- by pjmarengo, 20 days agoRated 5 out of 5I have no idea whether this add-on is working. When I right click on a photo and select "download photo from instagram" nothing happens. If the photos are being saved somewhere on my computer I sure can't find them. And there is no option for a destination directory, so basically useless as is.
I will update the review if I can ever actually find downloads.
UPDATE: I don't know what changed, but it's working perfectly now. The extension now allows me to choose where to save the Instagram images, and the app is working perfectly! Thank you. Changing from one star to five stars.
- by BEHA, 4 months agoRated 1 out of 5Downloaded images (JPG) cannot been opened in Photoshop (CS6) because of an error message: The operation could not be performed because of a problem interpreting the JPG data. (latest Firefox and latest AddOn)I have not tested it for Photoshop, I've been developing it on Ubuntu so I had no way to test that. Could you please open an issue on the github project with a little more detail?
- by edmarrp, 5 months agoRated 4 out of 5I have one idea: give to user the option of define the path for download the images, like this: "/home/user/download/instagram" or "/home/user/download/user-option-dir".
Thanks. Great work.
- by Firefox user 15260686, 7 months agoRated 3 out of 5Works decently, but buggy:
- At first attempt to download, have to select the plugin twice before it'll actually bring up the save dialog to download
- Doesn't remember the last location of save. Goes back to the Firefox default every time. It should remember the last save location and pre-populateHi, thanks for using the add-on! I am aware of those issues and I am going to do some bug-fixing on my add-ons soon, since these are more of a passion project type of thing.
- by Firefox user 14629992, 9 months agoRated 4 out of 5When I right-click photo and select "Download photo from Instagram" nothing happens. When I do that again, then I'm getting download dialog. I always have to do that twice. Other than that, it works great. :)Hey thanks for using this add-on! I am aware of that issue since multiple users have reported it to me, and I'm working on figuring out a proper solution. Will fix that soon hopefully!
- by Ashkan, a year agoRated 4 out of 5This useful add-on helps with saving Instagram photos from posts or stories fast and easy.
You just need to click the add-on icon on the browser's toolbar in posts' page to save photo (or first photo of sliding posts). In order to save photos form posts on your Instagram feed (or other than first photo of sliding posts), you need to click the right menu option 'Download photo from Instagram'.
I just wish the add-on would remember the 'last saved location', instead of opening the save dialogue window to the default download location every time. This would increase efficiency dramatically.
There is also a small bug, when trying to save photos from a sliding post (via right click menu option): After saving the first photo, when you slide to second photo of the slide and click 'Download photo from Instagram' from right menu again, the add-on saves the first photo again (instead of the second one). So, you need to try again and this time it saves second photo correctly.
It would be great if this add-on also supports saving video from posts the same way.
Features like saving story's videos or IG videos would also make it a unique suite.Thanks for letting me know about this and for using this add-on! I haven't been able to do much work lately on my add-ons, but I'm planning to do some bug fixing soon, stay tuned!
- by Firefox user 14510053, a year agoRated 1 out of 5Sometimes it works, and sometimes it records other images that we have not selected instead of recording the right ones. So it's random, so it's useless.
- by Firefox user 14387832, 2 years agoRated 4 out of 5Ok let me update the review, I don't know if I needed a restart but now with Firefox 64, it works with all photo in post.
Inside stories, the right click is not available but you can download the picture by clicking on the extension icon in the tool bar.
Developer responseposted 2 years agoIt isn't supposed to work with video - I've made this separate addon for that functionality: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/instagram-video-downloader/
