Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Please update this Add-on because it works beautifully when fully functional.

Unfortunately, downloading images via drag and drop hasn't worked since Firefox v.17. DragtIt extension is a viable if less simple alternative if you use a more up-to-date version of Firefox.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Following this report: <https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/quickdrag/reviews/344023/>, I checked the code and found a fantastic comment:

//Advertising is disabled for a one week period if that period has elapsed reset the marketing setting

And indeed the code does just that.

The option is also not documented at all, so no user can make an educated choice about whether to enable it or not. Nobody can know if or what data is sent, why, and to whom without looking at the code or network traffic. Without digging too much, I believe it modifies pages on certain sites (Yahoo and Youtube) to add undesired advertisement from iicdn.com. It also generates and stores a UUID for the user, which it only sends on first run to their server, supposedly to track how many unique users have the option enabled.

Note that as of september 2013, their website (http://www.quickdrag.com/) seems down, but looking at data from archive.org, it seems as though the server behind this domain always redirected to its Mozilla's addon page. No luck there. The author's website at <http://code.kliu.org/> provides no information either.

It's also an "opt-out" scheme (if we ignore the fact that they don't respect it for more than a week), where I believe it really should be opt-in. At the very least, users should be offered a choice before enabling the feature after installation.

In my opinion, this is a very lame tactic (it's almost malware at this point), and Mozilla should take ten minutes to review the code, and either force the developers to make changes or simply ban the add-on. It's a very small extension (albeit very useful), so I wouldn't worry too much: somebody will reimplement it better.

A 'could not live without' extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The first extension I get whenever I install Firefox. Other link dragging extension are over complicated (but good if you need the extra functionality, which I don't). This one does just what you need, simply and effectively. I hope it never stops working, because I don't know how I'll live without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Intuitive, yet simple, this add-on allows the user much flexibility without over-complicating the process of drag and drop.

this add on?.....BRILLIANT Rated 5 out of 5 stars

No hesitation....5 stars. tiny footprint. does what it says it does. works Perfectly Every time. SAVES screwing around with right click crap etc etc. Just 'blue' the word phrase etc ....then left click on it and give a slight upward flick to it.....and hey presto it opens search for that item in a new tab. How good can life get?......i would go seriously whacko without this !!So....i can cover a page or two and just highlight what i need to know more about...flick em all up and i have searches running for me in an instant.WELL DONE.

Drag & Save Image Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Drag & Save Image option works with Waterfox 16.0 and don't use Auto Update.

目前用起來很好用。搜尋的話:第一個動作先選取文字反白,第二個動作拖拉就會另開分頁。要連結另開的話,直接拖拉連結就好,減少了很多誤按的狀況~贊!終於更新了~等很久了!

Well, works fine but, drag and save image option doesnt works anymore, actually the only way I found to save imgs faster is with FireGetures, I can easily save by using a key like D+R+D

Must-Have Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this add, and just want to THANK a developer!

Working well Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works in Pale Moon Version: 19.0.2

A Possible Alternative Rated 3 out of 5 stars

As many have stated, the image drag feature doesn't work in FF18 and beyond. I recently installed an alternative add-on called "Quick Drag 4 img" and so far it seems to be working fine in FF19. No config was required. Hopefully I don't discover any negatives but so far so good.

no longer works Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I USED to love this. But now the drag image feature doesn't work in FF18. I see from other comments going back a long time that others are having the same problem.

The maker seems to have no interest in fixing it. This version was written 10 FF versions ago! They haven't updated it since October 2011.

I do NOT now recommend this. I mean, how can I when it doesn't function like it is SUPPOSED to.

I used to be one of the most important add ons to FF. Now it's useless.

Don't bother.
