Original post: How to stop auto download of sailfish browser
My findings on duplicate question: In the Sony Xperia XA2, why does sailfish-browser redownload a file that has been fully downloaded when you open the browser again?
Hope these can help.


Thank you for the post. This is a known issue and we are working on it. To clarify a bit further, have you closed the tabs one by one? Did you notice the partial download after/while closing the tabs?

i did close them one by one.

the issue is gone since i did close them.
i did close them all one by one, while the pop up was comming.
i did cancel popup it came again.
i did continue closing tabs
so not sure if it was sufficient to close the distinct tab or to close them all
