There's only so much clicking I want to do in order to see 100+ pictures.

I've been browsing through a website whose pages are set up to be viewed as indexes/directories with no HTML. Many of the files listed are image files, and I'd like to be able to see them without having to click on each one individually. Is there some kind of add-on or plugin that will automatically show thumbnails of all the images on the page or am I stuck clicking on each one?

Txt to image plugin does exactly this.

Download Them All is one solution.

I like Linky, which aside from general "open all these in tabs" and "download all of these" offers an "open all image links in one tab" option.

For Firefox the Thumbs extension should work fine.

All of these are good solutions, so I marked them all as best.

I ended up using sanka's suggestion because I was primarily looking for something that would show the pictures as soon as I loaded the page and didn't require any additional clicking or action on my part and, as sanka said, txt to image does exactly that. Plus I can turn it on and off from the status bar with a single click, so bonus!

Thanks, guys!
