Can't install, because you have Firefox 9.0.1?:

1. Download XPI-file and rename to mafiaafire_redirector-0.9c-fx.xpi.zip
2. Open ZIP and find install.rdf
3. Change line "<em:maxversion>9.0</em:maxversion&gt:" to "<em:maxversion>9.0.1</em:maxversion>"
4. Save, rename back, drag & drop back to Firefox window

Thank you guys for making this cool AddOn and saving our freedom. :-)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9c). 

Thanks for the steps as well as the rating!

Users shouldnt have a problem installing on the latest versions of FF now, we fixed the compatibility issue (we hope!).

Cheers!

I am all about a free internet. I am all about freedom of expression, freedom of speech. I totally support this plug-in. Although I have only used it a few times, I have been impressed with it so far. Good job to the developers for the hard work that you have put into it. I am very impressed!

Thank you for the kind words!
Yep, they might use the word "piracy" but thats a red herring to go after our rights and freedoms - then slowly erode them away.

Use the extension in good health and thanks for the review!

Great plugin Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great, useful plugin. And a thank you to the DHS for bringing its existence to my awareness :)

It's good to see the DHS doing something good for once, eh?

This is an excellent add-on and I am very grateful that you guys were kind enough to create something like this. I'm in Canada, and my ISP Teksavvy is blocking Megaupload.com at the moment. I access the site to download save game files for games I bought legally, and nothing more.

You're all amazing and deserve every donation you get! Thank you for all the hard work!

GREAT JOB
How ironic that the US government demands that Moziilla removes this addon. However mozilla is resisting. :) I found this addon from an article stating this exact conflict. I thank the developers of this software for their nerve despite the recent happenings. This is an innovative and very interesting idea. Keep it up! Because of you people we still have a chance versus internet censorship.

Interesting issue with it Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It works out great.

I did come across an interesting (and probably rarely-seen) bug. I'd just moved to a new drive and none of the bookmarks had their icons as I'd not visited the sites yet.

If you're opening multiple tabs at once and they don't have their icons, MAFIAAFire Redirector prevents the other web sites from loading.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9c). 

Pretty unlikely...

Hey!
Thanks for the review!

> If you're opening multiple tabs at once and they don't have their icons, MAFIAAFire Redirector prevents the other web sites from loading.

This is pretty unlikely because there is nothing in the code that takes the icons into consideration (have a look, the code source is open and not obfuscated in any way) and right now we have even disabled the fetching of the lists remotely so its faster.

If you are having this problem, it probably is something else thats causing it... which can range to some obscure settings issue or another plugin.

Cheers!

Mozilla finally got around to doing a full review of our code so it came out of "experimental" :)
The AMO editors get a lot of addons for review so we just had to wait in line till our turn came up, they are fantastic people who get way too much to do in a short time so no complaints.

Thanks for the review and if you have any complaints or feature requests please use our support website:

Love the new features in the upgrade from 4!

This pretty much ticked away any and all concerns that I had and even many that I did not think about.

I was one of the people who was in two minds if a hard coded list was the way to go or your way, and I am glad I went you way after this upgrade.

3 thumbs up!!!

This addon downloads redirect rules from 4 UNENCRYPTED web sites, including the obscure "if*cksexygirls.com" domain. Not only those websites don't really appear to be secure, since the connection is not encrypted, anyone who can intercept your connection (open wifi, for example) can add for example a rule that makes https://www.mybank.com point to http://somephisingsite.com/phishing.php. At last, they DO track you. I found this comment in the chrome extension source: "// lets gather some internal stats on MF .com" (above the function that shows the support page after 15 redirects).

Edit: I agree with most of the points made in the reply, but users should still keep in mind that there is a risk involved with using this add-on via an untrusted connection.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7b). 

HAHAHAHA!

Yawn!
And the same FUD comes back again, at least think of something new...

As to the reason why we have if*cksexygirls.com in the list:
http://ilovemafiaafire.net/MAFIAA-forum/showthread.php?tid=19

As for SSL, we don't plan on implementing that in the near future as well because what you described is unlikely ... to the extreme and beyond.

For this to be a security problem: You need to have someone snooping on your constantly, and know you have the Redirector plugin, and know when it is updating it's list and successfully execute a "man in the middle" attack.
How many people do you know that can do that? (If many, you need to get better friends ;p )
And if they could do what you are suggesting they would "get" you with a hundred other ways that are easier.

