- Rated 3 out of 5by MX, 3 years agoDebería de dejar descargar las imágenes de instagram, al menos en Firefox, ya que la forma de descargar las imágenes de la pagina web, no es muy complicado si se accede a la información de la pagina web.
Developer responseposted 3 years agoAssuming the translation by google is correct: I won't build site-specific support into this tool. It's meant to be a generic image downloader that works well on sites with conventional HTML structures that expose images in an accessible way. Instagram is one of those sites with overly complicated, image-hiding webpage structures. I find a 2-star rating just for not working well on instagram a bit superficial since there's so much more to this addon and it works fine on most websites, but ok.
- Rated 4 out of 5by Firefox user 15950359, 4 years agoSuper fast to save images!
I would like to have an option to auto add a timestamp in filename when saving, to have: timestamp+original filename.
Thank youThat's not a bad idea, though the exact format will be an issue, and you could achieve this through your file manager and a renaming program, but that's understandably more effort. Maybe I can add y/m/d h/m/s variables that you can use as desired. I'm slogging through technical work on my addons right now and don't expect to work on new features for some time still though.

- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 12372411, 4 years agoNow I can give this a 5 stars since I have finally found an easy to use fix for users that have the problem about images getting saved without an file-extension! (especially images from Twitter) All that's needed is this batch file:
REM Change drive to D:/ because my files are there
REM If yours are on C, you can remove this and change all Ds to Cs
cd /d d:
REM Move only files WITHOUT an extension to TempDirectory
MOVE D:\Downloads\*. D:\TempDirectory\
REM Change directory to TempDirectory
REM Rename all files from "file" to "file.jpg"
ren *.* *.jpg
REM Move files back to origin folder
MOVE D:\TempDirectory\* D:\Downloads
I know it's not good practice to assume all images are JPEGs but it's enough to view them, which is all I wanted.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Andrei Muresan, 4 years agoAwesome little plugin. Thanks a lot. I'm rating and writing here even though I had to install Chrome in order to make use of the auto-rename options of the plugin.
I do work a lot with images and your plugin comes very handy. Yet, there's something I would really appreciate if you could add. Actually I'm thinking about 2 features:
1 / To be able to set a hotkey to reset %counter%
2 / Add %folder% variable with possibility to change it in options panel and QUICKLY by HOTKEY.
or hotkey to quickly edit Filename Pattern :)
or at least hotkey to plugin options? :)) then I'll have to scroll down and edit... :(
Hotkey to plugin options? - but please, if you do it by adding %folder% variable, add the edit form right above or below Hover Hotkey form, so that you don't have to scroll down to edit it.
I'm saving lots of images in sessions. I save 10-20 images, then again, but in new folder. And so on. That's why the requests above. The plugin already saves me time. But adding the features above would be more than awesome. I'm also going to send you a big beer using the button below :)
Yeah, I'm talking about the plugin for Chrome, of course :))
Cheers!Hey, glad you like it, thanks for the extensive post. Sorry for the late reply, life is busy.
Your #1 idea, sorry, but it's too much work to create a configurable hotkey just for that. I could do it as a toolbar button instead quite easily, but that feels odd. Anyway, please follow up on it here: https://gitlab.com/Marnes/doubleclick-image-downloader/-/issues/72
As for #2, what would %folder% refer to? If you mean changing the download folder itself, sorry, but I couldn't even if I wanted to. Modern addon design makes this a privileged browser setting, not for addons to control. If you have a different idea for %folder%, please post an issue on gitlab (like for #1) with an explanation.
Hotkeys for things are generally a lot of work and maintenance, and just not worth it then, sorry. As for the options screen order, changing the order would be good for one person but bad for someone else. I think it's balanced as it is now.
For your folders, would it be a solution if I added an alternative counter variable that would increment at a toolbar button press? Then you could set up a numeric folder pattern and hit the toolbar button to end one group of images in your session. Follow up here: https://gitlab.com/Marnes/doubleclick-image-downloader/-/issues/73
You'd be the first person to donate in a long time, and the first since I completely rewrote all my addons with a whole new coding framework and language, so it'd be much appreciated, thanks :)
- Rated 4 out of 5by Jalad, 4 years agoRemember last download folder option needed. Plz implement it asapModern addons are not able to control download locations, sorry. This is a deliberate design regarding user settings in browsers. I couldn't implement it even if I wanted to.
- Rated 5 out of 5by alphapack, 4 years agoWriting this review to give you an idea to fix already known issue (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/double-click-image-download/reviews/1464906/).
SOLUTION: Find a way to check if the filename contains any extension, if it doesn't then try to find the image type (AFAIK a lot of sites can do this already, so there might be a library for that) and then just add it to the filename.
Good luck :)Thanks for the constructive input, but unfortunately filename extensions are not a reliable way to determine file types. They can be missing, simply incorrect (how often I've come across a .jpg that was actually a png and vice versa...), or some website-specific filename thing that happens to have a period in it so it looks like an extension. Browsers can determine the content type themselves by looking at the data, but in HTTP requests the convention is that the server must provide a human-friendly filename with a convenient extension and only the browser can make a last ditch attempt. If a server provides no meaningful name for a file triggered by this addon, then there's nothing it can do to help the situation, it's the least qualified party involved.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Alice, 4 years agoSpectacular addon like no other. A must for someone like me. I noticed another review asking why saved images sometimes don't have an extension, which was my very question. I read your reply, and it didn't indicate to me whether or not it would be possible for the addon to default an extension in the settings or something, like automatically assign an extension of your or the user's choice to any picture. So, is that possible? Also, could you link to this addons.mozilla.org page in the description so it's easier to rate, and/or provide contact information? Thanks.I'm glad you like it, thanks for the message. "automatically assign an extension of your or the user's choice to any picture" this is possible, but it would be incorrect and bad behavior. Blindly defaulting to adding .jpg for example to any unknown image, means e.g. a png image could get the jpg extension. Nowadays this should cause no issues, but I consider it an anti-feature because it's simply wrong, so I will not implement it, sorry. Browsers have tricks to determine an extension and will do so whenever possible. If one cannot be determined by the browser, addons are not in a better position to try it. As for the AMO link, I'm surprised firefox doesn't provide that link by itself... So I guess, I might add AMO links to the descriptions next time I work on the text.
- Rated 4 out of 5by Umpahpah, 4 years agoHi, and thanks for all the work, that is first. The second, why I gave 3 stars, is due to 2 issues: First, it often save image without proper extension, which is a bit annoying, and second, it does not allow to save images where Save images as.... has been disabled, and I know it is not your fault, just to re-report, as I read the comments first. So, the biggest issue is extension flaw, sometimes.
Thanks for the reply - it is just then a question how the Save image as does not make that mistake....
In any way, I raised the review for one star :)Thanks for the detailed feedback. As for file extensions, extensions are not actually a required thing in filenames, they're more of a loose convention. Websites tend to forego them depending on how their images are loaded (e.g. from data streams rather than files). It's the browser's responsibility to determine an extension if at all possible, based on data from the webserver if provided (such as a suggested filename, with or without extension). It's really not within an addon's power to ensure the presence of file extensions, or infer any, sorry.
