UserAvatar.ashx and performance issue

Friday, June 3, 2016
When accessing SpiraTest/3/TestSet/ pages, I can see that there are hundreds and hundreds of HTTP requests sent for http://xxxx/SpiraTest/UserAvatar.ashx?userId=yyy&themeName=InflectraTheme, where yyy is a userid, every time a page is loaded.
This causes slowdowns in both ends, server and browser. These requests should be removed.
SpiraTest version v4.2.0.8.

Hi Jari

These are for the user avatar images and are simply called by the IMG tags. Normally the browser caches them after the first request.
