2mbps connection firefox download speed is around 80kbps but fdm download manager download speed is around 238kbps

why firefox download speed is low when comparing to others like chrome and free download manager

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 https://support.cdn.mozilla.net/media/uploads/images/2014-07-17-23-29-21-befa12.png

Adi answered Like this 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. but why firefox doesn't offer this feature but chrome downloads 200kb why and how firefox hanging the border

The server my FireFox beta 32 uses is: sync-44-us-west-2.sync.services.mozilla.com:443 and for about 5 days now, it is really slow (like 5 minutes) sync'ing my Bookmarks, etc.

What's up ??

Previously, sync would take a maximum of about 5 seconds.... This is by pressing the Sync NOW button.

I'm looking for an answer to disabling cloud-based sync services in regards to an enterprise reqeust. This prevents saved passwords or other sensitive data being uploaded to the cloud, and also prevent the user syncing that data with an untrusted device. I can't find an option to disable Sync (specifically the "Sign in to Sync" menu option) apart from setting some of the configured sign-in URI's to null. Is there a way of just disabling the function?

Lately whenever I open any site that requires flashplayer (namely shockwave flash plugin) I find the plugin not responding or just flat out crashing. I have done a reset of firefox to fix it, then tried to clean install both firefox and flash again, I have tried booting firefox into safe mode, even disabled all plugins and re enabled one at a time and the shockwave flash plugin always appears to be the issue.

I have tried to disable hardware acceleration in flash, but cannot as all flash plugins crash before I can get to the settings menu.

I'm using the currently up to date versions of firefox, flashplayer, and my gpu drivers. I'm running on Windows 7 Home sp1, i5 3570k, gtx 770, 8GB ram. If there is any of bits of information please let me know.

I'm also not exactly sure how to add my last crash reports to this, but will when I figure it out.

In mid July, after the firefox update, I had decided to close firefox like I usually do before I open the client for my MMORPG Aion, so I did. I end up not turning on firefox for a few days and when I did my bookmarks were gone as well as my toolbar bookmarks and my history. I start to wonder what happened and then I realised that there was a grey bar at the bottom of my browser stating, "Sync encountered an error while syncing: Unknown error. Sync will automatically retry this action.." I had no idea why this would happen as I never had this problem before so I look at the firefox support database but since I'm quite the greenhorn when it comes to programming there was only so much I could understand. I did try looking for corrupt or locked profiles but I saw none. Now as of today it's going on 2 months since the problem began and just today I recieved the firefox 32.0 update but still have this problem so I'm at my wits end and I not sure if I'll ever get it working again. Also my sync account is the one under the new system I had updated a few days before the problem began it also seems to be working on my other devices. Im lost without my bookmarks please help.

Our department has started using "the cloud". In our office, we create drawings and maps in Microstation which are also made into .pdf files. It is the .pdf files that we share with clients. I was viewing a .pdf file we created recently and it was listed as a Firefox HTML document. Questions: Is Firefox actually changing our files? What if we sometimes need to have them behave exactly as an Adobe file is expected to behave? What if we need to download a .pdf file and put it on a CD to hand to someone? Will the client be coming back to us saying "What is this thing, I can't use it?" Can we expect these files to plot exactly as a .pdf would plot, and what would we need to do differently? Is there something printed up, or a document online, that would explain these things and tell us what normally happens, so that my supervisor (who has barely had a chance to look while this upgrade is happening) would understand it? btw I am NOT writing from work. thanks in advance

I have firefox version 32.0.1 on Windows Vista.

I can resize using the maximize and minimize button just fine but I cannot move the window. Not even if I right click and select move - the window will not move, nor will it resize using just the mouse.

I only have a default theme, so please do not suggest theme change for firefox. I have also reset firefox, but it still doesnt work. Starting firefox is safe mode results in the same issue.

Help?

Just in the past month, some of the teachers at my school have been having problems with downloading from Firefox. They're on Macs on OS 10.7.5 using the latest version of Firefox. If they download a pdf file, there's a message that the file is empty when you try to open it. Other downloads fail. I have reset the downloads folder, reset firefox, cleared history, cache and cookies, disabled hardware acceleration. No extensions are loaded that need to be disabled. Firefox is using the default theme. There are no Add-Ons loaded. I've created a new downloads location and/or tried saving downloads to the desktop. All of those fixes I've gotten from a search for this problem. Nothing is working. Firefox on the computer I'm on now is working fine; this is happening to others.

Any help would be appreciated.
