Image from store Photobucket Hotlink Fix
Description from store Extension to fix the hotlinking issue in Photobucket, It's not needed to pay anything with this extension, all the images will continue loading without any p500 image. If it's not working for you, clear cache or do a full refresh of the page. The extension doesn't access to your data on the websites, neither to the users nor passwords. It needs the permissions to access the urls to detect photobucket links and fix the request to keep the images working as before.

  • (2021-02-06) Radiant Ansel: This extension allowed me to get some scans of a very old book that doesn't seem to sold nor be available online anywhere else! It's an incredible life saver and one I totally recommend!
  • (2020-12-21) Flamsterette: Does not work as of December 2020.
  • (2020-03-10) chloe: Was on a forum page with lots of blurry and watermarked photobucket pictures, installed this, refreshed that tab, and all better!! 10/10
  • (2019-12-17) Jonatan Staaf: I have no idea how this manages to remove the Photobucket watermark and blurriness from the photos, but it does. It is simply an amazing extension.
  • (2019-11-24) Riley Di Gennaro: Holy cow! I have been so fed up with not being able to see pictures in old, but still very helpful forum posts. This allows me to see see everything again!
  • (2019-11-22) Victoria Sheffield (onotomatopea): only works when opening images in new tabs - actually hides images completely on pages themselves. so while it technically works, it's pretty much useless in practice.
  • (2019-10-31) J M: Beautiful, Thank you so much
  • (2019-10-31) Eric Vaitl: Thanks. Worked.
  • (2019-10-25) Christian Villegas: Honestly makes fixing cars so much easier since a lot of forums link to Photobucket and it won't let you view it.
  • (2019-10-23) Maxzinus Xander (Night Fury): Well what do you know? it works! :D
  • (2019-10-17) Stan Willabe: It works great! Thank you
  • (2019-09-25) Luis Gustavo Colognese: NICEEEEEEEE!
  • (2019-09-18) Pavel Shmeliov: Thanks for making world better!
  • (2019-09-16) EJ_5150: Fixed my problem with photobucket pictures showing up blurry and out of focus! couldn't have been easier!
  • (2019-09-10) Pete M.: When needed, this extension worked well most of the time. Now that Photobucket has changed their policy, this extension is useless. It would be nice if it could be updated to remove the "watermark" they now use.
  • (2019-08-25) then perish: unfortunate that photobucket has now watermarked all photos /:
  • (2018-05-22) Erick Perez: As another user pointed out, this plugin secretly injects this user's Amazon affiliate ID into Amazon URLs. AVOID UPDATE: Offending code has been removed in the latest update. Keeping the one star rating anyways. I hope Amazon drops your account. UPDATE 2: Code still appears to be removed. Author scrubbed all accusatory comments from his Github repo. Leaving my 1 star review, just because.
  • (2018-05-16) Daniel Betgeorge: loved it. finally can see images as originally intended
  • (2018-05-11) Audi Driver: You The Man !!!
  • (2018-05-01) David: Extension tracks all website viewing history, sends it to server unencrypted. Also adds their Amazon affiliate tag to all amazon links to earn money; very shady.
  • (2018-04-28) Thats Thats GBH: Loved it, thanks man.
  • (2018-04-10) Odin Hauge Mo: It gives me error 404.
  • (2018-04-09) David C: So many old forums are filled with Photobucket images that can't be viewed. This puts an end to this problem. Thank you so much!
  • (2018-04-03) Willie D. Washington: Awesome, dude! Now I can see all of the previously blocked photobucket picture links!
  • (2018-03-20) Miguel Correia: Works great.
  • (2018-03-12) Sylvan dB: Now I see the images. Watching for the URL upload and amazon affiliate mods mentioned.
  • (2018-03-09) Dave Gouws: Stick it to p(huket)bucket
  • (2018-03-06) Doug Schaefer: Based on other comments, I'm not interested in him capturing all the URLs I visit or padding his wallet by secretly injecting his Amazon affiliate link. Removed.
  • (2018-03-01) Sean Mclean: Slowed everything down starting in January, and this douche is injecting his amazon affiliate into everything you buy. I'd have rather given him a few bucks for the extension than this kind of piracy.
  • (2018-02-24) Rosalyn Dennis: Figured out the issue, it would help if I looked at other sites to make sure. This no longer works on Dreamwidth as Dreamwidth adds a weird url before the image for some benign reason. Everywhere else it works fine. Hence my confusion thinking it was isolated to my Macbook.
  • (2018-02-10) IcelandicPsycho: Works fine, awesome to see all those old car photos again!

  • (2018-01-23, v:1.3.15) N W: Causes all of Chrome to "hang"
    Hi, Of late your Hotlink Fix extension has been slowing up Chrome. Whether the page I am trying to load has PB embedded photos or not there is a very long wait on Photobucket Hotlink Fix. I have had to disable the extension. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the extension but still not working. Latest support posts suggest a bug in the extension has been fixed but this does not seem to be the case. Please fix the Fix. It was great while it worked.
  • (2018-01-23, v:1.3.15) Mr. Scamp: Waiting on Photobucket Hotlink Fix
    It's causing the browser to not function, pages not loading, messing everything up. Task bar constantly says "Waiting on Photobucket Hotlink Fix" on all my PC's that have the hotfix, home and at my workplace. Turned off, every functions as it should.
