The FoxyProxy animated icon is imprecise. When FoxyProxy sends an HTTP request through a proxy whose Add/Edit Proxy->General Tab->Animate icons when proxy is in use checkbox is checked, the FoxyProxy icon begins animating for 800 milliseconds. If the resource associated with the request finishes loading before 800 milliseconds have elapsed, the icon continues to animate anyway. Contrast this to the behavior of the Firefox throbber, which remains animated until all resources finish loading. This kind of precision animation is something we might introduce in a later FoxyProxy release, and it is for this reason we don’t refer to the icon as a throbber.
