User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.9; rv:33.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/33.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20140625030206

Steps to reproduce:

1. Go to http://jsbin.com/lukugive/3/edit?js,output
2. Observe spinner firing (briefly) every time a new iframe is inserted


Actual results:

Loading spinner fires


Expected results:

No spinner should fire when an empty iframe is inserted. It seems unnecessary to cause a spinner in this circumstance. This issue affects Chrome as well (http://crbug.com/387251), but not Safari or IE.
Reproduced on 33.0a1 2014-06-29 Nightly under Win 7 64-bit.

This is a pure UI issue, no?  Empty iframes do perform an async about:blank load, so they do send progress notifications; what the UI wants to do with them is up to the UI.
