View Full Version : [OPEN] Bug (?) Loading s.gif from extjs.com

21 Jun 2007, 4:46 AM
Hi there...

I was always very curious why Firefox told me "loading data from extjs.com", now I found out:

I loads http://extjs.com/s.gif

Is that a bug or a feature? ;)

I have not yet pointed out exactly where that comes from, as it is in the menu, it is not a css mistake...

I mean.. it's great for statistics, but slows down the init phase of my application about factor 10 at least (runs in a local network).

This is not a bug and has been discussed many times.
Look here http://extjs.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7413

I'm afraid this topic will continue to pop up many times in the forums, sometimes in Help, sometimes in General Discussion, and sometimes (as in this case) in the Bugs forum!

A search like this one in the forums:

"s.gif" extjs

or simply this one in the wiki:


would have pointed the user to the answer.

So, besides the apparent fact that searching is not always the first option when faced with a problem, it seems that new users of Ext should receive a "stronger" notification about how to proceed with this remote-image-issue. :-? Some suggestions have been made in the thread mentioned above.

Sorry for not searching first, but I was strongly assuming that this is a bug and therefore would have been removed if posted before.

Perhaps one should make one of the s.gif threads sticky if that question occurs that often.

I just found out that the examples.js has a line in it redefining it - I guess most of us just didn't see that.

It's alright, I thought it was a bug too. I had already written my post, but then decided to search for it right before posting it.
The lesson is: there are people here who have 1500+ posts. Most everything that a (relative) newbie needs to know has been discussed somewhere.
(Yes, I consider myself a relative newbie too). :)
