Version 4.1.1-signed 36.2 kB Works with Firefox 26.0 and later

  • Automatically rename the file if it already exists (don't overwrite existing files)
  • A custom downloads folder can be set

Both features were requested by users. :)

Version 4.0.1-signed 35.9 kB Works with Firefox 26.0 and later

  • Added ability to rename the downloaded image according to a pattern that includes variables and a counter
  • Added ability to move downloaded images into a subfolder, also with variables (to .e.g. have a different folder for each website)
  • Click the toaster popup if you have it enabled to open the last used folder in a tab in Firefox
  • Added second toolbar button that lets you quickly configure file/folder names without opening the settings screen
This should go without saying, but... Check the settings!

Version 3.4.1-signed 29.3 kB Works with Firefox 26.0 and later

  • Added a hybrid image/link disabling option: enabling this allows you to download images that are inside a link by alt-double-clicking them. Firefox will ignore the link and download the image without navigating away between the mouseclicks. This is useful in image galleries where clicking a picture normally loads the next one.
Important note: enabling this option will cause Firefox to ignore any link for as long as you're holding down the Alt key.

Important notice: the new code requires an up-to-date build of Firefox to work!
I'm not sure of the exact version, but e.g. the current Palemoon (based on FF 24) is too old! Please test the add-on and email the results (working or not, OS details, Firefox build) to me via the support email link.
A future version (6 days from now) may re-introduce support for older Firefox builds.

Version 2.1.1-signed 15.8 kB Works with Firefox 21.0 and later

  • Added a panel to the preview widget. Click the (empty) preview widget to display a larger panel with the image in full size and proportional dimensions.
