FWIW, I'm new to Firefox this week and just installed 2.0 today. Having no problems loading pictures. I belong to a rat terrier dog group where owners post lots of pics of their dogs all the time and I just went out and opened up numerous picture-laden threads (4-5 photos per post). Firefox 2.0 opened them up in the blink of an eye. I'm on a Win XP machine with 512 MB ram and my signature indicates what's running realtime. Maybe you have a lot of programs killing your available ram? This would surely do what you are describing.
