Problem: I search for something in Google or wherever and click on a result that looks right. Now a PDF automatically downloads and saves to my phone. What if this were malware? What if I don't want the PDF saved to my phone? ex: search for Census PDF in Google. Click on any of the first few links (they are all PDFs). Result: Android says Download saved and asks if I want to open it (no prompt beforehand asking if I want to download this random link).

Tried: searched forever for a solution. In Windows, you can just go to Options and choose the Always Ask where to Save, or Always Ask or whatever, so that it will prompt you before downloading. I didn't realize Android wasn't set up this way already. I hoped that could be done in Android but it can't. Not even by changing some of the browser.download options in about:config.

Hopes: this can be like expedited for the next release. I guess maybe in most cases people know what PDFs they are downloading, but I am sure there has to be other people clicking a search result in Google without knowing that instead of a website, a PDF downloads (didn't even take me to the website either). PDFs tend to be a big medium for malware so it would be ideal for Firefox security purposes to at least prompt a user "do you want to download this file?" regardless of asking where to save.

Let me know your thoughts. In the meantime I guess I will hope I don't click any URLs that end up being PDFs haha. Thank you!

www.sciencespots.com keeps crashing in Firefox for Android.

It's Firefox Android (66.0.2) on Android 9 with Nokia 7 Plus.

Same happens on other devices with different Android versions (confirmed also on S9).

The site is a PWA built with Angular 7.2.9 and Angular CDK 7.3.4. @angular/service-worker ist version 1.5, @angular/pwa is 0.13

There is also a google maps instance embedded in the PWA via https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js

The crashes happen only on Firefox for Android. Other browsers on Android work fine (Chrome, Opera, Samsung,...). Firefox on Desktop (Windows) works as well.

Crash ID and Signature: ID: 5848ed93-b0a6-4fd4-a53e-82ed20190416 Signature: mozilla::dom::FetchDriver::OnDataAvailable

See details in picture attached.

If you need any further information, please let me know. Thank you!
