Firefox is using an awful lot of power. Currently with no tabs open it's using 38% against Chrome's 13% and I've had 45% earlier today. I've never checked apps for power consumption previously so that might be normal, but it sure looks like heavy usage. With 6 tabs open, Samsung Internet browser is using 1%.
It's the same for both browsers after a restart. It's an Honor 8A phone, Android 9. I re-installed FF and it's version 101.1.1 When I re-installed FF it was initially only 18% but its gone up and stayed up.
There are settings under App Launch to manage app launch automatically to save battery power by preventing some launches, but it doesn't affect things.
At one point I thought the problem was synchronisation with my FF account, but I just signed out of both FF account and also Youtube, restarted, just the same. When I signed into Youtube in Samsung internet browser it went up to 1.14%
ADDED LATER. I left the phone on and charging overnight. In the morning FF was 9% while Chrome and Samsung browser didn't even appear in the battery useage listing. As soon as I opened a couple of pages in FF, it shot up to 48%.
What else can I check? Is there anything I can do? The Honor battery only just gets through the day anyway, so this is a problem.
