KNOWN ISSUE: There was a recent change on IG that caused some video download functionality to break, and I haven't yet been able to find a workaround for it. I apologize for the issue, and will update things once I'm able to find a workaround.

Note from the Developer: If you find something is not working, please use the "Support" option to let me know before leaving a negative review.

As you can tell from the release notes below, the websites this extension works on change their structure in a way that breaks this extension's functionality periodically. I have no affiliation with them, so don't know when those changes are going to happen until they get released to my account and I happen to run into the situation myself, then need to find free time to implement and release a change. Letting me know that something is not working using the Support option helps expedite that process.

Summary: This extension is the only way to immediately save any image from Instagram or Flickr with a single right-click context menu click!

Images from the main feed, a post or photo's page, or a user's overview or favorites page will save directly to your browser's default download location when you click on the option this extension adds to the right-click context menu.
