Re: the downloads api on android / workarounds

so, since the downloads api is no longer supported on ff for android; is there any viable workaround, or are mobile addons just totally barred from allowing the user to download files?

having trouble finding much information regarding the subject (beyond here, which is a huge bummer, considering it used to work great…) – would be grateful for any resources anyone could provide

You can probably still use an <a download style link. There is still a chance that at some point Firefox for Android will gain a downloads API again, I’d hope.
