Very simply, it's as if the add-on wasn't installed at all. Not just saying it doesn't work, saying it doesn't even _show_. I read a short article about downloading all album photos in one shot, and it mentioned this add-on as one of the possibilities . . . but when it was written, the version of Firefox that was current was Firefox _4_ for heaven's sake. I just checked and I'm on 44, but I think 46 is the latest one. Anyway, I don't know if it's possible for developers to withdraw their add-ons if they wish, but if it's possible, this is one that should definitely go.
Doesn't work with FF 38
I tried to use the recent version (0.4.1.c.1) with "User Agent Switcher Addon" as mentioned in Firefox page but I'm still getting this error message!
"Error: No photos found or this album is set to private"
I'm using FF: 32.0.3
Same problem as others, it just reported that it couldn't find any photos or a firefox error.
Had to find something else, FacePaste seems to be working OK.
Do not install this add-on for it will not do ANYTHING! All you'll see is this error:
"no pictures found or is a fb-firefox internal error"
I think it at least should elaborate on what the "fb-firefox internal error" is.
I click the download link and NOTHING happens.
its not working "no pictures found or is a fb-firefox internal error"...i have tried user agent switcher bt still same :(
still doesn't work with this lasr ff release...
I'm waiting for the up-date.
Some guy found this solution to facebook new layout. Download User Agent Switcher, select Internet Explorer 8, this will cause facebook to serve old layout, then fluschipranie will be able to download albums as usual. Consult http://fluschipranie.awardspace.info/firefox/firefox.html
Used to work ok, but doesn't work with facebook's new method of displaying albums.
I'm working in the update, thank you
con l'ultimo aggiornamento di FB non funziona più, sarebbe bello che lo sviluppatore risolvesse il problema.
sto lavorando per risolvere il problema, grazzie
It seems to work. However, be aware that the images you download are not the full quality. They're the same quality as what you see on the website. If you want the original full-size high quality image, you need to click "Options", "Download" on each photo on Facebook.
Also, you should know that Facebook strips all EXIF data from the photos. That means the date the photo was taken is not included in the photo's metadata, as well as other information, such as location if the camera supports it.
Limit 1,000 pic ?
It's a great addon, thank you very much. But I keep getting this error on some albums, and after 3-4 tries, it works:
"no pictures found or it is a facebook-fireofox internal error, retry!"
I don't know if it's because of the browser or the addon, I use firefox 13.0.1.
Thank you in advance!
Holy cow, this add-on is AMAZING!! How are the download speeds so lightening fast?! Thank you so much!
Unfortunately and disappointingly this doesn't work for me. I tried it with a couple albums with 10 or so pics and it worked no problem. I tried it with a couple albums with 120-150 pics and all it did was max my memory and make everything on my computer unresponsive every time. All I could do was kill Firefox. Does this pre-download all the pics in the album before presenting the choose where to save dialog? If so I think it would be far more user friendly to present the choose where to save dialog before it does any downloading. I never ran into the 200 pics problem because I couldn't get 123 pics. I am on an older system with only 512mb ram, maybe that's a cause. Thank you for your efforts though.
Recommended. Great add-on. tried it several times on different pages and it just worked fine until i found out some FB pages with more than a thousand photos in just one album. I don't know if it's only me...but i tried the instruction on "Hack: How download facebook albums with more than 200 pictures with fluschipranie?" but it the pages in FB only change up to 2nd page or up to 400 pics...then if you click on the link for the supposed 401-600 pics, the page returns to page one which is 0-200. what am i doing wrong...is it possible for this extension to download an album with more than a thousand pics. I saw an album with 8904 pics in it and i'm planning to download it. Maybe in your future release or update...Thanks in Advance...
Yes, you are right, at the time of writing I thought all albums with more than 400 had all photos visible, but after that, I discovered I was wrong, facebook won't let you see more than 400 pictures no matter if your album is greater in size, I mean if it has more than 400 pictures, it will go from the page 1 to the 2 and vice versa, so the hack will be able only to download 400 photos.
Made an account just to review this.
AMAZING application - the only one that downloaded ALL of my tagged photos (photo grabber was only downloading a certain amount, due to privacy settings of other peoples albums or something)
This application will download all the photos that you can see.
To download all tagged photos in the new Facebook, click on 'photos', then scroll down so it completes autoloading your photos, and then scroll back up and right click the small link 'see all: photos' and download with the application
works like a charm, and super quick! 1600 photos in maybe 5 minutes
thanks so much for the app!
Thanks for taking the time to open an account to share this. And you hit the point, tagged photos should be scrolled down bottom in order for fluschipranie to fetch them all. Greets.
Using FF12 here.
Downloading albums works fine, but this extension seems to break some of facebook features: the right sidebar chat and activity feed are stuck on "loading" (this occurs only on the album pages), and what's worse, the link "see all" (to show more albums by a user in case there are more than 8) doesn't work. So it's now basically impossible to access those albums. (I tried this on a profile which had to new "timeline" look.)
I tried disabling the "hide ads" feature in the add-on options. The activity feed now displays fine, but the chat is still stuck and the "show all" link still doesn't work.
I was really please at how fine it worked to download albums, so I hope those problems will be solved soon.
Thanks for reporting those bugs. I am aware that an update is needed. I had'nt updated the addon since past year. The internet service provider in my country is dooming my endeavour, the slowest and fairest in the world. So I'm not sure when I will be able to accomplish what I have in mind regarding the development of this addon. Thanks for your review and having used this addon. Regards
This is a great extension!! Did exactly as it said it would! I had an old facebook that i no longer used and wanted to delete it but it had accumulated hundreds of pics of a several year time frame and I didn't want to lose all of those pictures. Before I found this app I was having to go through and save each pic to my comp one by one. I wasn't even close to done. I finally found this and was able to save the 4 albums in less than 5 minutes! Was a little hard to understand the directions but once I did it was great. The key is when you right click on the blue highlighted album name and the box pops up asking for pre fix just check the box and leave blank. Then pick the folder you want to save it to when your windows explorer box opens, wait a a few minutes then check chosen folder and pics will be there! I'm running an acer laptop windows vista mozilla firefox browser! Thanks so much for this awesome app! You just saved me a lot of time and aggrevation!
I'm glad it worked fine. Thanks for your very rewarding review.
I was really hoping this would work because I need something to download full size images from Facebook. But it doesn't. It takes way too much time to start and all it does it crashes Firefox every single time.
It was time ago I updated it, sorry for the inconvinience but right now I am looking for a job to avoid starving, I will resume fluschipranie hopefully soon thereafter
Trying to download album that has Chinese chars.
Error: invalid characters.
Sorry, it will not let you use prefixes being not ascii(latin alphabet) by the moment, I will fix that in the next version.
I downloaded Firefox specifically to be able to use this add-on for Facebook. It works just great for the most part, except when I try to change the settings to download large pictures it doesn't work. I click Fluschipranie on an album, but nothing happens. Other than that, it works just fine.
Indeed it is a bug, thanks for reporting it, I've just fixed it and created another version 0.1.4.c
When either opening your webpage to install your provider with the link is either down or not working properly...Can't install either way and yes i get the corruption error but the steps do not solve the problem
Yes, the provider is redirecting erronously, you can try this: right click over the link, select save target as, once the file is downloaded press cntrl + o, open the file previously downloaded(fluschipranie.xpi) and it will install automatically.
