Sorry, Flickr Original could not view/download this photo
Yes, simply stopped working months ago.
"Sorry, Flickr Original could not view/download this photo."
@ 0300 Pacific time, December 9, after a recent firefox update, and after a very recent add-on update.
Error: "Could not download original Flickr photo"
Why do Flickr have to break HTML by trying to restrict people from saving photos? We'll find a way.
Magnificent. Working like a charm on firefox 31 on linux :D Thanks matey so much.
Used to work well, but now it doesn't work at all. Bummer. 2 stars based on the past.
anyone know of an equivalent to this add on?
now getting a dialog box saying
Sorry, Flickr Original could not view/download this photo.
If you click a photo in a photostream and then immediately click the photo when it expands then you will see the menu options when you right click. If you wait for more than a second, however, the options will not appear. Seems like the author simply needs to come back and think of a way to circumvent whatever is blocking our right-click and the addon would work again.
Not Work Any More -_-"
I downloaded several photos from here http://www.flickr.com/photos/planetaryblog/sets/72157627928170331/ and later all the images saved to my computer were changed to this photo http://farm1.static.flickr.com/3/5118236_94f976f34e_o.jpg (see another review) What gives?
Not working for me on this date, June 13, 2013 after the "New Flickr"
It's not working Like did before.
All the time is not getting the original picture (1536 x 2048) but
It's getting smaller format (768 x 1024) and many times will not get any thing.
It looks like the Flickr re-design did something to break this app. It did work for a couple of days, but now all it does it take me to this photo. http://farm1.static.flickr.com/3/5118236_94f976f34e_o.jpg If the devs are still around this addon needs help.
Tried right clicking on Flickr thumbnails, photoset, lightbox. I see the options for View and Download original, but when I click that, I get: "Sorry, Flickr Original could not view/download this photo."
I right click on the flickr image, then choose "Large" - in the new Window I right click again and choose "show original flickr image" and I get it in a new tab, ready to be saved as a jpg. Works as described most of the time, convenient.
First time I have tried this add on and it works for what I use it for. I use it to get around photos that have been disabled from being downloaded. Just click an image size then right click on the image and the option to download the original is there.
Just reinstalled my computer, so had to go refinding all my favorite addons - this was one of them.
Could do with more features but useful
Had been doing the job very well, then quit working. When it starts working again, my only wish would be that it would open the image in the same tab, not a new tab.
UPDATE: It seems the trick to making this work is to right click directly over the image. This needs to be corrected.
great addon. not used very often, but when i do use it, it is very handy to have around.
I wouldn't mind an option for opening the image in the tab in the background...!
But still - it's almost perfect!!
Unfortunately, it still doesn't work. I am using the newest version at http://jzlabs.com/stuff/flickr_original_1.0.8.xpi and Firefox 9.0.1 on Windows XP. I get the same error message "Sorry, Flickr Original could not view/download this photo"
You can get the latest version from http://jzlabs.com/stuff/flickr_original_1.0.8.xpi
god bless you for this! or buddah, wotan....
