Upgraded to Firefox 12 and ping increased

Locking duplicate thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/926258]

I just upgraded from Firefox 3 to Firefox 12 and immediately got 5 to 10 higher ping tests. When I reinstalled Firefox 3 it went back down immediately. Is there a reason? Did I do something wrong? Is there a setting I should switch? As a gamer I'm concerned about ping increasing for no apparent reason.
