Advanced Editor WYSIWYG generating multiple errors

I just launched a new website and a Vanilla forum embedded within a Wordpress installation and I have Wordfence Security. I am seeing dozens and dozens of errors every time someone loads a page that has the Advanced Editor WYSIWYG console. That problems is a bad url reference for http://websitename/applications/dashboard/design/images/upload-progress-back.gif when in fact the forum is located at All other parts of the Vanilla Forum URL's include the forum directory except for this one item.

Please advise how I can fix this so users don't get their IP blocked for multiple "Page Not Found" errors being generated looking for the gif.

    Please look inside the editor.css file and find this code remove the slash in front of the url as I did bellow and see if that corrects the problem. I would simply add my own progress gif with the url to the gif image.

    .editor-upload-progress {
        position: absolute;
        width: 0%;
        overflow: hidden;
        background: #38ABE3 url('applications/dashboard/design/images/upload-progress-back.gif') repeat;
        margin: -2px 0 0 0;
        width: 0;
        height: 5px;
        border: 1px solid #38ABE3;
        opacity: 0;
        box-shadow: 0 1px 2px -1px #fff;
        -moz-box-sizing: border-box;
        box-sizing: border-box;

    Ok... so your suggestion did not work. And it was really the /scss/partials/_fileupload.scss file that was causing most of the problems. So I was editing both. After a number of attempts in a variety of url configurations I finally relented and created an images directory in editor/design/ and then copied the gif from the original directory. Then modified both files like this... background: #38ABE3 url('images/upload-progress-back.gif') repeat;

    This seems to have resolved the errors :)
