I virtually never hit sites affected by this, BUT, had to install it, with the good recommendation from NBC: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Legal/Infringement_Notices/NBCUniversal ---- I figured it had to be the right thing to do...
"What's the difference between this addon and MafiaaFire Redirector? This addon is actually just a rewrite of MafiaaFire Redirector 0.4b." That's all it will ever be judging from the attention the RE-writer has paid to it...
Here is what I don't understand (please explain): I get behind the ideas that you're talking about. But if it is not using an auto-updated list from some web sites, then I assume that any list that it is using is manually updated. So if I have this addon installed and it is at v1.0 and it has been at v1.0 for some time now, then how is my list getting updated? Or, if this list is somehow built in to the program, which is what I think you are saying, then (either way) how am I staying updated? I'm not saying that I'm not, nor that yours is a bad way to do it (or I would not have installed it). I am just asking to please explain to me how it is being accomplished and thank you in advance for doing so! :)
I'm really liking the fixes you've made to the addon. I must agree that a built in list is the most effective means of use. Through this, one could add their own code to redirect more sites in the future WITHOUT updates in case something happened to the addon here, it could resume somewhere else with minimal changes to the code.
Any chance of you doing this with the Chrome version as well? I'd like to have a fixed chrome version so I could use it to redirect even some unseized (but big target) domains like ThePirateBay & Demonoid directly to their IPs so no DNS is really needed, but I can still type in the normal website name.
Also, I mocked you up a quick icon/logo thingy: http://i.imgur.com/Fjkuy.png
I'm currently working on a new version of this addon, but it's not as easy as I'd hoped. I also have two other projects that uses all my time - but my summer holidays starts soon ( = more time!). When this works as I want it to work (e.g. easy editable list in GUI + No HTTP request sent) - then I can take a look at the MafiaaFire Chrome addon - if it contain "vulnerables" or if the developer is bumming of the seized domains, then I'll probably make a fork of that too :-)
I also love the icon! ptgmacman's suggestion is good, but so far I'm going with yours :D
Didn't see how to otherwise contact you... Here's a suggestion for a logo.... http://www.20jazzfunkgreats.co.uk/wordpress/2009/03/in-polar-bear-skins/ see the fire/ice fox fight towards the middle. don't know if the work is attributed though.
For unknown reasons, my first comment was removed, so I'll just try again :)
> Perhaps you can give the users an option to add/remove domains? This is also a functionality that is missing from the original plugin. Your so right! This is already on my todo-list. I just need to develop the GUI. (todo list will be added to the description soon).
>> Another example is that on the official MafiaaFire Redirector "forget" to tell that they also redirect atdhe.net to atdhenet.tv (19-04-2011) > I don't understand this, is that not right?
Let me quote the "site list" ( http://www.mafiaafire.com/site_list.php )
"This list is mantained so you know exactly what you are getting."
