Bug Description

Following the tutorial here (, I created my own lens.

However, I noticed the wikipedia icon didn't load. I continued on. After installing another lens I noticed images didn't load there.

So I restarted my X server, and ran the *already installed* lens I had written. Images now loaded for everything.

After running `sudo quickly install` and `quickly run` for the extension after making changes, all externally requested images now failed to load.
