Hello.
Why Firefox use a lot of internet traffic? For example, I browsed 10 pages via Firefox and it used 200 MB of my internet traffic but those websites via Google Chrome just used 10 MB of my internet traffic.

Why?

Thank you.

this is bound to settings in about:preferences#privacy (scroll down to the telemetry settings, below permissions)
but this wont explain 190mb difference.

How are you determining that?
