Used to work ok but no longer works at all in latest versions of Firefox
I've loved this extension since 2011 or so, for sites I've subscribed to or just used for free, and it was so useful. The new FireFox (Quantim) update makes this extension useless. Developer won't answer email inquiries about when they will update. They haven't been active on Facebook or Twitter since 2013-14--same with the last update of this extension. Makes me wonder why they even have their info up for people to reach out to them. Please upgrade FoxySpider to a version that is compatible with the recent updates--Or just tell us that it won't be available anymore and pull the extension down. As for me, I'm not going to keep one particular version of FireFox for years just to use ONE extension.
Good app, but Not compatible with Firefox Quantum
Used to love this extension, but the last Firefox update has rendered it useless.
best add on for the all photos download
Get this bacl! I need it. Cannot trust Mozilla's Browsers for anything any more. I t WAS the kick axx brower of all times. I dont have TIME for them to add capablities all over gain. Gimme Netscape. Any more. This browser upgrade is a down grade. I dont use this broswer for fun I work online. Or did.. FoxySpider I cannot live without you. Can you even get back onto Fiorefox's new plastic nothing browser at all? And yeh, "Needs a whitelist rather than a blacklist".. please come back?
love foxyspider :O) but a shame firefox made last update so it not work any more :O( so how much do i need to donate to get you guys to fix foxyspider ? marry xmas and happy new year to every one.
Please update this plugin for FF Quantom. I know the FF team messed up badly. You can guess that when CEO of FF emailed us about how cool the new update will be. Granted it feels faster but AT THE EXPENSE of loosing much loved plugins including this one. It is NOT the responsibility of the developer (who works for free and wrote a plugin for your platform) to update his/her work at your request cause you NUKED the API and asking everyone to commit their time to your bad decisions. I'm going to post this review to every so called *legacy* _ahem_ahem beloved plugins which I've used hoping someone from FF team would see this.
Set types to just one audio type and it only returns images as a result. If it won't stop finding images I can only assume it's not working.
I opened an html on my pc with .mid linked directly, set it to audio files only. It finds nothing. Absolutely nothing. So links I can click on and download it can't find. I even set the depth to 5 even though they are linked to the one page. It doesn't work. I've no idea what you guys are finding.
No alternative. Standalone crawler too heawy for quick download.
Great add on, but need feature to download all files(.py, .sh etc..) as currently it only downloads web asset files
I've been using this add-on for a few days now and while it does the job on some sites it still needs more tweaking in order to reach it's full potential, but otherwise it does good on what it says. Keep up the good work on it.
This add-on works and I wouldn't call it bad, but it's not very useful (for my purposes) as-is. Several entries in the blacklist are required in order to accomplish what just a couple of whitelist entries would accomplish, and even then it is not as accurate as it could be.
I have tried to download videos but I only get pictures.
It's only slightly improved beyond the previous version in that it no longer hangs FF like the last one did during crawling operations.
Unfortunately, there's still no option for direct downloading each and every file WHILE CRAWLING for those of us who want the faster approach of using an offline viewer like irfanview.
This is so simple to implement, there's no good reason for it to not be an option. Instead, the author expended energy on color options.
I have FoxySpider running right now and it's been hanging on the download operation for the past 15 minutes w/o a single file having been downloaded. What a huge waste of time the crawling was, since I'm getting no files from it. I have a fast machine, so that isn't the problem.
In the time it's been hung up, I could have downloaded every image of interest manually two to three levels deep via DownThemAll! and viewed, deleted/sorted them in irfanview.
Loads images quickly and has loads of options and configuration settings, it's perfect for mass image/video viewing and downloading
I wish this worked, or had any support at all.
This is s decent program that works very well. It's a little rough and ready and you have to modify the settings depending on what you want to do. For instance if I want music then I have to enable it in settings first. You probably also want to modify link depth to ensure you are getting the files you want.
Files download the usual default way so it's compatible with download status bar for example.
Interface could be improved so I can just view audio / video / pictures and then just click on download all, or use checkboxes to select files I want. But otherwise it works well.
This has functionality I've not seen since IDM which cost quite a bit of money.
Great ! please Keep your Good work !
The problem is this addon is fully nuclear. Except for a blacklist and media type selection, there aren't many ways to focus in on what you want.
-The blacklist should be able to be disabled with a check box.
-A whitelist with an enable/disable option should also be available. (E.g. You only want pictures found on ImageShack or similar image host sites.)
-Restrictions should be available: Ignore images/videos/audio above/below certain dimensions or file sizes.
-And really critical but missing options: Do not spider links that aren't on the original website/URL. Ignore media that isn't on the original website/URL. Ads, google, off site links and social media links get spider without this option.
You can nearly mimic this, but it is bare bones. This should be found under the preferences tabs.
Otherwise, I find this to be useful.
Edit: Oh yeah, and the 'Download files' button is still broken for me in v1.5.6.
Absurdly, laughably, inexcusably SLOOOOW! Must B written in JavaKrap, 'cuz U can save a page WAAAAY faster & just look in the 'files' folder generated 2 get the items U want, or freeware like 'WinHTTrack' 2 spider sites. Oh sure, if U have an 8 core CPU & 16GB of RAM U may B able 2 spider a small web site with say, 100 pages of images or whatever. Or U can use ANY 'garbage' machine & WinHTTrack (or payware like Teleport Pro or something) 2 get the content. This thing is just an IDEA, not a PRODUCT. It has INSANE CPU hogging junk also like 'fade in effect' (WTF?!?!) & silly rounded borders on all the images, + tries 2 resize them all. Don't waste your time. Should B able 2 generate a LIST of files, with check boxes & 'select all' type options. This thing is barely able 2 spider ONE fairly long page, let alone an entire WEB SITE!! If U R going 2 produce something this slow & buggy, please don't waste your time until U fix it, because all U do is waste OUR time by pretending it will work. It even hung on a 3GHZ machine W/2GB of RAM just trying 2 display the thumbs 4 1 page of images! That is ABSURD! The same page displays INSTANTLY when NOT doing so through this addon. Can click 'save page as' & DONE. This addon is GARBAGE!
[UPDATE (10/1/14): Looks like they fixed the download problem. Haven't fully tested all media. Have only done pictures, but looks like the glitch is resolved. Still one of the easiest ways to scrape a web page/website for content.]
This extension is simple, sleek and relatively powerful for spidering sites for pictures, vids, files, etc.
HOWEVER, it stopped downloading files earlier this year when the Firefox browser was updated. As of today the problem still hasn't been fixed. The extension "half works" -- it will spider a page and show you all the related pictures, etc., but when you go to download the files (regardless of how they're selected), it will give you the dialog box to choose where to save them and then......nothing. No download / no save. Zero happens.
I will gladly contribute to further development, but not until it is working again.
Check out 1.5.6.
Very good extension.
only after updating FF to 31 foxy wont download anymore.
I hope this will be fixed.
