My internet speed is good, but firefox download is very slow. Why?
I have a shared WiFi internet connection with 54.0 Mbps speed. Internet speed is good but Firefox installer downloads Firefox at very slow speed. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes in downloading Firefox. Please fix the problem if it is occurring through your end, else do tell me what can I do to get it better. Thank you.

Which security software (firewall, anti-virus) do you have?
Boot the computer in Windows Safe mode with network support (press F8 on the boot screen) as a test to see if that helps.
Does it work faster with this direct link to the Mozilla CDN site?
Yes, thanks. Direct download link of 24MB setup file of firefox stable versions should be made available at www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ alongwith 276K installer file.
why firefox downloading very slow when comparing to the fdm download manager
2mbps connection firefox download speed is around 80kbps but fdm download manager download speed is around 238kbps
valasudurai, you should start a new thread as this thread was about installing Firefox. The stub installer needs a internet connection while the full setup can be installed offline.
James i have a firefox that was full offline installation file do you understand what i am asking why firefox download speed is low when comparing to others like chrome and free download manager
how did you say the full installation may help and why i will post an image for you clarification
The same amount of size was downloaded 206kbps in FDM but firefox downloads 60 to 80kbps why
the 62mb file takes 10minute and more time to download the file i think the same as the speed to download the streaming content what do you think about it
valasudurai, I am saying your questions is not related to this thread. This thread was about problems in installing Firefox with stub installer and NOT about the download manager in Firefox.
I would split your posts off to be a new thread but this forum does not have that feature.

I have Microsoft Security Essential installed in my computer.
valasudurai, fdm downloads a file from several connections and later it appends all downloaded parts into one file. Therefore, it downloads a file in less time. It is controlled by servers of fdm. On the other hand, when firefox setup is downloaded by its installer ( Stub ) it is downloaded from server of Mozilla Firefox over a single connection, it does not download several parts in parallel or simultaneously. Therefore, it is downloaded at a slower rate.
