Facebook Photo Album Downloader





FacePAD is a Firefox extension that 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.


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.

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
