FF 15.0.1 is very slow on my Laptop but good on my Desktop?

I have an ASUS dual core 4GB RAM W7 64bit laptop where FF 15.0.1 runs very slowly & many times hangs up.

When I try SPEEDTEST.net (ST) using FF, my d/l speed is ~2MBS & u/l is ~1.5MBS. And I can tell that ST is running very slowly. The ST page alone loads very slowly. Ping takes a long time.

But when I run ST on Chrome, all other things being equal, I can get 20MBS d/l & 3 MBS u/l speeds. A dramatic difference.

I have reset FF & that helped a little but it is still running about 1/10th the d/l speed as does Chrome. I prefer FF & wondering what else I can do. I also run Charter Security Suite.

Thanx in advance - Bob

ps- I posted this issue while using my Mac Mini which seems to run much better than my ASUS laptop. So the additional "Info" can be misleading. While submitting the issue, the Mac data was sucked in by FF help, I did not document it.
