Not sure if this was mentioned. I found a problems with media bbcode but didn't seem related to this.

When up click on the media button you see the background color, or image in our case.
Similar problem to the quick reply box.

Screenshot? Nothing would've really changed here recently.
The first image flashes briefly using the same background we have on the site.
You can see the background in the lower image just above Enter media URL.

It would be nice if the image/media dialogs loaded faster (why are they iframes anyway?) - right now they take up to 5 seconds for me. Quicker to type the bbcode manually.

For this issue, that's the expected behavior - the dialogs are a separate page, in iframes as noted. That is what the loading screen will show (hence why it's grey here).

They are iframes as we're using TinyMCE for that. Though additionally, iframes work well when dealing with focus/selection management. It's quite important to maintain the editor's selection or caret position. Blurring to another part of the document can mess that up.
