- by justanotheruser, 6 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 6 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 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 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! :)
