    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

    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.
