That picture looks like the right-hand side is showing the "request
details" of the fifth request down, the red "info" one.

Look at the first few successful requests instead.

Or maybe "view source" of the main page, and look at the html that
was returned. What puts the word "localhost" into that html?

I don't see that.

Can you see or show the complete response to the initial request?

I think it probably does not need to be changed.

I think that either you need to add some nginx proxy_redirect lines; or
you need to change the vue setup to never use the word "localhost". Or
maybe both.

If you can show where the word "localhost" appears in the response to the
request for, it may be clearer where the change should be made.
