Inconsistent speeds on different applications and browsers

Why am I getting to different results when I test internet speeds between Firefox, Chrome and Edge and other apps? (Firefox is the only browser that is getting me maximum speeds, and all the others apps and devices perform less than half).

 

Background: 

1) Was on Telus Fiber and get the speeds advertise with no variables. I switched to Shaw and can't seem to get a consistent speed.

2) No torrents running or anything that would require me to lose bandwidth speed

3) Updated all of my drivers

4) Inconsistency happens when plugged into model and on wifi. 

5) I am on SHAW 300 and get that on Firefox and my phone only the rest the devices and apps get 1/3 

6) On wired I get 1g and on Wifi I get 300 mb per adapter settings

7) I am using Windows 10 and I do have the latest update

8) I pad 2 mini gets 1/3 of the allotted speeds. 

9) I am minutes away from the modem.

10) I have tired a new account on windows 10 and still same results

11) Autotuning is disabled

12) I am using DNS 9.9.9.9 and I tried 1.1.1.1 too

 

If Firefox gets 300 mb per second so It cannot be my device -- though a Shaw Tech (Brent 2017) told me I have shitty equipment (his words).
