Hey guys! I recently switched to Firefox from Chrome and I'm loving it except for the fact that download speeds are really slow. I have a internet speed of 360Mb/s and yet Firefox will download most stuff at ~500Kb/s. In other places like Steam my download speed is around 10% of internet speed (so today it would be around 36Mb/s) but Firefox is really slow. I did some research and used some console commands and uninstalled some extensions but to no avail. Thanks for your time!

Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web Link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for a download manager.


This download manager works separately from the browser. The browser tells it what to download, and off it goes.

http://www.freedownloadmanager.org It is a powerful modern download accelerator and organizer for Windows and Mac.

It is possible that (anti-virus) security software is causing the problem. Try to disable security software temporarily to see if that makes a difference.


Boot the computer in Windows Safe Mode with network support to see if that has effect.
