Setting Access-Control-Allow-Origin in my space doesn't work with *

I’ve set my headers in my space to be Access-Control-Allow-Origin:* with all permissions set. Every time I load in an image from the space onto my localhost, every request to that image doesn’t work. Here’s an image you can try it on:

What gives? I keep getting an error that I feel I shouldn’t be receiving after setting it.

Thanks in advance!
