On Firefox Android, I've noticed problems on download management:

1. The Downloads page does not display the progress/status of ongoing downloads. It only displays completed downloads.
2. The download progress only displays in the system notification. If the download fails and cleared that notification (either intentional or by accident), the download will be removed/cancelled.

Here's my idea:
Add more information in the Downloads page (much like in Chrome and Edge):
- progress/status of ongoing downloads
- pause/unpause and cancel options
- progress bar or otherwise
- download speed and size downloaded over download file size

Comparison of downloads page of Chrome, Edge and Firefox:

Notice the download notification icon on the top of each browser.Notice the download notification icon on the top of each browser.

I think this is actually a bug? I remember an older version of firefox android used to show download speed and progress? I can't remember when this disappeared but it was definitely there in 2017.

@N0_W4RN1NGFirefox was redesigned, and the redesigned Firefox was released in 2020.

I dont even know whether I am downloading or not. I just hope that my file will suddenly pop up. Please!

Please please add something. I have no indication whether I'm downloading or not beyond the android OS level WiFi traffic meter.

This is incredibly bad ... Hard to believe that it isn't on the roadmap. It feels like being back at the beginning if WWW browsers in the 90's (but I think even Netscape was better).

Pleeeeeease improve this very very basic feature!!!
