Images won't load in one website?

Posted

Hello All.

There's a particular website I need to download some images from, but they won't show up on Firefox (or Chrome). An icon appears in place of the image(s). The website has right click disabled, so I have a plugin to enable right click so I can save the images, but I can't get the images to show. The images show up fine on mobile devices but I need to download a lot so it's not practical to use the phone.

http://opac.nl.gov.jo/adlibweb/detail.aspx?parentpriref=802000002# Site is above -- you can click next to see another example. Each page should have at least one and usually several images that you can enlarge for download.

I manually enabled images, flash, etc. using the permissions page. The website is not https certified FYI.

any ideas are much appreciated. thx.

Here is a better link with search results: http://opac.nl.gov.jo/adlibweb/detail.aspx?parentpriref=802000002

There should be images in every search result

These images have a very complicated path, for example, a thumbnail has this address:

http://opac.nl.gov.jo/adlibweb/wwwopacx/wwwopac.ashx?command=getcontent&server=images&value=http://icapture.nlgov.gover.local:81/Old_NL_archive\vol07\vol07.094\01094.039&width=200&height=200

The full-sized image has this path (larger width and height):

http://opac.nl.gov.jo/adlibweb/wwwopacx/wwwopac.ashx?command=getcontent&server=images&value=http://icapture.nlgov.gover.local:81/Old_NL_archive\vol07\vol07.094\01094.039&width=900&height=900

Question

Do you have any extensions that might look at these URLs and want to "clean" them to remove a potential tracking page, thereby breaking them?

Thank you for looking at this. Not that I am aware of. If I did, it would also be on my brother’s computer.

To be clear, I’m working only with the King Abdullah pages. If you check the box for his and search “ل” in the search box then 668 results will come up. These are the images I’m sorting through that I cant get to show up. I had some success with the other search categories.

Aha, those are TIFF images. Firefox doesn't have code to display them and wants to download them, but as embedded images, they just stop. Since right-clicking is a hassle on this site, another way to pop up download dialogs is to work through the Network Monitor. That's a tool you can open in the lower part of the tab that logs requests made by the page. As illustrated in the attached screenshot:

(1) Once you have your search results, open the Network Monitor using either:

  • "3-bar" menu button > Web Developer > Network
  • (menu bar) Tools > Web Developer > Network
  • (Windows) Ctrl+Shift+e

In the blank where it says "Filter URLs" type tif so that you only see the TIF URLs in the list.

(2) Click the broken image icon for a result to open it and/or click the icon to show the large version. It will be broken, but the request should show up in the Network Monitor list.

(3) If you do not see a new TIF request on the list, try clicking the zoom button on the overlay.

(4) To pop up the download dialog, right-click the TIF request and choose Open in New Tab. Firefox will open a new tab and display the download dialog (or if your Firefox is set to save automatically, it should save the file).

Close the blank tab when you're done with it.

Sorry, that's the best I can do at the moment.

Thank you—this was helpful. The only downside is it takes longer than it would if the images just came right up. Need to download heaps hence why I’m looking for the easiest route.

This may work in the mean time but let me know if you can think of a way to get the images to show up right away. I have an enable right click plug in so that is not an issue
