Download Manager is Giving You the Finger
"When the download manager is on screen, the background image of that window (folder with arrow pointing down) looks like distractingly like a hand with middle finger up."
It's only in the default theme, and it's been marked as WONTFIX.
Adrian Holovaty reported a dupe of the bug:
One might say the developer who quashed the suggestion raised his middle finger at us.
That irony is classic.
Glad to see that it's been marked as WONTFIX. Primarily, it's an arrow. No need to fix that.
It should be fixed, it's composed badly. Things like this matter, sorry.
James is right. If it accidentally looked like a penis or a swastika, you'd certainly say it should be changed.
This one's a bit milder, but ought to be changed (corners instead of rounded edges on the arrow? A tapered tail?).
Sorry, this looks nothing more than a default download arrow telling general users something if downloading to their computer. Nothing more.
Though I guess I could never do those magic eye's!
shut up shut up shut up shut up
It's arrow. Grow up.
This is a good reason why Windows users should upgrade to 98SE.
I think I see the face of Jesus in there too.
Someone has one hell of an imagination to consider that as a middle finger. Either that or way too much time on their hands.
I does look like a finger to me, but only after seeing this post. I never noticed before, and I've been using Firefox since the day it came out.
I don't think it should be removed. Remember the days when programmers left all kinds of little easter eggs in there programs? It seems kind of like an easter egg to me.
Keep it, i'll consider it as an insult to IE.
OMG i can see my penix in that image.... Is it really that small? oh n0s...
