Android: Downloads are confusing
Downloading files in Tor Browser on Android is sometimes confusing and not safe. There are two separate but related issues.
- Downloads are saved in the shared storage. See #26574 (moved) for more information about this and downloading files into the app's internal storage.
- When the app is restarted after downloading a file, the file is not listed in Tor Browser's Downloads list anymore. This is very confusing, especially because the file is still saved in the shared storage. I suspect this is because private browsing mode doesn't save state (including recent downloads).
