Hello, I think there is a problem in my Firefox settings because on the same Mac, with the same fiber connection to the same server I get very different speedtest results. With Firefox I get almost 300 Mb/s, with Chrome almost 700 Mb/s. I tried on other speedtest sites with same results. I use OpenDNS and I don't use VPN. What can I check to fix this difference?

Anyway, the problem is the speed difference between Firefox and Chrome at same conditions.
