'In 2017, Mozilla experimented with a service that let you transfer
1GB files by sharing a web address with the recipient. Firefox Send is
now out of testing and boasts a magnified 2.5GB file-size limit if you
log into your Firefox account. From a report:

Firefox Send is handy for those moments when you need to share video,
audio or photo files that can be too big to squeeze into an email
attachment. [...] Firefox Send, which will also be available as an
Android app, illustrates one of Mozilla's efforts to diversify beyond
the Firefox browser. Mozilla touts Firefox Send as focusing on privacy
and uses encryption to protect files. Firefox Send files are available
for up to seven days and can be password-protected. You can also limit
the number of times they're downloaded.'
