I'm using the latest Firefox v.3.0.7 and just installed SmuggLr. Trying to transfer over individual folders from Flickr, some work, some don't.
The ones that don't work are the folders that seem to have more than 50 images in them but none of my folders have more than 250 images so they are not huge.
It freezes on the line where it says "processing images". If the folder has 60 images it will work across until it gets to image 59 then it locks up.
No problems on the smaller folders...
Any help would be appreciated...
I'm assuming the developer is AFK on this one. I have been waiting on an update for awhile. I have a ton of photos in Picasa I want to move, but it only exports 1600px images, not the originals.
Anyone around know the status of Smugglr? or any other alternatives for a picasa migration?
Sorry, I have been in the US, then on holidays for two weeks.
If people are having issues with Firefox, can you please tell me which version you are using ? Firefox 3.1 beta perhaps ?

The freeze on large albums is happening with the current production version of Firefox (3.0.8).
One thing that I noticed is that it opens an enormous amount of TCP sockets, that's probably what's causing the problem. It was enough sockets to completely overload my network connection and require me to kill the SmuggLr process before I could do anything else. Opening hundreds of simultaneous threads is not a good idea, the program should attempt to complete multiple actions on a single connection, instead.
It's not an add-on conflict, the same behavior occurs on a clean Firefox profile with no other add-ons. I'm not on dialup, either, I have a high-speed cable connection that normally handles whatever I can throw at it. When the massive number of sockets are open, the actiivty lights on my cable modem/router don't blink, meaning it's opening more sockets than Windows can handle.
To reduce the number of concurrent threads, in the address bar type about:config, then in the filter box type smugglr. Then depending on the service you are transfering from, double-click the record and reduce the number.

It was set to ten. I'll try one. (It had more than 10 open before, I think, though, I'll try monitoring with TCPView).
Site's in read-only mode now...Maintenance issue? I'll try again later.
I assume you are using flickr...unfortunately because of the way their api is structured (and depending on the options you select), I have to make up to 3 http requests per image to retrieve all the information I need...
So including actually uploading the image to SmugMug, that's up to 4 http requests per photo...I agree that it is kinda excessive but flickr don't provide a way afaik to retrieve all the info I need in one request.
Unfortunately I'm having same problem. Tried modifying the threads setting, but doesn't help.
Any flickr album over 50 pics (most of my albums unfortunately!) simply don't work.
I'm using FF 3.0.8 on Ubuntu Intrepid.
Oh, also tried turning off the location option, no help there either.
Cool app though. Wish it worked for me.
* the transfer completes OK, without error messages. but i find odd images missing from my sets here and there. no way of telling which images these are, without painstakingly going through nearly 50 galleries and comparing them with their corresponding flickr sets
...I imagine if I run smugglr again, I will get the same results and twice the photos...
SmuggLr 2.9 could not be installed because it is not compatible with Firefox 3.5.
This is the message I get every time I try to install it.
Smugbrowser install just fine.
I don't find any later versions.
I tried that - that is version 2.8 and I get the same message.
Looking for some help. I just upgraded from the trial to pay version of SmugMug and want to get all my photos off Flickr. I've tried several times to get all my albums transferred with Smugglr but everytime the tool "hangs" on creating the first album on the progress bar. I've tried mupltiple times and also tried just transferring a different single album, but the same thing happens. Any ideas?
I'm having the same problem as nyc27. I get as far as the status page where it lists what it's trying to move and it never starts.
Thanks for the heads up, I've transferred nyc27's files...seemed to work fine for me.
I'm going to add some logging to see if i can work out where it's failing, I'll give you a heads up when I'm done.
Well, I'm not sure how nyc27 was doing it, but I was trying to use it in Firefox on Ubuntu. I ran it under Windows and it worked just fine. I wish I knew more about firefox plugins, but my guess was that it has something to do with linux.
