New versions of Firefox are very slow for download speeds. 50% of what is available from my provider. Safari is at 100%. Is this from security and filters ?

Recently updated to the latest 2 versions and Firefox is failing download speed wise. Upload speeds are what they should be. I have ran speed tests from multiple sources and all return a similar range - 40-60Mbps. My provider speed is 100Mbps. I have run the same tests with Safari and it is operating at 100% speed wise. Are new security features and / or tracking filters responsible for this slow down ?

I teach at James Madison University and must download zip and jpg files for instruction. Sometime within the last 48 hours, Firefox would not download any jpg or zip files. For years now, this has never been an issue. The tab indicates connecting, the grey shadow passes through the tab and then nothing. I have tried this at different academic sites and the same happens. There is no problem downloading zip or jpg files using Chrome. What happened and how to fix it?
