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?

Hi. I am downloading Quicktime files (QT) from our advertising server. I work in the media industry. I love Firefox, but now that the "DOWNTHEMALL" extension has been made redundant, I try to use built in download. This starts my downloads, but they keep failing. How can I diagnose what the issue is? The download folder is an attached hard drive with 4TB of capacity, all other browsers on my laptop have no issues downloading files to it (Brave, Chrome, Safari), only Firefox fails at around 50 to 60% mark. What's up?

under " tools >> page info " (ie, ctrl-i)

when you save an item, and that filename already exists, can we have (an option) to automatically add (2), (3), (4) (and so on) to the saved file? (ie, not over write it, but to save as 'next number')

at the moment, if you don't manually add a number, it's "overwrite file yes/no". it would be convenient to have (an option) to automatically add filename (number).ext
