It seems to be a relatively new feature that pdf files are shown directly in the browser instead of downloading them.

How can I download them instead?

  • I have updated to the latest Dolphin, but it asks me to download the PDF file. Have you tried with a different site? Just to test, search for a PDF file in Google, and try to download it. Let me know if it still opens on the screen for you.

  • @geffchang Upps. You are right! There seems to be a difference between Dolphin and Mini in that aspect - I updated the title of my question accordingly. I tried with mini and assumed this to be a general behaviour.
