Android 13 / Firefox 111.1.0

Since a short while it seems that Firefox for Android opens pdf-files directly in the browser instead of offering the download option (as it used to be). My Samsung Tab6 Light shows the pdf in compressed fonts, thus it is mostly unreadable. How can I download the pdf instead of viewing it? Or: How can I download the pdf to save it on my device? If I tap the opened pdf a function 'Share' is offered, but then when I try to share via Email nothing is shared!??

Thank you kindly for any support in this. Ueli (Switzerland)

Can not save images from Google Images, by holding down on the image, and then tapping save image. The menu simply does not pop-up. Holding down on the image results in selection of the image description below. Sometimes you can not save it form the website either, but that is because of website configuration and you can not save it on other browsers, but on other browsers you can save from Google Images by holding down on an image, so it is only the issue of Firefox and not the Google Images website. This issue seems to be present for over 2 years based on online feedback, and it is still not fixed.

I was looking for the settings button on the Firefox Android app but cannot find it in its usual place in the meatball menu in the bottom right (I have the search/tabs bar set at the bottom of the screen). Please see attached screenshot. Could you please let me know where the settings button has been moved to? I can't find it by myself, and as this seems to be a relatively recent change I can't find anything online/in the FAQ about where it might have gone. Thank you! :)

Hi All,

On desktop I have uBlock Origin and in the Sync list option "add ons" it ticked.

On Android I can't see "add ons" in the Sync list option and if I go to the add ons settings I can only see the Recommended. uBlock Origin is listed but it looks like I have to install it again on Android, it is not automatically there.

Is this normal? Do I have to reinstall it?

Thanks
