Hello,

Recently I started to experience an issue that whenever I would specifically download a file using the Firefox web broswer for Android, my mobile would temporarily lose it's cell reception. After a few seconds it reconnects. The issue does not appear when downloading (for example) images from the Wikipedia mobile application, or using the Google Chrome browser. The issue is still present when using wi-fi or a VPN connection. This makes me very concerned about my privacy and the safety of my data on my device. The android version used is Android 11 and the app was updated as of September 9th

Thank you for assistance!
