This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Maybe because it does not meet the quality standards... being too short is a common cause. – Bob May 1 '12 at 14:25
It's so nice having a search... Throttling Bandwidth on Firefox How to limit download traffic in Firefox Simulate limited bandwidth from within Firefox? The top one is most recent, therefore most up to date. – Bob May 1 '12 at 14:31
I removed the second part of your question. Questions about the site Super User itself belongs on Meta Super User – Nifle May 1 '12 at 14:32
@XinHua Then please indicate that when you ask your question. Show all your research so we can avoid providing redundant information. Fishing for information is not fun. Also, see the first question I linked to, that one's more recent (i.e. after Throttle was no longer relevant). – Bob May 1 '12 at 14:59
@XinHua In what way was NetLimiter (as suggested in the answers to all three questions) not useful? How does it not suit your requirements? Please be specific. Does the program/method need to be portable? Then say so. I can guess from the fact that you're using a portable copy of Firefox, but I don't want to guess. Tell me. As your question stands, NetLimiter is a viable solution (it can limit speeds to Firefox, which is your question). – Bob May 1 '12 at 15:23

The best way is using NetLimiter.

Here's a video on how to do it.

In summary:

  • Download NetLimter (freeware and paid option available)
  • Install the software.
  • Choose the programs you wish to limit download speed for.

Done thanks. Should have done that without thinking. – Mark R May 1 '12 at 19:54
Thanks! I added a little formatting (make sure to check our tools for that) and removed salutations and irrelevant stuff from your answer if you don't mind. – slhck May 1 '12 at 19:56
gotcha, exactly how it should be. Really nice to be taught a way to be good at using the mighty stack. I will look forward to answering more questions. – Mark R May 1 '12 at 20:09
