No More Packet Delay.

heepbigchief asked 2 years ago

"Over the past few days I have noticed that any program I have that wishes to connect to the internet, something about the IO function is suffering approximately a 15 second delay in sending packets to my ISP."

Periodically I look at all my "Options" in Firefox to make sure everything is still the way I want it.

In Menu/Tools/Options/Advanced/Network/Settings, I saw that "No Proxy" had been changed to "Use System Proxy Settings."

I put it back and now I'm back to the real speed I am accustomed to. I don't have any "Use System Proxy Settings." that I am aware of or a system proxy so how could this work after being changed anyway and how could it have gotten changed when I didn't do it and I'm the only one that uses this comp?

Mine is set to "Use System Proxy Settings". That must be the default for FireFox as I've never made any changes there. If you had previously set it to "No Proxy" then perhaps one of the recent updates set it back to default.

With mine in the "Use System Proxy Settings" setting, my FF cruises along just fine...no slow downs as far as I notice.

I have a bit of a suggestion for you: you may want to go check out the Firefox user forums for stuff like this.

I mean, you're welcome to ask away in here, and we'll help the best we can, but this site was built around discussions of TCP/IP. Between all the readers and participants here, maybe someone can help you out, and we'll certainly try, but don't you think you'd get an answer more quickly from a forum dedicated to tweaking and troubleshooting Firefox?

Just something to think about. I make it a habit of using product-specific forums first, then more general ones only if that doesn't work for me.
