I noticed this behaviour after I downloaded the latest update for the browser.
The link above has a shockwave in it. It plays smoothly. But if I click "stop"

I dont know if this is a related issues, buy images on many sites are not 
shown. e.g. and hotmail.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to the above URL. The shockwave will start playing stop start. 

Actual Results:  
Shockwave does not restart.

I dont know if this is due to number of images loaded. One of the pages has 
lots of small images in it. But my computer has 512 MB ram and firefox and 
adobe are the only applications running. So RAM shouldnt be a problem.
