- by MM, a month agoRated 4 out of 5The idea is great, but there are still bugs. The ig algorithms seem hard to beat, I think maybe more control over the collecting crawl would do the job. For me collecting always stops at random numbers below 100 images. Sometimes downloads about 300-400, somtimes stays at the unfinished collecting status forever. So for ig-collections above 500 images it is not usable right now.
- by Anytamza, 3 months agoRated 4 out of 5I liove this add-onn. But there´s a problem with the Download All (Bulk) button. I download alll but the zip file weights only 467 bytes so it means the download is empty. Please fix it ASAP
- by cmx7, 3 months agoRated 4 out of 5To the developer - This add-on is truly amazing and I really love it but with the last update the download option isn't working and though I am able to click on download I get 'failed' notification in downloads, please rectify.
- by MIM, 3 months agoRated 4 out of 5This addon stopped working on Firefox last few weeks.
Lately Firefox has issue blocking some instagram access,
like, you cannot view instagram images through [Tools> Page Info> Media] yet, it is downloadable.
this add-on still works on Chromium Browsers.
Features of this add-on:
It downloads Instagram images with original resulotion, like (1080x1350).
It downloads Instagram images preceded by the account username.
Can download full instagram account (as one compressed file, with account username).
Can download all pictures on single instagram post at once (as one compressed file with account username).
Can download easily only the pics you want from one single instagram post.
Can download instagram pics from Instagram Posts Notification Page (you don't have to go to an instagram account you follow, to download newly added posts).
- by Firefox user 14149441, 5 months agoRated 4 out of 5Really like this, works fine most of the time, but 2 things, first it doesn't works with "Reels" AND I GOT MY ACCOUNT PERMANENTLY DISABLED... so watch out for facebook bs since they don't like the "suspicious activity" this extension does. FB argues this goes against their terms and conditions, so watch out.
- by Firefox user 16555408, 7 months agoRated 4 out of 5works great, but sometimes it does not download the highest resolution possible.
the same story with this addon 480x853
and with a chrome addon its 750x1333
- by Firefox user 16542852, 7 months agoRated 4 out of 5Works well, love having a keyboard shortcut for downloading a story, but wouldn't hate having the option to bulk-download just someone's stories for that day (rather than their account) - sometimes someone will post like thirty consecutive stories, like a pseudo-livestream, and having to watch and save each individual one is grueling.
- by Firefox user 16534709, 7 months agoRated 4 out of 5Very good addon for downloading instagram content. One sidenote: everything used to work perfectly the past two months until very recently where the new update started asking for a new permission for accessing browser tabs which seems very odd and and unnecessary for privacy reasons - this wasn't needed for months until now. I declined this new permission but ever since I got the notification for it downloading certain video posts stopped working (Windows 10, addon version 3.4.1)
Developer responseposted 7 months agoThe video bug is fixed in v 4.0.0
I need the tabs permission to send notifications about the progress bulk download process to the pages. If you have concerns about the privacy you can take a look at the homepage of the addon and read the source code as many other people have done.
I am very privacy conscious person and understand your concerns. But I would never sell user data to make profit.
- by Firefox user 16505008, 8 months agoRated 4 out of 5I loved this add-on and have used it for some time but it seems your downloader has all the sudden (well I noticed it this past Friday) that when downloading photos from someone's story it doesn't download the whole photo. It only downloads a centered, squared version of it, (the tops and bottom are cut off) not the full rectangular, slim photo that was uploaded. The videos are not a problem though. Is this problem with your add-on or is this something that changed in Instagram?
Either way this needs to be adjusted as it makes your add-on not function properly
Okay, so I don't know if you've gotten to this issue yet, but I did notice some sort of update that required a permission the other day, but I am still having problems with downloading stories.
In fact I cant download stories at all!
So sad, too, as it was one of the best add-ons I've ever used. Now it seems to be on its way to the gutter.
- by Firefox user 16451459, 9 months agoRated 4 out of 5Download all button doesnt work. shows error report even though when i try to download my profile after making it public.Please make sure that you have your Privacy and Security Settings on standard.
If that is now helping please write me an E-Mail with some details so I can help you
- by Firefox user 12154843, 9 months agoRated 4 out of 5FF v82.0.2, ID v3.4.1
The extension works correctly and it's open source. The permissions seem decent.
However, there are also some flaws:
- missing options to slow down the scraping to avoid a ban (a warning to check if you're logged out would be nice too lol)
- no download status. You won't see anything at all, until the save dialog will appear after various minutes.
- no filters to avoid some files (e.g: too small images or too big videos)
- file names only have a code but no original name and date, so they're a huge mess
EDIT (in reply to the dev): well the account matters, since IG locked it due to "suspicious activity". Luckly it was just temporary, but I wonder for how many times.
And about the rest, I'm not a dev. You'll do what you can\want, but I just have to point out the current issues.This has nothing to do with your account. Instagram will only block your IP from making more requests for a few minutes. After that everything works like before.
And as for you other issues: If you want to contribute to my extension you are welcome to do so and I will merge your pull request. I unfortunately don't have the time and don't use the extension enough to make the changes you requested.
- by Beemo, 10 months agoRated 4 out of 5One of the better add-ons, good for stories and individual pictures and only one i see with bulk download, great work! Original review was 4 stars because of user error, this should be 5 stars!
- by Sarah Jade, a year agoRated 4 out of 5The only add-on I found that works with just one click - all others require you to click to enlarge the image before clicking another button to download. This one lets you do it directly from the page with all the previews, which is much more efficient.
The bulk option doesn't work on search results, which is a bummer if you're trying to download everything with your hashtag on it. Seems to work well on profiles, though.
My only other nitpick is I wish it would remember what folder I last saved in. Right now it always reverts back to the desktop.
- by limkokhole, 2 years agoRated 4 out of 5Is working, but no dialog progress and no idea of get block, not working, or still running. And lack one important feature to group multiple photos as single post and store photo description.
