- by Firefox user 12655708, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5Did what I wanted. Thanks. You should mention that the user selects what site(s) the extension operates on. As opposed to being all-site always-on, or having to toggle every time you visit the same site. Which means it requires an absolute minimum of effort from the user, which is great.
- by Esoteric Snarge, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5I've been using Absolute Enable for some time and like it a lot. Absolute is a very convenient time saver, but it can't do everything. Not fair to down rate it if you don't bother to learn WHY your expectations aren't being met.
Some people send me images via Lightshot, one of a bazillion screen capture uts. Despite Absolute being enabled on said pages, Right Clicking to copy an image or trying to drag the image to desktop results in a dreaded "OMG, nothing happened" or "WTF, why am I getting a page link instead of an image??" I don't blame Absolute, I don't rate it poorly. Ragging on an add-on or program is the lazy way of computer-illiterate "reviewers."
I'm not violating any law by posting very public info. The image you "can't copy" is ON you PC monitor and ON your hard drive courtesy of the web site itself, and so too might be a direct image link (and I don't mean just the shortened URL in the address window) that might need excerpting and following. Learn how to reveal and then check Source Code. You've got multiple ways to snag pretty much whatever you want. If all else fails, snag it right off the bloody screen using one of dozens of free monitor image capture utilities and if necessary, stitch the images together with another utility you should have in your tool kit. It's up to you what you choose to do with any image (or text) that may be blocked or blurred by a clear/blurry layer of pixels intentionally put on top of it by the programmers. You can ignore or honor copyright law and deal with the consequences and your conscience. Please feel free to correct any errors in the above or add more info.
BTW, you might also want to double check jpg/png files right after you 'think' you've saved an awesome image to avoid reality from raining on your parade. If you've been shoveling images into a folder for a long time thinking you've got some great "stuff" you may discover a bunch of 1kb files - clear cover pixel gifs - or an html page link instead of the image you wanted. An image viewer can help you quickly skim through your image folder(s)... be sure to use your PC camera to capture your face as it turns white with dismay.
