The reason is the inbox protection in Firefox blocks JavaScript counters  like Statcounter and many well known user trackers. This option presets in Firefox at least since version 69, so it had some notable time to affect JS-based stat values. Moreover, Mozilla is constantly improves the privacy-related features, almost with every major release.

Cloudflare operates with the User Agent line when building its statistics. The same stats is populated by Wikipedia, which is also based on the UA value. According to statistics of the latter, the share of Firefox is 4.2%, Chrome - 20.2%, Chrome Mobile - 26.6%, Mobile Safari - 20.8%.

Finally, it is worth mentioning that you should take these values with a grain of salt. There are several factors that can skew this data. To reliably determine the browser version, several methods must be used in a complex manner.
