Having trouble downloading an image from the browser? With the Firefox Behind add-on! you can download any image that resists you.
The Behind! is a new add-on for what is designed as a solution. Allows you to view and then download any image behind your censorship, even on sites that try to block this feature.
All you have to do is install the extension in your browser, and then just right-click on the image you want and select Behind! from the menu. The extension opens a new tab and loads the selected image into that tab.
Additionally, the extension may display multiple versions of the image. This is because the site also uses many versions, e.g. one in lower resolution that appears on the page and one in higher resolution that appears when linked.
You can view the images and use the built-in function to enlarge or save the content. To save one of the images, right-click on the image and select "save image as" from the context menu.
The developer of the extension lists some cases where the extension can help users. May reveal:
- Background images
- Images under nonsense (eg clickable surfaces designed to hide the image from you)
- Built-in images / pieces with base64 encoding
- Alternative analyzes
- Vector images (even when inclined)
- DOM shadow images
The extension worked well on all tried and tested sites and is a great extension for Firefox users who sometimes come across sites that prevent them from displaying or downloading images.
