This is hrev48742.

This is from the comments of #11680.
The screenshot window currently always opens with the size of the last viewed screenshot. Since it takes some time to download the shot, a relatively big black window hangs around until it's resized and filled with the downloaded image.

The window could, however always start with the same, relatively small, size. Maybe even with a string in it "Downloading screenshot...", in case the connection is extremely slow.

Maybe a subtle animation in screenshot preview would do?

Please note that there is a general approach of using the status bar / progress bar in indeterminate mode to show progress when performing network activity. See UserUsageConditionsWindow and the use of BarberPole.
