Version 2.4 21.9 KB Works with Firefox for Android 10.0a1 - 26.*, Firefox 8.0 and later, Mobile 10.0a1 and later, SeaMonkey 2.3 and later

✔ Implemented HTTP Observer to catch 3xx redirections. For example, this should make possible to clear links hidden behind shortened URLs. This option is turned off by default, to use it enable "Redirect Watcher"

✔ Added option to skip links by their domain. By default the following domains are configured:

- accounts.google.com
- docs.google.com
- translate.google.com
- login.live.com
- plus.google.com
- www.facebook.com
- twitter.com
- static.ak.facebook.com
- www.linkedin.com

So, links such as "http://twitter.com/foo=http://nested.com" will be ignored.

✔ Fixed CTRL+Click handling and memory leak introduced in the last version (Ie, a compartment was keep resident when disabling/uninstalling the add-on)

✔ While previously the add-on just worked over HTTP and FTP links, this version should now work over any standard protocol as long it matches the pattern "[a-z]+:/"

✔ The empty hash-tag should no longer be added while on Event Delegation mode.

✔ The location/url-bar should no longer blink unless "Highlight Cleaned Links" option is turned on.

✔ "Remove From Links" pattern is now case-insensitive.

✔ window.open() calls are now intercepted and the link cleaned.

✔ Added cmd_copyLink's controller wrapper to clear links before they are copied to the clipboard using context-menu's "Copy Link Location" - Under Firefox for Android this should work over any of the items on the context-menu which involves handling links (ie, Copy Link, Open in NewTab, Bookmark, etc)

✔ Fixed issue with the toolbar button disappearing on browser updates.

✔ The patterns used on previous versions has been changed due the "Skip Domains" addition, thus the settings will be reset with this update. So, let me remark this:

** YOUR PREVIOUS PATTERNS WILL BE RESET WITH THIS UPDATE **

Version 2.2.1 24.3 KB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.3 and later

✓ Clicked links which are cleaned will be automatically loaded rather than just changing the anchor url while on Event Delegation mode.

Version 2.1 23.6 KB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later

➜ CleanLinks 2.1 - July 13, 2012

✓ Implemented Event Delegation mode, which needs opt-in. Once enabled, rather than scanning the whole DOM document on page load it'll listen for click events instead.

✎ Pros: No load impact on websites, and thus a much better performance overall.

✎ Cons: Highlighting and the counter of fixed links will not work (also, the toolbar icon will not change when links are cleared therefore - but, the urlbar will blink when a clicked link is cleared)
