View Full Version : Useful internet speed test website, but it makes my Firefox crash

I stumbled across what looks like a promising website for testing the speed of your internet connection:

http://speed.io/

But for me, Firefox loads the main web page fine, but when I run the test, about the time it gets done with the download test, Firefox completely crashes and disappears (and the problem is repeatable). Does anyone else have the same problem in Firefox?

Runs perfectly for me. All tests excellent.

Have you tried speedtest.net?

The test worked fine for me - giving "excellent" ratings for all tests. And now I'm still in FF posting.

When it crashes, can you access a different window? or ctl+alt+Fn?

No, actually Firefox just completely disappears--it quits and I have to start it back up. Since neither you or "wannadumpwindows" has problems with the site crashing Firefox, then maybe mine crashes because of some particular add-on I've got or something. Oh well, I probably won't mess with trying to figure out why mine crashes, so thanks for the input. :)
