Firefox Preview uses too much data

Posted

I normally consume 2G of data per month. Today and yesterday Firefox Preview consumed over 9G -- in two days!! I couldn't see any way to find which sites did this or what might have caused it. I wonder if you could recommend diagnostic tools. Has this happened to anyone else?

Hi

Thank you for your question and interest in Firefox Preview.

Assuming you have Firefox Preview connected to your Firefox Account, do you have it set to sync your browsing history?

I do not have Firefox Preview logged into to my Firefox Account. So browsing history is only in the app itself on the phone. If I did that, and synced it, would there be diagnostic tools in the Account functionality? Is that what you are suggesting?
