Double-click Image Downloader Version History

26 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 5.4.2 21.9 KiB Works with Firefox 38.0a1 and later

  • reduced probability of e.g. lightbox/darkroom image galleries detecting clicks on the download button

Version 5.4.0 23.7 KiB Works with Firefox 38.0a1 and later

  • added configurable 0-padding to download counter
  • added switch to disable double-click mode in case you only want to use the single-click feature
  • added link override feature: ctrl-alt-clicking on a link prevents the link from opening so that a double-click lets you download an image inside it. I personally dislike this feature for technical reasons and recommend against using it

Version 4.1.1-signed 35.4 KiB 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 35.0 KiB 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 28.6 KiB 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.

All these are features requested by users. Enjoy! :)
