I have found most information does not apply to this issue so I've not included it.
In KDE, the content downloader (for wallpapers, themes, icons, etc) is extremely intrusive, with a loading overlay that becomes annoying quickly when not using a very fast internet connection. Every X amount of scrolls down the popup re-appears and is annoying to deal with because it flashes content in and out of the screen.
Instead, i propose that there be a small indicator at the bottom of the list that only appears when the list is trying to load more content, like in the image i have attached. I would greatly appreciate if this would be considered, and if this is in the wrong category, please point me in the right direction on where to open an issue.
Can confirm the issue, yeah. We should do better here.

Improve loading animation
Previously the user was made to wait for a full-window overlay loading
animation to be finished if they scrolled even a bit more by accident
to view the previously-fetched data, which felt frustrating. This commit
replaces that overlay with a busy indicator in the header.

This change is much appreciated. This annoyed me so much today :D
