Huge spike in foreground data usage (9GB)

Hi,

I'm on a Pixel 7 and I use Firefox Focus as my default browser app for news/socials/daily browsing. It's not connected to any Google accounts and I erase as I go along to avoid cookies/marketing/ad tracking. I also run Bitdefender. Focus background data usage is off.

Today I ran out of mobile data and on checking apparently Firefox Focus used 9GB of foreground data just today. I'm not sure how, as I was only on mobile data for about an hour, and the phone was in my pocket for that time. It shows 11 minutes of screen time, but 49% of my battery used today.

Is this a bug, or have I been hacked/compromised?

Cheers

https://www.google.com/search?q=adguard%20app&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b-1-m has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox Focus can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

Simple: Will there ever be more than four shortcuts within Firefox Focus for Android? This is the only limiting factor I don't understand. I love this browser for everything else it does better than the standard Firefox, but this is the limiting factor... I would understand if the screen would be full, but it is not. A 4x6 matrix, maybe adjustable in the options how much, fits perfectly on probably all mobiles. The "put shortcuts on mobile desktop" is not a solution, that is already full enough as it is.

Hi there, When I try to use Firefox Focus by tapping the search bar (see screenshot), my phone keyboard does not appear. No matter how many times I tap. I have tried clearing cache, deleting the app's data, restarting my phone, and uninstalling and reinstalling the app. None of these fixed the issue. This makes the app completely unusable. Any assistance is appreciated. Thank you.

EDIT: The keyboard app I am using is Gboard - it came pre-installed on my phone.

I am trying to open about:config in Firefox Focus Android (normal version, no beta), and it does not open. Is this a bug or by design? Please not "by design". What I want to change: The number of rows on the shortcuts, since only four shortcuts are not enough.
