Third party Avatar thumbnails often not loading in the alert drop down

Affected version

I've noticed this many times on both my site and the official XF site, on the alert dropdown the avatars will frequently not load.


This is on Chrome with the latest OSX.

Do you have a gravitar? Because it applied to your avatar before this page loaded after clicking the alert link.

You avatar was empty, it is no longer.

Maybe, but then you have the inevitable problem of when you change them at Gravatar and they don't update here.

It's actually a fairly rare issue. It happens every so often, but it's not usually a long term thing.
