(edit) I am also having serious issues with video/images loading in my browsers. Photo's will load partialy, some video will run, often it will not, it will allow me to start it, but then just sit there and not play. One other item which may or may not be important, I first noticed all of this when I logged into yahoo mail. I was running the new version, not classic at the time. I got an error that it was unable to display the page and offered a series of fixes. One of the fixes offered was to clear your cookies and cache, I took that option, opening firefox option and selecting the option to remove them all. After that the system has been in terrible shape.
