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.

My employer uses the G-Suite at work. I use Firefox on my company computer and on my personal computers.

On the afternoon of Jan. 20, I lost access to Google Calendar. It only shows the dates and a crawling blue ribbon, as if it's trying to load my calendar and failing.

I ran some tests with my company computer and my personal laptop. Here's what I found:

  • I can access all the other G-suite components (Gmail, Contacts, Google Drive) from Firefox on both computers.
  • I have the latest version (84.0.2) on both computers.
  • I can access Google Calendar (and the rest of G-Suite) using Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

Sounds like Google implemented something in Calendar that doesn't get along with Firefox. Has anyone else seen this issue?

Every time I install an update my Amazon password no longer works. And, I mean every time. This has been going on for the last 6-12 updates and I am forced to go into my Amazon account from another browser and change my password. I know the password being used in FF is correct because I use LastPass. This doesn't happen with any other browser. I've loved FF for years but this is totally unacceptable and I'm starting to like Edge. Any suggestions.

I was gifted an Amazon Fire Tablet to use for an upcoming hospital/rehab stay. I use Firefox on my desktop and Android phone and want to use it on my tablet, but the Amazon store doesn't have the app. Not sure I trust the Amazon Silk browser, but I may have no choice. I am not a tech savvy person! I don't know the difference between a bit, byte, or buttercup. If there is a way to install and use Firefox on my tablet, and sync with other devices, I would like to do so. Please explain how to do it as though you are talking to a 6 year old (who probably knows more about this stuff than I do, anyway). Thanks. rennylloyd

OS: Windows 10 (Japanese) (updated) Firefox version 84.02 (64-bit) (updated) Drivers (updated)

I got an email from a reputed PDF OCR software and scanner company as usual for winter sale. I decided to buy the software and click the BUY link in the email. On the website I entered required information and when clicked the process button unexpectedly on the next page I was supposed to fill in my Credit card password which was strange and I left the website before leaving did left the chat message "why do you need password".

After a while I checked the Firefox browser's history and surprisingly there wasn't any history of that website. So, question is when I was not using Private browsing then why there wasn't web history? Do you think it is technically possible?

Any guidance will be appreciated. Thank you.

I have two laptops..both W10 64 bit both Firefox version 84.0.2. On works fine the other just will not complete the loading of Farmville-Two on Zynga . I have tried to go page by page and make sure the two laptops have identical settings and they do as best as I can find. By any chance does anyone have any suggestions I can try. I have done all the suggestions From Zynga..cleared cache, deleted web content, rebooted, reinstsalled their Launcher+ program so you dont need Flash and flash is disabled, I did virus and Malwarebytes scans, even did a sfc/ scannnow, I changed the Firefox settings to allow pop ups and set to privacy to standard. It starts to load but the page stops and locks up and I am left with a white window on the left where the farm should load ...the laptop to a point sometimes I have to reboot to close the window. It used to work just fine. I know my way around a bit but not an expert..just cant play on one of the laptops..frustrating. It started about a week ago. All other programs seem to work ok. Appreciate any help..Thank you.
