Speedtest.net is giving me different results than Vivaldi or Edge. The download testing speeds are all over the place and choppy compared to the other browsers, and a tad slower overall result too. The upload speeds are fine. What does this mean?

Why is my internet speed so slow in Firefox? Is there anything I can do to speed it up? My speed is 110Mbps faster in Google Chrome. That is doing numerous speed tests on both browsers. I have no extensions or addons running. I have the latest version. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Running a speed test in Firefox will show lower download speeds, in some cases just a fraction of the speed of my broadband connection, both on Windows and Linux installations of Firefox Browser. Safe Mode makes no difference. Other browsers show normal speeds.

Hello,

When using Firefox, my network speeds are brutally slow (~35 Mbps), while Edge is (~300 Mbps, which is my service speed). I am hardwired through my router, but it is the same wired or wireless.

I have literally tried every single step through Firefox's troubleshooting and have even completed what I thought to be an entire uninstall and deletion of every single Firefox file on my laptop. Upon uninstall and deleting of EVERYTHING, I reinstalled only to be greeted with "Hey, it looks like you reinstalled Firefox, want to refresh everything?". I did (another) refresh and still, same speeds.

Is there a way to 100% remove Firefox and reinstall? I want my laptop/Firefox to treat each other as never have met, in hopes that I can install and get the speeds I should be getting.

Interesting note, Firefox for Android gets ~300 Mbps no problem on my phone.

Thanks in advance!
