different search engines and I just get a blank screen. Help?
  1. 3- is it normal for FF to have permission to download files without notifying? I checked the permission list and seemed like there is alot of dangerous and malicious permission allowed as system permissions. Please help?
  1. 4- when I log in and check devices, 2 new logins show up. One says my phone's model # and the second one says logged into Firefox browser or something like that. Is it normal to have duplicates like that when I only use my Android phone?
  1. 5- I've tried and cannot find any way to login to my network or make any network changes? Please help?

I commented on play store and was told to send my question on here so they could be investigated more. Thank you for your help.
