Awesome addon! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Clean Links is one of my favorite "set it and forget it" extensions. I turn off some of the flashier features like link highlighting, and mostly it works hard to speed up my browsing and improve privacy. Especially nice on high-lag connections like satellite or slower mobile.

One bit of feedback: I had to add "|searchbyimage|SetOSID|webchat/load|static/proxy.html" to the default exclude list to get Google Image search-by-image working, GMail to log in without a redirect error, and Google Chat to work. (FF v50.0.2, CL v2.7.1-signed.1-signed).

Thanks Diego for all your hard work! Truly one of the great extensions.

update? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

last updated in feb'15. isn't it a good time to take a look at 'to-do' list?

One of the best link cleaners, could use update Rated 4 out of 5 stars

For the most part, this add-on does a good job of cleaning links and has a good set of options.

But there are some problems which are causing problems. For example, a hash sign (#) is getting appended to some links that are cleaned.

I've tried to determine if this is due to incompatibility with other add-ons--even disabling all add-ons--but I haven't been able to reproduce any consistent results.

However, I have been able to reproduce this behavior for all Google search results links when JavaScript is disabled.

Last, two requests:

1. Is there any way you can update the version of this add-on available on AMO or update the GitHub Exension Installer to work with GitHub?

2. Is there any way you can convert the "Skip Domains" configuration to a TextArea, i.e. one domain per line? This would make things easier to use for those of us that have a ton of whitelisted domains.

Thanks

Must have addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Better than sk­¡predirect.
This addon works with blocked domains (hosts).

To "Get A Trip" Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's best used for porn or download sites.

Question ?? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Can anyone tell me the exact reason to use Clean Links? In other words what is the best application for it? The benefits?

Enough of you rated this 5 stars so surely you can answer this...would be very grateful...thanks in advance.

Mouse gestures Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This add-on is great in terms of configurability (regex), but for me it lacks one crucial feature: working with links opened via mouse gestures (e.g. right-click dragging). I often need to open links in a new tab, and mouse gesture is way more convenient than pressing Shift+Ctrl key while clicking. I really hope the developer will support mouse gestures (e.g. FireGestures) in a future release.

Another issue is that even if I configured Google to open search results in new tabs, Clean Links doesn't see that, and always opens links in place.

Finally, a weird bug I just found: on Firefox 45, if I remove the toolbar button, after the browser restarts, Clean Links will be disabled. You can re-enable it by restoring the button. It seems that the button must always show in the toolbar in order for it to stay enabled after Firefox restarts.

But this add-on is truly useful and has great potential. Thank you Diego.

Nevermind, ignore the last review Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I got it working again somehow. Still wish it would strip the affiliate amazon links that are shortened. :( I really hate Buzzfeed making money off of anything I do online.... Other than that, great addon.

Nightly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Could you add Electrolysis compatibility to your really awesome Firefox addon ? Electrolysis seems to go into the next major FF release and thus a huge bunch of addons must use a new API in order to continue to work.

Please fix CleanLinks and Tab Utilities Fixed + Tab Mix Plus issue Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Whenever I use Tab Utilities Fixed or Tab Mix Plus with Clean Links when having Tree Style Tabs links won't open in a new tree tab. :(

Without Tab Utilities Fixed or Tab Mix Plus Clean Links works great with Tree Style Tabs alone.

Nice plugin but has its own mind for working Rated 4 out of 5 stars

When it works, it works very good.
What is happening to me is that after some time it stops to work without any notice and FF restart is required.
After restart it works again, until it stops again.

Does not work in FF 46.0.x + (e10s) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great addon and fantastic work from the developer, unfortunately 46.0.x + broke its functionality due to e10s https://wiki.mozilla.org/Electrolysis.

Working perfectly but how about little extension? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Your addon is working as advertised! But how about little extension? Make it work for selected links as well. Not just one copy link? Or at least to intercept other addons "copy selected links" and fix their paths?

What do you mean by "little extension"?

Enabling the "http observer" option you can make CleanLinks intercept pretty much every link loaded by the browser, if that's what you want - you may find you would need to whitelist several sites, though.

转换文本链接并不起作用 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Working nicely Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Looking forward to future developments of this great addon.

great addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

真心好用,显著加速了外链跳转速度!!!感谢!!!

good but.. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

it was a good addon until firefox disabled it, claiming it's not signed. no way to contact developer about bugs.

I'm right here, and issues are usually reported in the Github bug-tracker: https://github.com/diegocr/CleanLinks/issues :-)

As you can see there, nobody reported it for CleanLinks, but I indeed got it for another addon, check https://github.com/diegocr/PersonasShuffler/issues/1

I.e: re-install the extension :-/

Very good Addon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The Addon works very well.
A lot of good consideration and options are integrated.

Some suggestions:
- URL-Bar colour customization resp. use the colour of Link highlighting
- A FAQ with the expression "syntax" would be useful
- use a text area instead of a text field
- entry in the right click menu [open as unclean link]
(- a little more attention to the design of the panel ;) but to be fair, I no need the panel XD )

:::::: edit :::::::
I think, for the less experienced user and to make the addon more user-friendly, you could give the button/panel more functionality e.g. :
- access to the options
- similar to the "element hiding picker" in Adblocker, it would be great to have an "element link picker".
You choose the part of the Link you want to add to the whitelist scheme or in the section remove from links and the picker add it with the correct syntax in the settings.
