Steps to reproduce

  1. Load any site with a regular <link rel=stylesheet> stylesheet tag.
  2. Open the F12 tools.
  3. Go to the Network tab.
  4. Reload until you see the double request.

I can confirm that this is actually a double request, because the server reports two hits. (You can use a tool like npm install http-server &amp;&amp; http-server -p 8000 to debug this.)

Oddly one CSS requets is reported as link and the other as XMLHttpRequest, giving the false impression that there’s an XHR somewhere requesting the CSS (when in fact there’s no JavaScript on the page at all).

  • We are showing this as fixed in our later builds of RS1. Unfortunately we do not have an estimate on when you can expect to see these fixes, but they are on the way to those on insider builds sooner rather than later.

    Thank you for the feedback and we look forward to more feedback from you.

    All the best,
