ProgressIndicator keeps popping up while no client interaction


We’re having an issue where the progress indicator keeps popping up but there’s no activity going on.
This only occurs in Internet Explorer 8. IE 9 or higher does not have this issue.

We’re working with Vaadin 7.1.5.
Does anyone know what causes this behaviour and how it could be fixed ?

From the network tab in Chrome were seeing /application/UIDL paths. Example attached.


if there’s no user interaction, are you sure that polling is not enabled for your application? Polling will create periodical requests to the server to see if there’s any updated data etc.
