Download speed refers to how many megabits of data per second it takes to download data from a server in the form of images, videos, text, files and audio to your device. Activities such as listening to music on Spotify, downloading large files or streaming videos on Netflix all require you to download data.
Refreshing your profile will retain all browsing and download history, bookmarks, web form auto-fill data, cookies, personal dictionary and passwords, and will transfer them to a brand new profile without extensions, themes, extension data and preferences, among other data. A backup of your old profile will also be retained.
If no file chooser is shown when downloading files, even with the option \"Always ask where to save files\" enabled in Firefox's preferences, then you might not have both xdg-desktop-portal and a suitable implementation. Desktop environments usually provide an implementation, but if you are using a standalone window manager such as i3, then you may need to manually install one. Install xdg-desktop-portal and for example xdg-desktop-portal-gtk.

@sanderev Not even close. Netflix is aloud to submit a beta test app for approval and if they and google or Apple are satisfied and met all of each of their requirements then yes it can be approved and since a monthly subscription app and channels within channels purchased monthly an agreement must be made as well for the percentages that google or Apple gets from each, same or each type of income different percentages etc. You've obviously never been or known anyone to be a developer. And its much harder to get it approved on Apple as they have much mroe stringent security policies that must be met before being ok'd to download on their market place, Google is hard enouigh, especially after the 1 M apps found to have spyware in each of them previously unnoticed. Now they picked those up everyone has been using and getting skimmed on certain accounts and banking from it, accounts taken over, JSON and OFOQ ransomware file types moved from JPG and RAR to those demanding 1K to get your files back. Its a big mess and CERTAINLY NOT AS SIMPLE AS DOING AN APP AND COMPANIES LIKE GOOGLE< APPLE, NINTENDO, MS, etc automatically pick them up, as thats flat butt not true, not even within a mile close. It doesn't work that way at all. 59ce067264
