I did experience this, and I had to tweak the following settings in
about:config before the experience became usable:

    network.http.pipelining: true
    network.http.pipelining.maxrequests: 10
    network.http.pipelining.ssl: true

get ugly black boxes images if there is an resized image in the loaded