Furthermore:

The redirector does not simply redirect without warning, before a redirect it pops up a splash screen message for a *** couple of seconds *** telling you that it is about to redirect you THEN shows you a bar telling you you have been redirected which you manually have to close. You would have to be dumber than an inanimate object to see the "You are being redirected" splash screen, then manually close the "redirect bar", and then see a totally different website than the one you were expecting... and think nothing is wrong.

Over 100,000 downloads of this (counting the direct downloads from our site, the Chrome version and here) and not a single occurrence of what you are talking about. Just because its possible someone reading this *could* get run over by a prius and then a tricycle immediately (that has a 98 year old small person with 9 fingers riding it) after does not mean they would... in fact what you suggest is as likely as that.

As for tracking, we do not do any tracking... even the Chrome version which you are referring to is an old version.
We hope you try out the newer version, who knows... you might like it and it might inspire you to come up with something original ;)

Thanks for the review :))

There is already Firefox five and mafiaafire is already not available for ff5 i hope there will be shortly.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7b). 

Support for FF5 is experimental... but try downloading it now and tell us if you run into any problems please.

Thanks!

In my last review I made a suggestion that most plugin authors would probably have disregarded as trolling.
The feature was actually added, and I've now reinstalled this plugin and worship the author as a minor deity.
While I don't currently go to any sites that are being redirected, it's a great preventative measure and I just might check these sites out now. ;-)
Thanks for defending our Constitution. 5 out of 5.

> In my last review I made a suggestion that most plugin authors would probably have disregarded as trolling.
We read all reviews and pay special attention to suggestions. We never for a second thought of it as trolling but our hands were tied as we had no idea how to do what you wanted... a little googling and... we did our best! Glad you like it! ;)

We had the initial idea on making the plugin, but we there are points we never thought of so we made this open source as well as started a support forum: www.ilovemafiaafire.net/MAFIAA-forum/ where users such as yourself can help us make this better.

...And you are most welcome!

Wily and brilliant Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The developer of this extension is fighting an incredibly important fight. The war for the Internet is just beginning and we need all the people we can get on our side. It's clever, "unreasonable" stuff like this that gums up the plans of the global corporate weenies. (Incidentally, i use the word "unreasonable" in the sense that George Bernard Shaw meant it)

Also, the developer seems to be a very funny and intelligent guy (from looking at his web site). I would love to just have a cup of coffee with you and talk about the world.

And you said something earlier in a response to a review about why the heck Americans keep electing such corrupt politicians. It's because the entire system has been corrupted by the global corporate elite. The American people have lost control of their country. Congress are the lobbying arm and financiers of the Corporatocracy, and the President is now its spokesman. Like it or not, this is on its way to every country on Earth, unless we act to stop it.

Thank you for the great review and kind words!

A small correction, we are a couple of people and not a single "developer". It was a joint partnership in making the site as well as the addons.
Everyone here said that coffee offer sounds good! Alas, it goes against the whole "anonymous developers" thingy :(

Other than that, use the addon in good health!

Cheers and hope to see you on our forums!!

I'm a little saddened that you've elected to discontinue support for older editions of Firefox. I've resisted upgrading to more recent Firefox releases due to extensive incompatibility issues with some of my favorite add-ons. Still, I applaud you for your work on this extension. It really is a useful app.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7b). 

Sorry...

Hi Jalleyo,

My apologies but it was not our intention to cut anyone out... we really had no choice.

By making the new version have a list that did not need to update on every start of the browser we needed to store the list somewhere... and the most efficient way of doing this we found was via "localStorage", and local storage is only available on 3.6 and higher.

The older version is still supported so if you downloaded 0.4b it should work pretty well.

We are not asking you to change it, but mind telling us why we got dropped a star and how we can avoid it the next time? ;)

Cheers!

This is definitely an add-on everyone should have installed. The ICE has continued to illegally seize more and more domains and this add-on is successfully rendering their actions as futile. It has helped me reach many websites which have had their domain illegally seized by ICE. I really want to thank the developers for helping maintain an open and free internet.

This is perhaps one of the greatest apps for sweeping past unconstitutional practices by which copyright trolls and government agencies attempt to censor information.

If anything this brings us closer to the realization of John Gilmour's thoughts on the matter:

"“The internet interprets censorship as damage and routes around it."

I hope to see this project continue to flourish, and if all goes well I think it would be cool to expand this to other features like redirecting from a DDoS inflicted site to a mirrored version - as I suspect this will become a tool used by various groups to shut down views they don't appreciate.

In the meantime I will be encouraging others to download it themselves as well as store the code.

Thanks!

Thanks RJ!

We came up with the idea and even offer the source code as a free download, so we are also supplying the means - we hope to see some new and wonderful things some of it!

Check out the new version, I think you will like it!
