Getting around a hanging problem

There are some file reading/writing problems with FireFox.

So sometimes it's just showing a waiting icon without showing any pictures.

Not really knowing the cause now, but you can avoid this by Right click FoxSaver icon=>Options...=>Choose Photos=>"Browse cache directory", and remove all files there.

Sorry! Lost some data!

Dear users, Very sorry!
When doing some maintenance, one folder was accidentally deleted. So all your icons, and club's icons, are gone.

Poor us didn't request backup service from the hosting company. So the icons are permanently deleted.

Very sorry for the inconvenience. But all you need to do now is to upload your icons again.

FoxSaver released!

Thanks for all of the comments and suggestions! We have been working on the website and improving FoxSaver. We may have forgotten to answer several comments, but we believe we listened and have fixed most of bugs.

We actually added a new feature: Search with a picture! OK, it's not really search via a picture, but search alongside a picture. We will show a picture from FoxSaver sources( be it from FoxSaver website, RSS feed, or your local disk pictures ) in the empty space left by Google's search page!

Let us know if you want any feature, or want any bugs fixed!

Remember to share your pictures! We like pictures that's generally nice, no manga, porn, personal stuff for now.

For now, pictures from first-time recommenders will be reviewed to get listed. If you are a good recommender, you will get your pictures automatically listed later.

Also, please let us know whether you like the Facebook account requirement. We use it to minimize spams, and encourage real users. We may setup a true FoxSaver user account system later, depending on feedbacks from you!

FoxSaver 2.1 Released!

FoxSaver 2.1 is released!

This is should be the best and cleanest code ever produced.

One major improvement is that we have tested many Media RSS feeds on sources other than flickr. So if you want to add some RSS feeds that doesn't work, please let us know!

Another major improvement is that we should haven avoided all future extension conflicts. We used some public library, and found it's conflicting with other extensions. Previously we didn't really know what went wrong, until one user, Aly, who clearly identified one extension. And we got into the extension's source code, found the conflicting library. We have put a namespace for all of our source code. So the problem should be gone. If it ever happens, please do let us know!

And please blog about us! We are thinking about "User Recommended Pictures". If you want to be the first several users, please blog about us and send us your blog to "foxsaver at". We will send you the registration link when the website is ready!

If you like FoxSaver, or hate it, please let us know! We want to improve it!
