I currently have Firefox for Android that I was able to download a couple months ago via fennec (version 68). I do not have nor do I wish to have a Google Account, which is required in order to utilize Google Play. Does anyone have a safe, secure way to get the later versions? The fennec link is still at version 68, and it appears that it will not be changed. Thanks

I am starting a new thread even though I saw a lot of people are having this issue with the latest vs of Firefox and it was never answered. Just marked as answerd.

I was trying to download a pdf from my banking app which never had an issue before. I get the download failed in the notifications dropdown men. I don't know if it makes any difference but it's always 2 messages and they recur every day. Not sure what It was that I was trying to download this last time but it's still trying to get the file. (pdf) I just want it to stop. I will use Dolphin or something to get files until it is fixed in Firefox. I delete cache, quit, close all tabs etc. I had already tried the uninstall & reinstall to no avail. Whatever it's still trying to get its a pdf also. Note 9 One UI 2.0. Android 10

Persistent download failure status is a security breach

The current Android Firefox version cannot be cleared of a failed status on a file download. It survives any attempt to clear the browser, rebooting the device, or clearing the Firefox cache.

It appears relaunching Firefox with this persistent status will result in the download being attempted again, with another notification of whether the download was successful or not.

This can be of the utmost concern where, for example, someone might be located in a restrictive and/or monitored environment, and has attempted to download a controversial file while using a VPN. Subsequent launches of Firefox with the VPN disabled then put the request out in the open for the ISP, or government, to observe.

In my opinion, correcting this bug deserves high priority.

I have some mobile devices I will be upgrading for clients.

Everyone wants to bring their tabs, bookmarks, history, etc. to their new device, but a number of them do not want to use Firefox Sync.

In Firefox for destkop it is child's play to copy and/or move a profile. In Android it is not at all obvious. Even on devices where I have root, I don't see a folder for Firefox.

On my own phone (in both main storage and the SDCard, when mounted) I have the folder /Android/data/org.mozilla.firefox which has two sub-folders: "Download" and "temp" (both empty -- hidden files are exposed in my file manager)

There does not seem to be any other folder related to Firefox, but surely this can not be!

So, where can I find the FF for Android profile folder?

Alternatively, how can I migrate a profile (especially tabs, bookmarks, history) without using Firefox Sync and without manually copying a profile?

Thanks in advance!

hello ...

yesterday Firefox updated itself on my tablet ( hung on the charger while I was at work ). In the evening all my open tabs were closed, the bookmarks were gone and FF was set as default browser. Where did my tabs and bookmarks go ? Auto update is / was disabled - default browser is another browser for good reason. FF runs / ran there actually permanently and was only sent into the background. Because the tablet should not be synchronized because of special software, the bookmarks only exist there. Why were they removed during a normal update ?
