- Se valoró con 3 de 5por Usuario de Firefox 14944271, el hace 3 añosHow can I get the double click download working?
And how could the hover arrow be shown on images only instead in the middle of the page?
Edit: Alright, thank you very much!
Respuesta del desarrolladorpublicado el hace 3 añosYou may need to reload a page the first time after installing this addon. Double-clicking a regular image just works by itself (note that not everything that looks like a regular image on your screen will be detected as such, but the vast majority will be). The hover button also does not just show in the middle of the page in normal circumstances. but on an image. If this is your experience, you're testing it on just 1 website, and one that happens to do odd things this addon can't support with images. Please try it on other sites too before judging, or open a ticket on gitlab (or email me) and at least link me to the page so I can have a look.
- Se valoró con 3 de 5por MX, el hace 3 añosDebería de dejar descargar las imágenes de instagram, al menos en Firefox, ya que la forma de descargar las imágenes de la pagina web, no es muy complicado si se accede a la información de la pagina web.
Respuesta del desarrolladorpublicado el hace 3 añosAssuming the translation by google is correct: I won't build site-specific support into this tool. It's meant to be a generic image downloader that works well on sites with conventional HTML structures that expose images in an accessible way. Instagram is one of those sites with overly complicated, image-hiding webpage structures. I find a 2-star rating just for not working well on instagram a bit superficial since there's so much more to this addon and it works fine on most websites, but ok.
- Se valoró con 3 de 5por Usuario de Firefox 13231832, el hace 4 añosWorks. But doesn't work on shitty resources like flickr. So, in fact, it works only on sites where "save image as" available.
Respuesta del desarrolladorpublicado el hace 4 añosI'm not sure if the correlation is 100%, but you're right in that it will definitely work if "save image as" is available, and when it isn't, it'll be uncertain. I think there used to be code that looked for images more agressively so it would work more often, but then it started making virtually everything downloadable (page backgrounds, buttons, etc), which was horribly annoying too. 10/10 very fair review. :)
- Se valoró con 3 de 5por Remy.H, el hace 5 añosUnfortunately the project seem to be dead. Developer not updating and not looking at project page anymore :( I wish someone would take it and continue the work!
A resurrection after few months is very nice even if it is the result of a bad rating!
Respuesta del desarrolladorpublicado el hace 5 añosThis addons works just fine and has the most important things it needs (and then some - I already find it too bloated compared to my original vision for it). I don't think it's fair of you to rate the addon itself lowly just because I don't implement all the non-essential extra fluff people open up request tickets on gitlab for. Ratings are supposed to indicate/be based on the quality of the addon as it is right now, not be used as a knife to put pressure on devs to add extra features you want. If it works fine for its intended use and has some extra bells and whistles, you can't justify 1 star.
- Se valoró con 3 de 5por ziess, el hace 5 añosProbably has some potential, but does not work on all sites. Take for example any album from www.muziekweb.nl : the hover button simply does not appear (both for thumbnails and full-size covers). One can use https://www.muziekweb.nl/Link/KJX0815/Iran-les-ma%C3%AEtres-de-la-musique-traditionnelle-vol-1 as a test.
Please stop blaming web-sites for deficiencies of your add-on. Those images are available through direct URLs and the web-site does not prevent you from downloading them. And yes, modern web-sites are dynamic and display content in various ways. This is reality.
Respuesta del desarrolladorpublicado el hace 5 añosUnfortunately not all websites are the same, and some use all kinds of layout tricks that prevent addons like this from realistically working, or even specifically protect their images from copying tools. I feel like you're trying to paint this as a shortcoming or flaw, but that's a little unfair. Webdevs will always find ways to hinder tools like this, on.purpose or coincidentally. There is no addon that works perfectly for all.
Update: yes, of course any visible image is by definition available to download, the problem is with websites doing all kinds of weird-ass shit to satisfy their sometimes arbitrary layout decisions and completely violating web standards in the process, or just using complicated css nonsense that can completely throw tools like this off-track. My addon is able to work through most of those things, but you can't expect 1 generic little piece of code to be able to perfectly circumvent everything a human dev can come up with that makes its life harder. Write an algorithm yourself and submit it in a PR, Mr. Perfect, or be satisfied that it works 99% of the time.
- Se valoró con 3 de 5por Usuario de Firefox 13362676, el hace 6 añosYa, The add-on itself is awesome, i was able to do so much with the older version.
Then it got updated...and everything just fucked up. I can't even choose my destination folder of where i want to put my images....like...wow, What Happened?
*In Response to the Developer Marnes*
I'm sorry if you think i was blaming you somehow, it was not my intention to make it seem like that, just wanted a simple answer.
Anyway, i found a solution to my problem anyway. All i had to do was uninstall this version, and roll back the previous version, Now everything works fine. But thanks for everything you've done.
(FYI: no need for the insults, I most definitly don't live under a rock)
Respuesta del desarrolladorpublicado el hace 6 añosMozilla has nerfed the addon api and addons are not able to do as much anymore as in the past.
As for the custom download folder, that's an anti-feature. The browser has a downloads folder so all browser downloads will and should go to that folder. My addon can download images to a subfolder of it, but that feature is not available in firefox yet because the api is not complete yet. It will be possible to use subfolders again at some point in the future, but the browser downloads folder will always be the starting point - it's a matter of technical complexity, reliability, cross-platform operation, and sane design.
What happened? Firefox became a completely different browser under the hood, that's what happened. And a lot of power was taken from addons, a compromise that had to be made to ensure quality in future addons. Don't like it? Switch to chrome, that's what I did.
Edit: yeah, you can roll back to a previous version and switch off auto updates on a per-addon basis. I wouldn't wait too long to update though because starting with firefox 57 the older versions will simply not work anymore.
