I am on Android Firefox and I accidentally chose "Always" on the pop-up asking where I want my downloaded items to go. I want to change it because where the files are now sent is inconvenient at best but i cannot find such an option to change my preference in either the Firefox settings bar nor my phone's device settings.

Thank you for the response!

I should clarify what the issue was: my problem was that I needed a downloaded PDF to open in google drive but it kept opening in my ebooks app. I couldnt find a way in Firefox to fix it but I did manage to fix it through my device settings after fiddling around for a while.

For future reference in case anybody else has a similar issue: go to device settings, and then your devices app settings. Select the app that your downloads automatically open in and then clear permissions. You should now get to choose which app a PDF opens in.
