Resolve Bug 40075: Support scoped storage to enable downloads on API >= 29

linked issues


  • in !7 (merged), we blocked all usage of Scoped Storage (via an BuildConfig.ANDROID_DOWNLOADS_INTEGRATIONtoggle) in an attempt to block usage of the system AndroidDownloadManager, which is known to cause proxy bypasses
  • as of Android API 29, downloads will not work without Scoped Storage, causing all downloads to fail (see: fenix#40192 (closed))


  • enable usage of scoped storage for API >= 29
  • abandon attempts to block writing metadata about downloaded files to system databases (as justified here), which frees us to...
  • eliminate the ANDROID_DOWNLOADS_INTEGRATION feature toggle altogether
