How to download Facebook albums easily in Firefox is the most popular social media site that connects people and allows them to upload photos, videos and share links. It is currently the second most visited site in the world (just behind Google) and the best and number 1 social networking site worldwide. Launched in 2004, it has quickly grown through the years and has now over one billion active users around the globe with the reputation as the most used social networking service in the world.

Not easy to download albums within Facebook interface

Behind the success of Facebook, are the account holders, its own users. It is fairly easy to upload your pictures and videos in Facebook, however, it is a pain and grief to download your own photos and videos that belong to you. The old fashion way of saving photos in your computer is the Right-click > Save image as procedure. This method is time-consuming and very labor intensive. The process allows you to save only one image at a time. What if a user has albums with hundreds of photos in each album? It will take you forever to download them all! What a shame. This is something that Facebook staff, developers and programmers have to work on and improve upon. Remember that it is the users that made Facebook the best photo-sharing site so Facebook must also provide an easy way to download a group of pictures in a user's album. Because the pictures are the users' own property, Facebook must provide a convenient and easy way to download Facebook albums. Sadly, this is not the case.

Ways to download Facebook albums

There are a few methods how to download your albums from Facebook. One way is register to a site, login and then find your photos and download (Pick and Zip). Some site offers applications for photo downloading but at the same time include a toolbar coupled with numerous annoying offers (fbDownloader). Other sites allow you to create photo book and download features (Blurb). This is extra work.

Best way to download Facebook albums

Among the options mentioned above, the easiest way to download facebook albums is through your browser. There was a Firefox plugin called FacePAD which allows one-click download of Facebook albums. Unfortunately, it is now unavailable because it has been removed by the author. The good news is, there is a better and easier alternative, the facepaste Firefox addon.
