Let's say I'm browsing some web site's folder which includes images: For instance, there is a picture on the following address:

It's not possible to view the gallery folder (403 Forbidden) here. For a quick exploration I'll have to type 01 or 1 instead of 13, and then 2,3,4 etc. Since this is manual, mostly it's back breaking. Is there a trick or add-on for Firefox to automate this process?

Hmmm would this addon help: ? – Ivo Flipse Feb 1 '10 at 13:51
It says "Browses all linked images of a page one after another or at once". The problem is, I'm interested in the unlinked images which are inside a forbidden folder. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Feb 1 '10 at 14:07
I do have to admit that I first heard of the bookmarklets I linked below through one of the Firefox developer's jokey page on how to make make Firefox perfect for browsing ahem image galleries: my answer below linked to what I think is the original source of the bookmarklets, rather than a site some may hesitate to visit given the URL! – GAThrawn Feb 2 '10 at 0:59

I've got a Firefox bookmarklet sitting on my toolbar to do just this, no add-on needed. Bookmarklets are just a single line of Javascript that you save as a bookmark, then when clicked they run on the current page.

If you look at the Miscellaneous Bookmarklets page you should see the Increment and Decrement bookmarklets that search the current URL for a number and either add one onto it, or take one off it. I just save those two to my toolbar and give them the labels "+1" and "-1" so they take up almost no space. Sounds like it's what you're after?
