Image Toolbar 0.6.5
Updated: 14/06/2008

What it does:
The Image Toolbar provides quick access to some simple image functions and is highly customisable. If you are unfamiliar with the concept used by IE's Image Toolbar, I'll explain: You hover your mouse cursor over an image and a toolbar is displayed in the top left hand corner of the image, which allows you to save the image and perform other functions.

Image Toolbar 0.6.5 for Firefox provides the following buttons:

Image

Save
You can set this to either prompt you to save or to automatically save to a previously chosen directory.

Copy
Copies the image and the image location, allowing you to paste a link or the full image into most software packages.

Print
Lets you print preview or directly print the current image.

Info
Launches a dialog detailing the image properties.

Folder
This allows you to open your designated image folder quickly or change it to another folder.

Ctrl-clicking or middle-clicking will activate each button's secondary function, for example, to switch between launching a save prompt and silently downloading to the default location.

Where you can get it:

I'm gonna send a few extensions your way within a day or two, just tidying up sloppy errors and any bugs I can find before doing so.

This is brilliant stuff, Cusser! Bwahaha. Now I shall harvest images like never before!

Hee, though I do have one request...

Could you add an option to alter behaviour so it only pops up if you're holding Control and mouseover, rather than having it happen with mouseover in every instance? So that the only time it would pop up is if you're holding the control key. Is that possible?

Just a suggestion, anyway. Keep at it, Cusser, this is a genuinely nifty addition to Firefox's extension library! Hee, anything the Old Man browser can do, Firefox can do and better. Gotta love it.

It's possible for me to build that in, but you could also set the delay to 99999999, which would achieve the same thing.

This is very true. I was unaware of how well that would work though but... <coughs> after leaving my mouse sit on an image for a few minutes, I was convinced. Sorry to have bothered you with that, you're right. That works well.

It's no problem. I think the maximum number you can enter is 1410065407, meaning that you'd have to wait 16 days before the toolbar appears. I'd think it's a fairly unlikely event. :D

Known issues:
1. Occasionally will appear in the wrong place. I'm not sure entirely how to cope with this yet, it appears to be either an error in my logic, or an error in Firefox's x and y coordinate reporting. I'll get to the bottom of this sooner or later, but it works in the majority of cases that I've tested.
2. I think frames will trip up this extension.

Planned for the future:
- Email Link / Image
- Print Preview / Print
- Next / Previous Image
- Nuke / Block

Release history:
0.1 - 12/03/2004
- Original Release


Great one Cusser! I just love it. Make my life easier now.

With your next version of IMG toolbar, Firefox will become better than IE, in image browsing...

Waiting for your next version :)

cheers!

Most excellent. I especially enjoy the ability to set a huge delay and display only with the CTRL key.

I realise you are pretty busy with this and still have a pile of things you'd like to implement, but:
1. Tooltips?
2. Middle click responds the same as CTRL + click?

Just some some suggestions. Keep at 'er.

I'll add your suggestions to the list Parkotron, they should be pretty quick to do, but I'm not doing anything else until bug#3 is worked out, that's the priority at the moment. Once I (or anyone else, hint hint) has that worked out, I'll include both your ideas for 0.2, with the rest of the stuff on my list for 0.3 and/or 0.4 most likely.

Another quick suggestion:

The CTRL overide should also overide the size settings.

I think I'll have a pref for that one, but ok.
Is anyone interested in helping out with the development? If so, please PM me. There's an huge amount left to do, and I'm not (yet) capable of doing all of it. Any help would be much appreciated.

This extension is great! I love it, good work Cusser. First i thought it would not work with download sort extention (i am using this to sort my downloads in folders by date), but your extension works great with it! I hope this feature will not be lost in a later version :) Keep up the good work.
