I downloaded music files using Android version, but FireFox does not use same downloads folder. when I access these files in FireFox, no option to move them to the folder where I want them - or do anything else with them except delete. when i try to find them, I get no results using the file name displayed by Firefox. I can't find any way of finding out where FireFox stores files, or to change this default. we're talking about approx 50 MB here, which I had to pay a lot of bandwidth to download.

I've found all sorts of people asking this for the desktop version, but what about for mobile? The autofill information gets in the way of the rest of the screen on phones, so is more harmful than useful, and I'd like to disable it, but I can't figure out how. Thanks.

How do I "Save As" a file?

Scenario: I used Barcode Scanner to scan the barcode for some software (an Android .apk) file. It offered me: - Email to someone - SMS to someone - Open in browser

So I did the third. It then asked me: "Native browser or Firefox?". The native browser hands these off to the Market.

Expected Result: I assumed Firefox would do the same. Result: Firefox displays it as a big block of ugly text.

And there's no "Save As" function so I can save it to disk and open it from there! Where is the Save As function? I don't want to save as a PDF, I just want to save the file as I downloaded it.

(For bonus points, please also tell me how to alter file associations.)

How do I enter a website in address bar without triggering search via Google, etc.? Awesome Bar is great for retrieving previously visited sites - but please just let me go straight to the site I type in.

When you tap on the address bar, the awesome bar is automatically launched. The "reload" icon" changes to a "magnifying glass" icon. You are compelled to search. If you s… (read more)

When you tap on the address bar, the awesome bar is automatically launched. The "reload" icon" changes to a "magnifying glass" icon. You are compelled to search. If you select to search via the Google option then you may get a result that you can select. All very indirect. Surely there is a simple way to type an address straight in and go to that site - without the search intermediary. For example, I often type in secure websites that are not even indexed via Google. So, no useful results - and now way to access the secure sites directly.

I'm interested in modifying the userChrome.css files as well as tweaking the about protocol pages for my mobile browser. I would like to give the about:home page a dark UI to save power with my AMOLED screen as well as adding other useful links directly on the about:home page like the "Check for Updates" button from the about:firefox page. I've manage to do some modifications to an installed Fennec on my PC (~/.mozilla/fennec), but I want to move those changes to mobile.

It's difficult browsing the Android filesystem, so does anyone know where I could find this folder?
