Only sunday evening and this morning I have found videos stopping and starting by themselves with Firefox 4.1 with Linux Mint 11 live dvd. Not happened before

Was watching bbc olympics on internet of Andy Murray live, then I went back to see last 5 minutes again (which had worked before also with bbc olympics and same Live Linux Mint 11 running Firefox 4.0.1) and then problem started. Since then I have had same problem with other bbc olympics videos or with youtube. Even recurred after restarting computer again with same live dvd -r even though I've been using this for internet over last months without problem. I notice that my modem can start flickering since I start videos and carry on flickering for a while after I stop video - but I don't know if that's relevant. I had thought this was to do with the bbc, but was then having same problems with youtube videos. Another thing might have been that I had earlier in the evening added the 'https finder .85' but this was only applicable during that session - unless somehow I've suffered repurcussions from the ISP for doing that??? Any ideas?

Did you check in the System Monitor for programs that use a lot of CPU time and for (excessive) network traffic?
