Extension Page Download Counter


I just noticed that the "download counter" on an extension view increases every time I reload the page.

For me having just published a new extension and changing the docs a couple of times, my extention already shows "downloaded 22 times". Nice, er?

Best regards,



I just noticed that on the download tab, the counter states the number of downloads for a screenshot which I had in the introduction text.

But it seems that just refering to this image in the indroduction text also increases the download counter for the extension.


Very strange It happens only on your extension…

Just giving refresh increments the number of downloads… I checked and it happens only with your extension…

will have to wait for Qiang to check this…

Yes this is obviously because of the screenshot in the documentation (the tabs are preloaded).

I changed the reference to the screenshot from being an inline image to just a link.
