dude make it available for the new firefox !!! version 57+
thats verey good
Thank you, works great
Thanks, and I hope this add-on will be compatible with multi-process.
Can not stop the redirect from www.yandex.com (working) to www.yandex.com.tr (not working).
That is, of course, after adding the correct regex to NoRedirect's configuration.
I have tried every way I can think of to block this redirect and no method is working.
Can you please give some suggestions on how to block this link?
I like this addon a lot. Took a few minutes to figure out, but it works great.
A good overview of the different types of redirects can be found on Wikipedia :
NoRedirect can be used to protect against exploit kits and servers infected with malware such as cdorked, by intercepting their malicious redirects.
There are very few options, so it's hard to go wrong. Using it like a firewall in default block all mode, I removed all the default filters and added one catch all wildcard filter to intercept redirects globally from any website.
My test pattern :
When you leave all the checkbox options unchecked, this mode will give you a redirect warning with a message showing the status code or header redirect type, with a link to the redirect location that you can click on, if all is ok.
Checking the DNS error page option will give you the Firefox error page that the site can't be found. This option could be used when targeting exploit kit redirect patterns specifically. A custom error page with a brief description or NoRedirect logo would be even better, so you know it's not really an error..
Thanks Kai Liu, great work.
@davesocal - "There is no support documentation to explain the syntax of the filter expressions to use"
Mozilla has a very nice page on Regular Expressions :

Kudos to the author for fact that this add-on does stop the redirect. Unfortunately this add-on turns all my searches into a two-step process. Clicking on the search result first simply stops the link and takes you to a dead page but does reveal a clean link that you can click on in step two.
There is no support documentation to explain the syntax of the filter expressions to use. I'm a computer science student and had to guess at how to add blekko.com to the list of search redirects. I'll keep looking for an easier redirect filter to use.
tested on ff3.5. it doesnt applied
ive tried : regex : "^https?://addons.mozilla.org/.*" source=false, allow=false, dns error=false
i also tried in my apache+php server : header("Location: http://www.example.com/xxx"); /* Redirect browser */;
then noredirect regex : "^http://www.example.com/.*" source=false, allow=false, dns error=false
i tried source=true, allow=false, dns error=false
i tried source=false, allow=false, dns error=true
it never works, no notice like : https://addons.cdn.mozilla.net/user-media/previews/full/32/32198.png?modified=1331247702
oh dear ... how to make it work ? thanks
NB: why there is no option for import/export list ?
Please update your pre-provided list - one if those, namely the anti opendns.com item needs to change (its outdated URL section "guide" should be updated to the current "guidetest" otherwise NoRedirect will not prevent OpenDNS from redirecting at will
NoRedirect works exactly as described. I have been annoyed by Cox Cable DNS hijacking. Editing my Host file protected me for a while. Then somehow Cox malware dns hijacker (my opinion) http://finder.cox.net started again. Used BlockSite and it worked exceptionally well, then Cox somehow thwarted it. Now I've just installed NoRedirect. I hope NoRedirect is a lasting fix in defeating http://finder.cox.net. Now I need to find a way to protect IE. Is there a version of NoRedirect for IE? My Os is Win8. FireFox v22.0.
How to block a site e.g. https://www.bwin.com ???
I can't block this.
Powerful although useless unless you grok regex.
Unfortunately cannot get it to filter properly on Firefox 23.
you can learn a lot about regexp starting from here.
use the try it editor for quick preview of what exactly happens. its really not as hard as you may think.
note: i haven't used the addon, i'm just offering help on regexp for all the people that miss this addon. i like the said features of this addon. the idea of previewing redirection urls and using it preview any short url redirection is really great.
great addon, i block "https?://" and use it as a whitelist.
i agree with @1814, would be good if there was a status bar icon for it to easily toggle etc.
and another idea, probably something that nobody but me really wants, maybe an easier way to add the current url to the list, maybe just when encountering a redirect, it could prompt to bring up the window and make a partial entry for the current source or redirect and let the user edit it and then add it
Much better than turning off redirection at all in FF options. Now i can allow any redirects i want, while disallowing all the others. As for now it works fine (FF 18.0.1).
