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.

I'm not a native English speaker. Please forgive my possible mistakes in grammar.

In my opinion, Firefox for Android is designed for Android smartphones and tablets. But when I download and install the latest version on my tablet. It doesn't fit the big screen well. It just like a larger version of smartphone. I tried several other web browser on my tablet. Such as kiwi-browser , Chrome , edge and samsung browser. They performed well on the big screen of tablet. Just like the desktop version. I think Firefox for Android should perform more like the desktop verison on tablet but not the bigger smartphone. It's very frustrating for me because I have to use other web browser on my tablet rather than my favorite Firefox.

I have used the older version (ver.68) of Firefox for Android. It's much better than the present user interface. Why Firefox for Android doesn't fit for tablet now?

What files must I edit from Firefox's Github repo to add wireless keyboard support for mobile/AOSP? I waited over a decade for code that should take a half hour to write.

Cheap wireless keyboards came out a decade ago, but mobile had no support, so I thought "okay, it will just take a few weeks." But weeks became years. Over a decade passed, still no progress. I will do it for you for free if you let me. If the problem was Firefox, I would just switch to Chrome, but building Chromium for Android is even harder and it also needs patched to get keyboard support.

Today I was out of the house for a bit, and towards the end of it, I noticed that my phone was really hot. I checked the notifications, and android had given me an alert that my phone had used 7 GB of mobile data (the alarm is set to notify me for anything past 1GB). This was presumably in the space of slightly over an hour - while I wasn't even using the phone actively at all. according to android's "application data usage", all but 52 bytes of that was all foreground usage. But the thing is, I'm confused what even it was using that much data on - I don't think it could have been autoplaying videos, since I think the tab it was open to was something like reddit. I'm wanting to know what could have caused it to use that much data in that short a time without me actively doing things which are that data-intensive. Could it be something to do with the fact I had quite a few tabs open? are background tabs constantly requesting data or something? could it be some kind of virus? I'm honestly not sure, but I'd appreciate feedback so that this doesn't happen again. I'm also unsure if there's any way to generate a diagnostic report of the app, or anything like that, so if there is, please let me know.

I have a few questions about the storage space used by Firefox v60.00 on Android 6.0.

Here is a picture of the storage space used up by Firefox on my phone

Cache has been cleared.

Data however is using up a large amount of space (1.3GB).

uBlock origin version 1.16.6 is the only plugin/addon I have installed.

I don't have any downloads.

By comparison Chrome browser on my phone takes up less than 100MB of storage space.

Questions

What is a normal clean install size for firefox on Android ?

What is deleted if I clear the 1.3GB of Data? Will my bookmarks be deleted. Will uBlock origin be deleted (my only installed plugin).

How can I backup my bookmarks to a file?

How do I determine what is using up all this storage space in Firefox, and prevent it from happening again?

Thanks for your responses.

i like firefox on my cell phone as well as on my pc, but i encounter a problem on my tablet. The screen is big enough that I could display my bookmarks bar permanently (as well as tabs). if I want to look up several things quickly, which would certainly be possible with my tablet with keyboard and mouse, I can't even do that because I can't open the bookmarks that quickly.

however, i can understand that this is not permanently implemented, but i would like to have a customization option via on/off in the settings and while we are on the subject, an option to switch tabs on/off like on the desktop like the page marker permanently on desktop mode would be really nice.

of course it could be that these options already exist, then it would be that i am too stupid to find them because i really couldn't imagine that they don't exist and have already rummaged through all the options.

Several times in the last 5 months, I received a notification on my Pixel 7 phone telling me that Firefox was, "using large amounts of data." The first time it was about 750 MB of data (in a 20-ish min period). Today, it was about 400 MB of data (also in a 20-ish minute period). Both times I was simply browsing news sites - catching up on the days news. Today, I was logged into the New York Times (I'm a subscriber) when I received the high data usage notification. I'm a dinosaur who is still on a limited - 2GB - plan, so gobbling up a quarter of my data in 20-ish minutes hurts. Any ideas how to troubleshoot this one?

I attempted to upload two screenshots showing my data usage - 1 showing the overall data usage - the spike. And the other showing Firefox usage. It is unclear to me whether or not the pictures uploaded. Also, I had written this query before but I'm not sure it submitted. If it did, I apologize for the repeat.
