    MacBook downloads incredibly slow
    Compared to the PC, my MacBook downloads incredibly slow. The PC downloaded the new version (the mac install file) for Thunderbird in like 2 or 3 minutes while the MacBOok took an hour....its am 18mb file!! (And I made sure it was exactly the same file) so I know it isn't the server for Mozilla going slow. Why is my MacBook so slow? Its even slower (~3 kb/sec as opposed to ~5-7 kb/sec) when I plug it into the same Linksys router the PC is plugged in to (PC downloaded file at ~160 kb/sec). Both systems were using Safari too

    I would check your setup. You may need to reset your router or even power cycle your setup.

    even though both the slow and fast computers are hooked up to the same router? And what on the setup should I check?

    Something is wrong. Just went to mozilla and grabbed the latest Thunderbird. Tried several Macs and my PC's. All got over 200KB/s and it was done in just over a minute.
