Running a speed test in Firefox will show lower download speeds, in some cases just a fraction of the speed of my broadband connection, both on Windows and Linux installations of Firefox Browser. Safe Mode makes no difference. Other browsers show normal speeds.

Why is my internet speed so slow in Firefox? Is there anything I can do to speed it up? My speed is 110Mbps faster in Google Chrome. That is doing numerous speed tests on both browsers. I have no extensions or addons running. I have the latest version. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Hello,

When using Firefox, my network speeds are brutally slow (~35 Mbps), while Edge is (~300 Mbps, which is my service speed). I am hardwired through my router, but it is the same wired or wireless.

I have literally tried every single step through Firefox's troubleshooting and have even completed what I thought to be an entire uninstall and deletion of every single Firefox file on my laptop. Upon uninstall and deleting of EVERYTHING, I reinstalled only to be greeted with "Hey, it looks like you reinstalled Firefox, want to refresh everything?". I did (another) refresh and still, same speeds.

Is there a way to 100% remove Firefox and reinstall? I want my laptop/Firefox to treat each other as never have met, in hopes that I can install and get the speeds I should be getting.

Interesting note, Firefox for Android gets ~300 Mbps no problem on my phone.

Thanks in advance!

I live in the mountains of North Wales so am at the end of a lot of copper or (even) aluminium wires. I rotate ISPs regularly and have been at this shit since the WWW was invented and have even bought a Cisco router to host our own web site in the 1990s. I KNOW that the ISPs manage my connection speeds, router management software WILL be more capable than the Cisco router we managed ourselves!! I notice a similar profile of getting the speeds that are advertised at the start of a contract and then to throttle it as they add more customers to the same kit that they lease from OpenReach; increased latency! I also get OpenReach business notifications and know that the ISPs pay OpenReach for not only bandwidth that they use but also the electricity that powers them, OpenReach also charge for shit loads more but lets stick to the simples! ALL the ISPs deny ANY management function which is disengenuous to say the least!! There is a worrying trend in businesses to not only have no usable phone numbers (I had about eight BT numbers when we had the Cisco Router but NONE work anymore) due to the telephony shit that infests what laughly passes for customer service these days. {Thinks: Is there an undisclosed word limit to this field!?!?? I daren't hit return to go to a new para 'cause it might send like the excreble messaging systems which pass for comms in these benighted days!! My point for the designers of Firefox is: when I try to do "Speed test I can count up to FIVE seconds before a Ping is registered which is never more than a 100ms so that's bollocks! Then it doesn't matter how many tabs I have open (often shit loads) the speeds that I get are independant and even when I'm "listening" to radio articles that doesn't effect the results either! A GENUINE speed test should be built into Firefox don't ya think??

Speedtest.net is giving me different results than Vivaldi or Edge. The download testing speeds are all over the place and choppy compared to the other browsers, and a tad slower overall result too. The upload speeds are fine. What does this mean?
