Ping Latency with Firefox

Hi,

I have had a really strange problem since working from home where i get broken calls with my softphone. To start with i put it down to my ISP/Router, but after some digging i noticed i am getting 400ms ping responses to my router at certain times of the day. All other devices on my network get <2ms ping responses. Reboot my surfacebook and pings go back to <5ms. After doing some testing i realised that it was Firefox causing the issues, soon as i close firefox, pings drop back to <2ms. Open firefox and work work on it for an hour or two and they creep back up to 400ms, close it and they drop. It's a test i have run multiple times as i didn't believe a browser would do this. Because i work in IT and i haven't reloaded my laptop for at least a year i thought i'd reload a fresh build of Windows...with just drivers and firefox....same problem. I have also run a stress test on the CPU / Memory to see if that had the same results, it doesn't.
