I added Firefox as another browser to my phone for business reasons (email and scheduling program). Since then, about 2-3 weeks, my data usage on my phone has a major increase where I am over on my gigabytes (which I never do). In the past 2 weeks, I used Firefox 4 times for less than 10 minutes. Verizon says I need to contact Firefox. I need to speak to a Firefox representative, but don't see any other phone or direct support from Mozilla/Firefox.

Since May 15th, this month, I used from 3.88 GB to 4.11 in general on my phone (only using phone for text, emails, pics, Navigation rarely, and google. Originally, I downloaded Firefox about a week before that and my "Settings, Data Usage" today reveals Firefox uses the most GB at 1.62 for these past 3 weeks since I downloaded the app. "Background" usage is .01, and "Foreground" is 1.61.

I use Google Browser for everything, and it uses .40 GB.

Why so much GB usage for Firefox?
