Images in longer posting are blurred

I’m having this posting:

Whenever I load/reaload the posting for the very first time, some/all images look blurry:

When then hitting F5 to reload the page, it is getting better and shows all or at least nearly all of the images:

Sometimes, a second F5 is needed to really load all of the images.

When inspecting the blurry images, I discovered that they are not the acutal JPEGs, but some 10×10 pixel PNGs.

My environment

  • Windows 10 64 bit German
  • Google Chrome Version 75.0.3753.4 (Offizieller Build) dev (64-Bit)

My question

Are there some settings I could adjust to always have the images loaded initially?

I can’t seem to repro this. The images all load on Safari, Chrome, and Firefox.

Thanks. I can reproduce it, when selecting the third option in Google Chrome’s reload button:

“Clear cache and fully reload”

(Translated from German).

The first few images are visible, the later images are blurry, again.

When looking in Chrome’s Developer Console, I do see no errors and some warnings:

The screen then looks like this:

Can you repro this in a clean install of Firefox? Try that first. If it does not repro there, it is something about your Chrome install.

If you are the site owner have you tried in Discourse safe mode?

Safe mode didn’t help.

Will try clean Firefox now in VMware.

The issue also happens on the new Edge Canary that is based on Chromium:

On my development PC:

On a VMware machine:

Even in incognito mode:

It does not happen on Firefox or the normal Edge.

What I discovered is that on Firefox, the blurry images do occur, but only for approx. half a second and then they are replaced by the actual images.

So to me it looks like some JavaScript events (maybe some “image gets scrolled into viewport”) do not get fired in Chromium as they are getting in non-Chromium.

Most likely is that edge canary is pretending it supports intersection observer and in fact does not.

There is a big reason we don’t support alpha browsers.
