- by justanotheruser, 12 days agoRated 5 out of 5A fantastic extension that makes the internet usable - especially for people who have to read images with text in them, especially when certain non-digital natives attach the thumbnail...
Unfortunately, as of 18.x, it seems to be broken with Waterfox Classic, 2021.02 64-bit. I've migrated back to 17.0 for now, but the error is such:
- Images no longer auto-redirect to embiggified images;
- When forced to look for largegigantored images, the extension returns the source image - even if the site map is only one or two clicks away!
- Nothing seems to circumvent this behaviour, or fix it. I'd be curious if other Waterfox Classic users might have encountered the issue as well.
... Seriously though, one of the most useful extensions around! Thanks a million!
Developer responseposted 12 days agoI can't actually seem to replicate the issue, sorry! I tried under Waterfox Classic 2021.02 as you mentioned, and it appears to work fine for me. Would you mind sending your settings (through the options->export button)? Contact links are available on the extension page (use whatever you're more comfortable with). Also, could you send an example link that doesn't work for you? For me, https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DlOC3mOWsAEi1ld.jpg redirects properly to https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DlOC3mOWsAEi1ld?format=jpg&name=orig .
It could be that there's a specific combination of settings that causes it to break, it wouldn't be the first time that has happened under Waterfox (due to its older JS engine).
- by Firefox user 16751724, a month agoRated 1 out of 5tried on tens of pics. it seems to always find the exact same picture i am doing the search on. i mean literally same source, same resolution.
Developer responseposted a month agoWhich websites did you try it on? For a lot of sites, it won't be able to find a larger version, because it's the largest version that the site hosts. It doesn't perform a reverse image search, it complements using one, as often reverse image search engines don't link to the largest version a website hosts (as they have no knowledge of how to do this). If, however, the site should does host a larger version and the script doesn't support it, please let me know!
Just to make sure it's not some bug however, can you check if https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DlOC3mOWsAEi1ld.jpg redirects to https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DlOC3mOWsAEi1ld.jpg?name=orig (or a similar URL)?
- by Firefox user 16671729, 2 months agoRated 4 out of 5An excellent add-on; however although it was working great yesterday, on Instagram it no longer returns max res 1440P/1440x1800 max and as of today, only returns the old max sizes of 1080P/1080x1350. Tried re-installing, clearing cache etc but the add-on appears to not be working as it was... recent FF update issue?
Developer responseposted 2 months agoHmm, according to another user it still appears to work, so it doesn't seem like the issue has to do with an Instagram update (thankfully!). Did you by any chance log out of instagram? It only works when you're logged in.
If not, can you contact me through one of the contact links in the addon's description? Matrix or discord would be ideal as it might require a bit of back and forth to find out what the issue is (but if not email/github/reddit is fine too). The reason I ask is that unfortunately there's no way to have a discussion over the firefox addons review page, so I can't really help troubleshoot the issue here.
Sorry you're having this issue, and hope we can get this fixed! :)
- by Firefox user 14239313, 2 months agoRated 5 out of 5how to create manual rule ?
I want to create rule like this :
Developer responseposted 2 months agoSorry, there's currently no way to add manual rules. This is something I'd really like to add in the future (see https://github.com/qsniyg/maxurl/issues/41), but currently there are a few technical problems with implementing this for the moment (see the linked issue for a bit more detail on why).
If you want to request a new site to be added to the script, feel free to use any of the contact links listed at the bottom of the script's description, whichever you're most comfortable with. I'm more than happy to add any new website to the script, and if I'm online, I usually add them within minutes of being notified :)
If you'd rather add it to the script yourself (note that this will require sideloading the addon), I've written a bit of a guide here: https://github.com/qsniyg/maxurl/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md#websiterule-contributions. In your case, a rule like this should work: if (domain === "subdomain.your-website.com") return src.replace(/(\/[0-9]+-)small(\.[^/.]+)(?:[?#].*)?$/, "$1original$2");
By the way, while the github issue hasn't seen much activity for a while, this does not mean it's been forgotten or ignored, the script is already getting restructured in many areas, which will facilitate the implementation of this. It's just that it is pretty a massive project (currently requires rewriting >70,000 lines of source code - much of which will be automatically handled, but even that requires a very significant amount of work).
- by Aqre, 5 months agoRated 5 out of 5Very useful for finding a larger resolution of a specific image without having to reverse google image search just to find a larger resolution. I recommended this to all of my friends and I recommend this to you.
- by Adam Nichols, 6 months agoRated 5 out of 5Superb. I've been doing this manually for years using TinEye and Google Images. This extension is so much faster and more effective.
Developer responseposted 6 months agoGlad to know it's helpful!!
I should note however that this does not replace using a reverse image search engine, but rather complements using one. It'll find larger versions stored within the website itself (either through URL patterns or API calls), which are sometimes larger than what reverse image search engines can find (unless they crawl a page that contains the original image), but if the original image uploaded on the site is smaller than what's available on another site (e.g. an image reuploaded to a blog), it won't be able find that version.
- by Firefox user 14054767, 6 months agoRated 5 out of 5A truly incredible software. Finds full size and original images that I didn't know exist, and it works on some embedded videos as well and gets me the original mp4. The options menu is highly customizable in every conceivable way. I enabled the auto replacement of photos that I open in a new tab, so all I need to do is to open a picture in a tab then watch it automatically reload and replace it with the original or full resolution version if it can find one. Brilliant!
- by Firefox user 15775202, 8 months agoRated 1 out of 5Worthless. Tried it on at least a dozen sites. Image size it found was ALWAYS the same size as the image I started with.
Developer responseposted 8 months agoDoes it work with the example image provided in the addon's description? (https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DlOC3mOWsAEi1ld.jpg , it should redirect to https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DlOC3mOWsAEi1ld.jpg?name=orig )
To be clear (as stated in the description), it doesn't perform a reverse image search, so it's not necessarily unlikely that the sites you checked didn't have a larger version available that was stored on the site itself. Since I'm not sure which sites you tested it on, I can't really give any specific help regarding the images you tested, sorry!
If however there is a larger version (for example, the link I posted above, an album cover on iTunes, non-original images on Twitter/Instagram/Flickr, etc.) and the script fails to find it, please let me know!
Since (I believe) firefox addons don't allow multiple replies, please feel free to contact me in any of the contact links listed in the addon's description (github, reddit, or discord). I'll try my best to help! :)
- by Jaden Pleasants, 10 months agoRated 3 out of 5While it does work for the most part, the extension still feels like a userscript packaged into an extension. The biggest problem I regularly have is images loading in their entirety in a new tab before reloading the tab with the correct URL, which is... less than ideal.
Developer responseposted 10 months agoThanks for letting me know! 0.13.8 should be much faster for redirects now, as it's done on the extension side, rather than the content script :) The delay isn't entirely gone, as it still needs to perform a HEAD/GET request to ensure the larger image exists, but the userscript's overhead shouldn't be relevant for redirects now.
There's still more work to be done performance-wise, but I hope to be able to address some parts of them soon (others will require a rewrite of currently >55,000 lines of code, so, they will probably come a little less soon haha). I've tracked the issue here: https://github.com/qsniyg/maxurl/issues/294
Let me know if you have any other problems :)
