the tab loading icon: http://i.imgur.com/lNMPN7i.png (courtesy WorMzy), stays static instead of being animated.

This started happening after the Firefox 25 update.

This problem does NOT seem to occur with the Mozilla provided binaries.

As an added note, this bug appears to not be present in firefox aurora-branch builds.

Has anyone tried rebuilding extra/firefox through abs to see if the bug is still present?

Yup https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1344080#p1344080 but didn't go far because he only had 16 GB RAM.

I killed off everything non-essential and reran the build overnight, problem persists on the locally compiled package. I'll try rebuilding with the following commit reverted https://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/commit/trunk/PKGBUILD?h=packages/firefox&id=78d23063cd3713c40ec1811ee3cb0405d459ef62 and see if that helps.

Success! Using the 'fixed' loading.png image in the build brings back the animation. I have no idea where that leaves us though. I don't think it's an upstream problem, since Mozilla's precompiled binaries don't have the same problem. Unless they're buildng those with a 'fixed' image, but shipping sources with a broken one?

I have the same issue, and though minor I find it quite annoying, so here's another workaround that doesn't involve recompiling FF: Copy the animated loading.png[1] to your profile, inside folder chrome
In that same folder chrome, edit your userChrome.css (or create it if you don't have one yet) and add the following:

--8<------
/* fix bug in FF25, loading icon not being animated */
.tab-throbber[progress] {
list-style-image: url("loading.png") !important;
}
--8<------

Restart FF, and enjoy an animated icon while loading again.

Thanks @jjacky. That's work for me, but I think ARCH package need to be update.
