Hello. I'm an avid fan of Firefox; never liked Chrome, never cared for I.E. and original Edge was there. Since Edge-ium came out, when I'm on battery, I have been testing it and there's a marked difference in battery life when compared to FF. I don't run many add-ons and from what I can tell, both browsers are set the same (options).

On Edge-ium I can achieve up to 5 hours of battery (Lenovo Yoga 730 4K). On FF, I'm lucky to hit 2hrs. Help?

Computer repairman attempting to help this older lady on her computer. Old battery was puffed up and expanded. Replaced but only getting a couple of hours of use. Checked battery usage and firefox is the main component of the issue. Any ideas on why this is? Battery usage in background is 34% and no other app on the computer is like this. Completely up to date.
