Thank you for testing.  Weird.  I cannot see it (see attached with no "GIF"
entry int he index).  I've tried on various flavors of macOS with TeXLive
2017, 2018, and 2019.  All fail. I also tried on RHEL7, with LyX 2.3.2 and
TeXLive 2018, and it also fails.

I'm glad to know it works, at least for someone.  I'll continue digging,
but I'd be happy to know if anyone else sees GIF in the index pointing to
Image Formats, or not.

Thank you,
