When I run Firefox 15.0.1 with Shockwave Flash 11.4 I get a download speed of about 5 Mbps. When I disable Flash it gets a lot faster. I have a 100 Mbps connection and if I measure the download speed using Internet Explorer (with Flash extention) I get a +90 Mbps reading. I did have the same problem with 11.3 but not with 10.3.

Hi Releg,

That is a really interesting issue you are reporting. Did you try 14.0.1 to see if you have the same issue there? We may have more questions for you as well if you are willing to help!

I believe I had the same problem with 14.0.1. Not sure of exact version but at least it was the same thing before updating to 15.
