HELP! My mobile data usage spiked as of June 20th and has continued at unprecedented levels almost every day since. My historic daily usage for the past many years has been around 4 MB and is now 95MB. and busting through my 2GB/month limit. This is ALL due to Firefox! What happened? Something strange happened on June 19th, when my mobile date usage recorded three separate usage figures instead of the single usage figure for all days previously. June 19th showed 2 usage figures and June 30th showed 3.

What makes you believe that this is attributable to Firefox for Android?
Detailed data usage from my ISP attributed all the excess data usage to my Firefox browser, THAT'S why!
Did you have a tab playing media (perhaps in an advert) in the background?
Has this data usage been repeated since?
Nothing running in background. Starting June 23 and for 20 days (when I blocked cellphone data) I used 1.5 GB of data compared to my historical usage of 6mb per month. Consumption was as much as 100 times normal on most, but not all of the 20 days.
Do you have your Android device set to only update over WiFi only?
I am not aware of anything that could cause this to happen in Firefox for Android. I am also not aware of any other reports of this happening over the same period of time to other people.
