    Hello,
    My installation of Firefox was running fine, then slowed down my internet connection to less than 1mbps. I have done clean install several times and installed an older version 3.6, then the newest version. I made a point of saving my profile folder (renamed so it didn't cause a conflict), but cleaning out all other files. The new install tests about 3+mbps and when I re-test a second time (within minutes) It is down to 1mbps. This happens over and over.
    IE is installed and it consistently runs at 3+mbps. Can anyone suggest a solution?
    Jeff

    I just used speedtest.net 2 times in a row, in FF safe mode, and got the same result.
    First time 3+, second .84
