Firefox is using a pathetically low amount of bandwidth when loading websites

I've only started having this problem recently. After upgrading to an ethernet cable and getting much faster internet speeds (around 70mbps on the speed test), I've noticed that for whatever reason, Firefox is actually running slower than it did when I had worse internet connection through Wi-Fi signal. Websites can take minutes to fully load. When checking the task manager, it shows that Firefox's network speed is either 0.1mbps or 0mbps. This can be somewhat inconsistent, for example YouTube's homepage is able to load somewhat quickly, however videos can take a few refreshes. This is also sometimes a problem on a few other programs like Discord, but it's never been a problem on Edge (which is where I'm writing this). Is there any way to fix this?

I seem to have got myself into a real mess with this. Attempted some of the fixes without success. Decided that that a re-install might work. couldn't find firefox.exe in programs or apps but firefox helper is there, but refuses to uninstall. Attempted new download which was OK but installation failed. Are there any easy answers to this. Edge works ok and have checked for malware. I'm not very tech savvy. Any help would be appreciated

When I try to download music I have purchased from Bandcamp (www.bandcamp.com) the file that downloads (regardless of if i choose AAC fomat or FLAC) downloads as a TextEdit file which I can usually expand with StuffItExpander. However this no longer works, yet it works fine on Safari.

URL of such a file is download URL of such a purchase

Bandcamp support are unaware of any issues - I updated to Firefox 75.0.1 with no difference in the outcome.

With two tabs in use, my fully updated Firefox uses 350 MB of memory or more, about 36% of available memory on this 2013 Windows 10 Pro Dell.

Is this level of memory usage typical, or possibly indicative of a problem?

[Background: My only problem is some web pages taking a long time to load, which could have many possible causes of course. I do employ most of the available security protection in Firefox Options/Privacy and Security, judt use Windows security software for monitoring, show no viruses on Malwarebytes.... I have never before now looked at Task Manager Processes with just a browser running, nothing else. I have checked out the online recommendations.]

I've looked for solutions, and none work. (Can't change permissions: Failed to enumerate objects in the container. Access is denied.)

There was an issue yesterday with Firefox going through an update every time I opened the browser. It worked for a short time this morning with the same update issue. Later on, the icon changed from the logo to something else and I can no longer do anything with it.

I have a completely fresh install of mozilla on my laptop *HP Elitebook 8470p*, it plain refuses to load webpages, and it seems to be the only browser to have this issue.

It has the following specs: a I5 3340M 8GB DDR3 RAM at 1300MHz Integrated graphics chip

Its running windows 10

Is this a case of the specs being utterly lacking or am I missing something.

every time i start firefox it launches 7 versions of it , it locks up and is not reliable, this just recently started occurring.

I went to programs and settings for windows 10 and removed Mozilla , I the went to %appdata% and removed all directories that were named moziilla.

I then empty the trash can , and rebooted.

I then re-installed the latest version from the web site for x64 ( version 78.0.2 64 bit) and have the same issue. I go to websites and they lock up for 2 - 5 minutes , uses another browser and go to the same web sites and have no issues, happens when I go to google.com,microsoft.com etc...

I do not have this issue when I use other browsers

Any Ideas ?
