Anki 2.1 huge delay in loading of images

Ever since I have started using Anki 2.1 there is a massive delay in loading images, mostly a visible delay (image only shows later than the rest of the card).

This has never happened in Anki 2.0. Images always loaded instantly. I have never noticed any delay at all. Ever.

Why is that, and more importantly, what can I do about it? (Other than compress each image in a vast media collection that NEVER CAUSED THE SLIGHTEST PROBLEM separately down to minimal file size.)

Anki 2.1. also takes quite long on startup, at least twice as long as Anki 2.0. That is less annoying than the image problem but not ideal. Is there anything that can be done about it?

    The new web toolkit requires loading images in a different way that is not as efficient. You may be able to improve the performance by adding an exception for Anki to your antivirus program/Windows defender.
