FacePAD: Facebook Photo Album Downloader v0.5.4 Released!

Diana and I (pictured here) have finished putting tohether v0.5.4. We’ve completely revamped the code, and simultaneously beefed up our JavaScript skills. This update should be completely compatible with Mozilla’s standards. I’ll post another update once I find out if our extension was moved from the sandbox to Mozilla’s public downloading domain. I’d also like to give a special shout out to shadoefax, ake79, and brody from Mozilla Forums for all of their assistance, especially ake79.

The release info for 0.5.4 is below. FacePAD is now available for download from lazyrussian.com & mozilla.com.

General Information
FacePAD, better known as the Facebook Photo Album Downloader will allow you to download your friends’ facebook albums, en masse, with the click of a button. This extension was originally developed by Nic Holliday. I took the liberty of updating this extension for Firefox 3 since he didn’t. In the process, I’ve revamped his code and made it compliant with Mozilla’s standards & Facebook’s new interface. As of v0.5.4, this project is now shared between myself and Diana Jaunzeikare.

Functionality
To download photos from the an album, right-click (with your mouse) on the name/link of a facebook album and click the Download Album with FacePAD option. If you did this properly, a JavaScript pop-up will appear telling you to wait a moment while it initiates the download process. Press OK and the photos will be downloaded to Firefox’s default download directory. If their are more than one page of photos, then more than one JavaScript pop-up will appear (one for each page, where 1 page = 20 photos). Example of alerts below image.

Example: 55 Photos
Alert 1: Downloading 20 Photos from page 1
Alert 2: Downloading 20 Photos from page 2
Alert 3: Downloading 15 Photos from page 3

Download
