    High Ping while running speed test on Firefox


    Hey Guys,

    Can anyone else confirm this for me. Firefox updated to version 40 recently and ever since when I run a speedtest I get a very high Ping. I went from 10-15ms to over 150ms testing my local ISP servers. My download and upload speeds are fine. When I try Chrome or Edge I get my normal ping. Any ideas as to why this is happening?

    PS I really like Firefox *Redface

    Regards

    :)

    Bind specific Apps to specific network interface

    Hello, I have 2 network interfaces, one is a slow unmetered low-speed/high-ping and the other one is a high-speed/low-ping metered connection. I would like to know if it's possible to set some apps to use only the low speed network interface and other apps
    (like online-games) to use only the high speed connection.

    Thanks

  3. weird problems with win 10

    Hello Jimmy,

    It looks like you're currently facing latency issues here. Based on your description, we suspect that there might be some network configuration issues on your end. Have you run a speed test already? If you haven't, please do so.

    Your speed test results should show us at least 60% of what your service provider promised. When you run a speed test and the ping is too high - it's a bad sign. You may also try to do some pinging of the websites you normally visit and let us know the results.
    Do a speed test both wired and wireless and compare the results.

    In addition, to guide you on how to troubleshoot issues within your network, we highly recommend you carefully review this Microsoft article:
    Fix network connection issues in Windows 10

    Give it a try and keep us informed about the outcome.

    High Ping while running speed test on Firefox

    Since nobody else wanted to test I tried it on my laptop and other desktop. Firefox 40 does give a bad reading with SpeedTest. Just some information if anyone else is getting similar results and thinks it's your ISP.
