Hello there,

The problem that i am getting is that when i am downloading a file from the browser , it only shows on the screen notification panel but not in the 'downloads' section of the browser. And when i pause the download, even after having downloaded more than 50 percent it would completely disappear and then i find no option to resume the download.. This is a major issue kindly help me sort it out.

Thanks !

Hi

The file will show as downloaded in Firefox once the file has been downloaded to your device.

It will not have been saved as the file has not been downloaded.

Does that mean that I have to wait there on the browser page until it is downloaded completely?

No, the file should download in the background (assuming you have a good WiFi connection).

I am asking whether does all this mean that i shouldn't even pause the file once , while its being downloaded? Bcoz file disappears after i pause it in the download process ☹️

If you pause the download, there is a chance that the download may struggle to resume.

This is possibly not an issue with Firefox for Android but could be linked to the Android download process and/or the strength of your WiFi connection.
