--- Comment #1 from Brion Vibber <br...@wikimedia.org> ---
There are a couple of distinct issues here:

1) the src isn't just the http(s) src as expected, and

2) the src is a data: URI, which is horribly inefficient

One could fix 2) by loading a blob instead of an ArrayBuffer and using
createObjectURI()... but it would still be a URL that can't be copy-pasted
usefully.


However I would probably recommend simply loading the image an an invisible
<img> rather than an XHR; you won't get a chance at a full progress bar (just a
delay then 'onload' or 'onerror') but the image will interact with things more
or less as expected.
