Greetings! I sometimes use the Google Fiber speedtest site to test download speeds:

http://speedtest.googlefiber.net/

I've found the site doesn't fully load in Firefox 64 (64.0 on Ubuntu 18.10 Linux (64-bit) and 64.0.2 on Windows 7 (32-bit)). Could someone here try and see if it works for you? Here's the deal: the page loads, but the test server is identified such that the speed test can't be run.

When I view the same page in Opera or Chromium, the test server is identified and I can run the speed test.

Thanks!

Initial page opens properly but hitting the button brings up this warning.
Run speed test?
You are not on the Google Fiber network.
Running a speed test on your mobile network may result in data charges.
Cashless society sacrifices independence, privacy and lastly liberty, encouraged by ignorance and villainy.

Works fine on my end (FF 64), hitting 'Continue' at the "warning" prompt.

Thanks for the replies! I managed to get the test to work in Firefox 74 on Mint 18 but not on Ubuntu 18.10. So, it must be something unique to my system and not Firefox.

Thanks!!!

Peace...
