Imgur Album Downloader

This Firefox extension adds a download button to any Imgur album or gallery page for a quick zipped download.


This Firefox extension was abandoned after I no longer had a personal use for it. It is no longer maintained and presumed to be outdated. Since the development of the latest version, the design of the Imgur website has changed so much that it is presumed to be incompatible and no longer working.

Imgur has a download feature for image albums, but I frequently used to run into albums where it just wouldn’t work (i.e. it produced an error message instead of a download). To fix the issue, I wrote this browser add-on that first tries Imgur’s built-in download link, but if that does not work it walks through the album itself, fetches all the files and compresses them into a Zip archive which it then lets the user download. It’s a nifty little add-on that seemed to strike a niche, because it grew to just over 1000 users before it plateaued, making it by far my most popular Firefox add-on.
