Hi guys,

does anyone know how to download images in Firefox by selection and without to load the imagelink directly / choose save image / manually?Lets say I am on forum where are 10 images are attached (intern or extern links) and now I just wanna download them at once (No thumbnails).I tried to use the Firefox option SiteInformations/Media tab where I get listed all media links with preview but also here its just possible to get the thumbs only.I also tested now some FF AddOns but they also dont work to download the image from the source (only thumbs too).Do you know any method in browser or AddOn what can do this to prevent the manually way?

Since cookies, HTTP headers like browser or source site, along with even HTTP posts or other things could potentially be used, and even the filename can be difficult to ascertain if you want a nice consistent original one, this is not really something easy for a universal solution.  A plugin which has a right click menu option sounds pretty good here.  Or just classic wget with mirroring the site for a certain depth using certain file extensions or other heuristics to decide if this in fact an image or not (HTTP headers, file headers, etc).  It is amazing that these types of things lack any elegant and clear universal solutions still.  Often due to the nature of the web, a series of actions may need to be performed from a login, to clicking buttons or what have you, then finally a download.  I have tried to write a full comprehensive web scripting and file mirroring tool which would try to automatically do things like check for new software releases on original websites by navigating from the front page.  But its a pretty large task full of nuances of the web evolution.

Hi,

I just wonder why are there some AddOns who saying to download images / batch etc but they can not do it and just grabbing thumbnails.I do remember that I did tried earlier AddOns like ImageHost Grabber (with some older Firefox) but this worked with RegEx paramters to customize what to do for each single Site and Imagehosts.Dont remember the RegEx commands anymore.Also dont wanna check that out anymore (too lazy for this now).Seems that there isnt any simple method to automize any select & download thing without to do that steps manually. 😕

Most addons / grabbers just search html for image tags...

<img src="Image.jpg">

But this image might be full or might be thumbnail

a better search would be for standalone image tags or image tags in href tags...

<a href="FullImage.jpg" ><img src="Thumbnail.jpg"></a>

i think the regex solution would work for you so you can setup your own regex to only grab full and ignore the thumbnails

Hi again,

the AddOn save/download-all-images I tried already but also fails and does show only Thumbnail images to download in the gallery.Maybe also not working for embedded images going to any extern image host like imagetwist.Seems I have to handle it manually in such cases or looking for any GM script with specific image host XY RegEx commands etc or using any other Windows apps like Bulk Image Downloader or something like that. :(

Hi,

thanks for this info but I think this AddOn will be not working for my tasks (same like the other AddOns too) to grab files from extern sources.

I see that this must be handled extra (using RegEx for example) to build download links like for imagetwist and others.Only tool I found what can do this is the ImageHost Grabber who has tons of hosts inside a host file with specific RegEx paramters and this AddOn works to get the real images (no thumbs).At the moment I am using latest Pale Moon browser with this AddOn just as alternativ next to my normal FF Q.

Its really bad always to switch to browser XY to use some functions or desired AddOns other browsers dont have or do not support anymore instead using only one browser.
