Hi, My Firefox and Thundebird internet download / upload speed is slow. I I try with Chrome download speed, it is 7-10Mb up and down. If do same with Firefox, then it is different. Many times it is 0,2Mb, but some time also 5-6Mb Usually upload are faster and it is 5Mb. (Use Chrome, then always faster) It seems to me as random, because many times speed OK and many times not OK. If compare test result with Chrome, then always slow.

I use ESET virus control and try to test it without virus control, but same result.

Also in Thundebird HTML load are slow. Small picture in e-mail can reach 30 sec.

I try to change different things in options, but no result.

Can anyone help me with this?

Windows 10 *N version*. Can Firefox be 'convinced' to stop depending on WMF? Workarounds?

Hi.

I'm using Windows 10 Pro 2004 *N Version* x64 and latest Firefox. I understand there's a problem with Windows N versions that can be solved by installing Media Feature pack. The problem is... MFP also installs full Windows Media Player and who knows what more. I won't install the full MFP, but I wouldn't mind to add some DLLs or registry keys to circumvent the problem.

So far I've tested Youtube and some other sites and apparently WebM videos run OK (got no problem with Youtube at all) ... but can't play videos on Twitter. Tests seem to show there's a problem playing MP4 videos. Also, it looks like Widevine isn't working.

So... can Firefox for Windows be configured to use ffmpeg... or some other woraround to stop depending on Windows Media Foundation (I assume that's the root of the problem)? If not... any 'hack-ish' way to add just the bare minimum Windows support infrastructure to allow Firefox to play those videos?

Thanks for any help you can provide!
