Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

What I want to achieve is:

after browsing the web page,all images on this page is downloaded to a specified directory.

Better with firefox because I'm using it.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Usually, depending on confifurations, the images are cached inside some Firefox folder. You can go there and take them. –  heltonbiker Jun 8 '12 at 14:29

Not compatible with current version of firefox. Last updated in 2008, and even then people are reporting it doesn't work. –  That Brazilian Guy Aug 31 '13 at 16:51

If you choose 'Save Page As...' in Firefox and use the option 'Web Page, complete' it will save the page html and store all external documents (css, js, and images) in a separate folder.

Not for some ajax sites,you can try save gmail. –  Shore Sep 5 '09 at 11:02
Hmm, I didn't know that. In that case you probably will need to use an extension to do it. Search on addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox or try the one suggested by Ami. –  Simon Groenewolt Sep 5 '09 at 11:34

The firefox DownThemAll! allows you to selectively filter and fetch from a page.
This includes the ability to select by file type (extension).
