Even if the battery is set to limited and the application is stopped, the battery will still be consumed. Why?

Hi

Firefox for Android has one background processes to be able to handle links from other apps (for example) that may account for this battery usage.

How to close power-consuming background processes? After closing Firefox, I can't see services and processes running? Is it turned on automatically? I am now using the BETA version of Firefox, and the power consumption has improved a lot! I also use BRAVE, and I haven’t noticed that it consumes so much power when it’s not running like Firefox!

I am not sure how to close those processes, but I do know that the team have been doing some work on power consumption and this is possibly what you are seeing in the Beta version. Hopefully this will be made available in the Release version very soon.
