    Exclamation Flickring refresh button in Chrome

    First of all, the link: http://www.fristil.se/ny/nyheter/

    As you load the page (in Google Chrome) the browsers Refresh button starts flickering.
    Here is a video I made, showing what I mean:

    For troubleshooting purposes, I tried disable JavaScript in my browser. The problem disapears.

    So... what script is causing this?
    I first noticed the problem when i was messing around with the fancybox settings in theme.js, but it might not be related to that.

    Your poll is missing an option....the "nothing's wrong" option.

    The refresh button changes to a stop button when something is being loaded in the current chrome tab. When you reload the page, something starts to load (e.g. like a facebook like button or google +1 button) after the page has rendered.

    Because something is being loaded, the refresh button changes to a stop button (in case you want to stop the current action) but because it occurs so fast, it looks like the refresh button is "flickering"

    Like I said, external API buttons (like twitter, facebook, or google) are usual culprits, but definitely not always - anything that is loaded into the page after the page has been rendered will cause this effect.

    Hope that helps.
