- by Firefox user 14054767, 8 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, 10 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 10 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, a year 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 a year 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 :)
- by ForeFix, a year agoRated 5 out of 5Very good addon, to find and grab otherwise inaccessible HD versions of many images. In active development, and on the way to be a better alternative to Imagus and all other image-preview-on-hover extension (it can do basically the same things + upgrade to the HD/source version in the process, which is a BIG advantage).
Actually, it can already be qualified as such, it's just that I'm hindered a bit by how to popup-on-hover doesn't disappear when we leave the thumbnail beneath: we have to completely leave the HD-image preview itself, which is pretty big and thus often make our cursor go away from the field where thumbnails-to-enlarge are. It's just a problem of convenience because i'm used to how Imagus operates, nothing that can be qualified as a major problem. Currently, i'm just using "Popup position> Beside Cursor" as a semi-workaround.
The Options page could be visually improved imo; too much wasted space... It could use foldable categories, and frames to better separate them. And respecting the "dark themes" of firefox too would be awesome, or at least having a background less bright/blinding than pure white.
Edit: oh, also an entry in the context menu for blacklisting an image (being able to edit the url in the process to make glob rules would be a plus), rather than going to the options and scrolling.
These are just suggestions, your extension is awesome qsniyg! Thank you for making it, improving it so much over time, and for making it open source. You rock!
PS: when you have time, could you improve instagram support for posts that have more than 1 image/media in it? Currently, the "gallery" feature jumps to the next post when we click on an arrow, instead of going through all the images inside the post itself (when it has more than 1).

>it's just that I'm hindered a bit by how to popup-on-hover doesn't disappear when we leave the thumbnail beneath
If you set "Popup position" -> "Beside Cursor" (as you wrote), and "Close when leaving thumbnail" (which should be the default), it should work, at least it does for me on Reddit... would you mind opening a github issue (link is on the addon page) for which site you're using that doesn't work (and maybe your settings as well, if you click "Export" at the top)? I'd like to fix this if possible :)
EDIT: I think I understand what you meant now. Previously, the behavior was to close the popup if the cursor was out of both the popup, and the thumbnail. In 0.12.5, you can now customize this to be only the thumbnail if you prefer (through "Close when leaving" -> Thumbnail)
>The Options page could be visually improved imo
I completely agree, this is one of my next priorities. Even I get lost in them, so that's definitely not a good sign haha. Thanks for the suggestions on how to do it, I'll keep them in mind! (tracked here: https://github.com/qsniyg/maxurl/issues/91)
EDIT: As of 0.12.16, I've implemented the frames feature you mentioned, and it also supports splitting categories into tabs. Thanks for the idea!
>And respecting the "dark themes" of firefox too would be awesome
Good idea! I've tracked it here: https://github.com/qsniyg/maxurl/issues/189.
EDIT: It's in 0.12.3 now, if you set "Dark mode" manually in preferences. Currently for whatever reason, detecting dark mode doesn't work on my system so I can't yet add support for automatic detection.
>oh, also an entry in the context menu for blacklisting an image
I've tracked it here: https://github.com/qsniyg/maxurl/issues/127, it might take a bit longer to implement though, as a new UI would have to be made for it. But I agree, it's quite important.
>could you improve instagram support for posts that have more than 1 image/media in it
Yes, that's also something I've been thinking of working on soon. I'll try to do it in the next release if possible :) (tracked here: https://github.com/qsniyg/maxurl/issues/50).
EDIT: It's in 0.12.3, if you enable "Use albums for Instagram post thumbnails".
>Thank you for making it, improving it so much over time, and for making it open source
You're very welcome, and thanks for taking the time to write that! :)
