Good evening. I have run the Ookla speed test through Edge and my download is 212.94 Mbps and my upload is 11.76 Mbps and uses the Spectrum Syracuse Server. Running Spectrum speed test on Edge registers Spectrum Syracuse as the optimum server and download is 236.2 and upload 11.6. Both are using my Spectrum server in Syracuse, NY.

When I run Ookla through Firefox I got 227.17 down and 11.63 up. Spectrum's speed test through Firerefox's Syracuse server 231.8 up and 11.5 down.

However for a while earler this evening when I ran both programs on both browsers and both through Syracuse's servers I was getting downs of 0.0 to 0.7. I reset the modem and router and still had low speeds but shortly after I got the readings I wrote in the first two paragraphs.

What would be the reason for this? Anything particular with Firefox? Something I should look out for in the future? Partially a curiosity while the other part being proactive.

Thanks for anybody who can take time to answer.

Hi, It seem that the Firefox.exe was hacked on my PC. Namely, there is no way to get rid of some Turkish webpages like https://www[.]ahaberci[.]com/sifresiz-trabzonspor-konyaspor-canli-izle-bedava-bein-sports-1-canli-yayin-izle-justi-49375h.htm which appear on starting the Firefox. I checked for the malwares the PC with several antivirus software. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it without saving data from the previous versions, with no success. I tried all methods offered by the Firefox Help, but does not work. Please, help me to fix the problem. I am attaching screenshots to illustrate the problem.

Thank you, Katalin

I have a problem printing my bank statement using Mozilla Firefox. Portions of the statement (in a table format) are completely blacked out. Other portions of the statement which are also in a table format print tine. I do not have the problem when using Microsoft Edge (same desktop) or Safari (iPad) and I am using the same printer for all three browsers. The statement utilizes Acrobat Reader so I first uninstalled and then reinstalled Acrobat Reader. The problem persisted. Clearly, the problem is with Mozilla Firefox. I have taken all the steps suggested in "Fix printing problems in Firefox" to no avail. This included resetting all Firefox printer settings. Since it is my bank statement I cannot send you a copy of the printout. However, I will say that the Mozilla Firefox print preview does not show any portion of the document being blacked out - it only occurs upon printing and only when using Mozilla Firefox.

I use Firefox as my regular browser and Google's GSuite for mail, calendar, and so on. This morning, Google Calendar will not load completely. GMail works fine. The sidebar Calendar in GMail works, but the "standalone" calendar site does not work.

I checked this in a Chrome browser and there is no problem - it all works fine. The problem is only in the Firefox browser.

Is anyone else having this problem or have any suggestions?

Three computers running current version of Firefox. All have a longstanding bookmark for Google Calendar. Starting this morning, when I click on the bookmark, Calendar goes into a "loading" mode and will not load. However, when I open Gmail using the same sign-in I can access the calendar in the right pane of the Gmail page. But when I try to open the calendar in a new tab, the same "loading" issue happens and I can't see a full page calendar. Two computers run on Windows 10, one on Windows 7. All three computers have the same problem which has never happened before. I have tried adjusting Firefox privacy settings on each computer to no avail. I run a Malwarebytes VPN and have tried turning that off, but have the same result. I don't think this is a Google problem because the right pane calendar opens fine when I open Gmail. I also tried this in Microsoft Edge on the two Windows 10 computers and the calendar opens fine. The calendar data also opens fine in third party ios calendar apps. So I'm at a loss about what to try next.

When I display a page with text it is really bad in firefox but not any other browser that I have. This just seems to have happened. I am on Windows10. Sometimes when the page loads the text is great, but only for a second and then goes bad - I think the term is pixily?
