Firefox won't download - long press, get menu, 'save image', and nothing happens. FF 34.0.1 Android 5.0.2

As the question says - Firefox for Android ver. 34.0.1, Android ver. 5.0.2 (Google Nexus 7 2013 tablet). This problem just showed up today - I found an image on the web (not Facebook) that I wanted to save, so I did the usual long press, the menu popped up, and I tapped 'save image'. It was highlighted, and the menu disappeared, but nothing happened, no little oval bar saying 'download started', and there's nothing in the Photos or Download app on the tablet. I haven't changed any settings on Firefox or Android (other than changing my PIN), so this is a bit frustrating. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

As mentioned in [1], Firefox "Fennec" has reached "end of support" (Version 68.11.0 is the latest you can get). Its successor is Firefox Daylight (codename "Fenix"). But I can't find a place at Mozillas webservices, where I can download an APK to install Firefox Fenix on my Android mobile device.

Using Google Play is no option to me, since I want to run a privacy friendly mobile device without any Google services. Privacy is my main reason, why I would like to use Firefox on my mobile device.

@Mozilla: Please provide such an APK download location for Firefox Daylight (Fenix), as you did with Firefox Fennec!

There is already a discussion about this topic in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293461, but this topic is about "Fennec APK download" and is marked as "solved", since a "Fennec APK downloads" had been provided. And there is https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293483, talking about "Fennec nightly APKs".

Using https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/releases to download APKs seems to be a bit unreliable, since not every build has attached APKs.

So I start this new question, in order to find a solution for Firefox Daylight (Fenix) APK downloads.

Thanks you!

Google Play has updated Firefox to a new version which doesn't work as well as the previous version I had:

Start Screen I no longer seem able to customise (or I cannot find the options to do so)

Tabs are remaining open when I close the browser despite previously being set to close

My adblock plugin is no longer working

How do I go back to the previous version? Download an earlier APK and manually install?

First, I am asking because I have noticed an inconsistency between Firefox Nightly and Chromium releases. Firefox almost always outpaces Chromium in windows releases, yet Chromium is always more recent with mobile and linux releases. What I am trying to figure out is if I am missing any non-windows releases on the Firefox side.

I've found the latest windows downloads at the following link: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/tinderbox-builds/mozilla-inbound-win32/?C=N;O=D. These builds show up here before they do on the all-platform catalog here: https://tbpl.mozilla.org/?tree=Mozilla-Inbound Is that the case for other platforms, and, if so, are there downloads of similar timing available?

Mozilla quoted "Firefox has stopped development for Windows Mobile indefinitely. Thank you to our contributors for their continued support and feedback. The last release for Windows Mobile was 1.1 alpha 1 (download). We have stopped developing for Microsoft's mobile platform because Windows Phone 7 no longer allows developers to build C++ applications like Firefox, and Microsoft's new policies ban open-source software like Firefox from the Windows Phone Marketplace."

Will they now start to continue to support Windows Phone 8 because Windows Phone 8 now supports C++

I've heard a lot of good things about Microsoft opening up their platforms for developers. I literally used Firefox, Firefox sync, and enjoy Firefox as my default browser. I've seen a few posts saying Mozilla isn't currently developing for Windows Phone and I'm just wondering why. I know there is a demand for it. It would dominate the Windows Phone market for sure. I'd really like to see it come to the platform so can someone explain why specifically it isn't? What restrictions are still being faced if any?
