TorBrowser Android reporting wrong bandwidth label units bit/s instead byte/s

  1. in TorBrowser Android it shows under the onion icon bit/s instead byte/s. If you have traffic of 1MBYTE per second it shows: 1 Mbit/s

same for kbyte/s value with Kbit/s label and so on

  1. in TorBrowser Android notification it reads "kbps" or "mbps" while the unit is KBYTE/s or MBYTE/s

easily reproduce by downloading something... and for example compare traffic with traffic the torbrowser reports. download

please fix by changing labels, because users think tor is slower by factor 8 while it is actually not.
