Firefox for Android suddenly using huge amounts of data - how to stop??

Been using Firefox for Android as my default browser for years now. It never used much data even though I would leave a dozen tabs open. Suddenly last week, Firefox started using up to 500 MB of data at a time. I figured this out when I got a notice from my service provider that I was about to go over my data limit. I usually use less than 1 GB of mobile data a month and haven't been doing anything unusual. Although it started while I was on a trip (but not using anything out of the ordinary), it continued when I got back.

I uninstalled and reinstalled the app, then tried leaving the app open with a couple tabs open to articles on reputable sites for ten minutes. It used as much data as Twitter did for 28 days and I use Twitter way more than Firefox. Also, now that I think of it, I've also been surprised at how fast my battery is getting used up. Maybe related? Thoughts? Do I have malware and if so, what should I do about it?

Thanks for any help!

I recently had to replace my phone. With the new installation of Firefox, I no longer have the option of choosing the destination directory of downloaded files. Previously, I had set it up to ask every time. Now I can't remember or figure out now to do that.

I have found many sites with instructions for how to set a new default directory and download to that default every time, but that isn't what I want. I want to choose every time.
