Description

Currently Privacy Browser crashes if Downloads is selected from the navigation menu and the default download manager doesn't exist. This should never happen, as the download manager is a core part of the Android Open Source Project. However, a number of users have either inadvertently disabled it or it has been removed from their ROMs. It would probably be preferable to display a snackbar of some sort rather than have the app crash.

The first fallback uses DocumentsContracts.Document.MIME_TYPE_DIR ("vnd.android.document/directory").

The second fallback uses "resource/folder".

If nothing is resolved, then a snackbar is displayed indicating that no compatible file manager is installed.
