-A very happy Firefox user

- by Firefox user 13737162, 6 months agoRated 5 out of 5This addon significantly improves the quality of my life. Every time I copy a link from my URL bar, it's nice and clean, and I am not being tracked from it. Fantastic add-on that works great. Especially useful for things like right clicking and copying links from a Google search result (even though I try my damnedest never to use Google's search engine anymore, preferring sites like Duck Duck Go).

and change to:
But it did not happen with this extension installed.
Same with following URL:
Maybe I misunderstood or didnt configure correctly. idk.
edit: Dear Kevin R./developer, thank you for taking the time for this very well explanatory reply. since this issue was due to the browser itself, i changed the rating accordingly. thank you again!
Developer responseposted 5 months agoHi, thank you for your feedback. You have understood the addon correctly. Actually, these tracking elements should be removed - and they usually are. However, there are technical restrictions from Mozilla for all URLs that belong to Mozilla/Firefox such as mozilla.com. These URLs must not and cannot be modified by any addon, so ClearURLs does not work on Mozilla/Firefox websites, but this is true for all addons.
You can deactivate these restrictions if you remove the affected URLs in the "about:config" from the "extensions.webextensions.restrictedDomains" setting.

-a whitelist (as already suggested)
-the chance to clean a URL since clicking on a mail without needing to refresh the page
