Unsure how to use this? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Just grabbed this yesterday, and have some tough questions about this addon:
A. I'm totally blind, so i have to use a screen reader full time to surf the web, let alone use a computer in the first place.
Using FireFox 12.0 Aurora in Windows XP Service Pack 3.
The screen reader i'm using is called NVDA (Non-Visual Desktop Access); can be tried by going to http://www.nvda-project.org and downloading a copy.
Most of the time, the extensions i manage to get going in FireFox work beautifully; Take the cases of NoScript, Noise, and WebVisum.
Standard dialog boxes are used where needed, and all controls (maybe 99% of them) are read perfectly.
This extension is a glaring exception to the rule.
NVDA does not read the text prompts next to the controls in the NoRedirect Options dialog;
Also, the table cells in the supplied table are not read at all (I.E., the text of the selected cell and column are not read at all; guessing it's supposed to be the highlighted NoRedirect rule i just selected.
NVDA just says "row", "row", "row" when i arrow up or down through the table entries.
B. i see at least 16 patterns of "edit", "checkbox", "checkbox" when i tap the Tab key on my keyboard to move between the different dialog box controls for this addon;
The edit boxes allow me to fill in the various entries;
I can toggle the checkboxes on or off, but I have absolutely no indication of the control's name at all.
Assuming there's various patterns i can fill in in these edit boxes and applying exceptions via the checkboxes.
One extremely handy edition to rendering text next to individual controls is to render text next to individual groups.
In this case, assuming there's 16 groups, the first pattern of "edit", "checkbox", "checkbox" I'm guessing is a default rule of some kind.
Maybe call this 'By default,'.
Then the individual checkboxes would have text next to them containing the control's name;
Huge note here; do not write 'checked' or 'unchecked' in the checkbox's name as part of the control; NVDA will indicate the condition of the checkbox as i change it.
C. No real documentation for this extension; kinda leaves me hanging, dazed, and confused…Lead Zeplin not included.

It does not work. Rated 1 out of 5 stars


I click on www.target.com link, and my ISP routes to a site owned by my ISP.

My computer hangs forever because I blocked the ISP hijacker in my Firerwal

Hi, I have a problem with Pixiv. When I try to view a bigger version of a picture (for example, http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=big&illust_id=######), the server redirects me to http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=######. That is, from big to medium size. What would be the best config so the server stops redirecting me?

push, great ADD-ONS Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Recently the web page often be redirect to china telecom's ADS. I tried to change DNS, modified the rules of firewall but it doesn't work. I really need to delete the sucker.
Today I just got this add-ons, recommended by one man who has the same problem.
Great add-ons and thanks!

Neither the default filter for dnssearch.rr.com, nor my own variations on it, ever resulted in a blocked redirection. It was a simple test case, googleeeeeee..., and NoRedirect can see and warn of the coming HTTP/Refresh, but doesn't block it. Tested in a clean profile, and inside an existing profile with this addon stack: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/collections/whatrevolution/dissent/

Same result in both tests, except that my Dissent collection is able to block the HTTP/Refresh behavior in other ways.

It's very nice Rated 5 out of 5 stars

better than Redirect Cleaner and Redirect Remover that only have a whitelist.

This plugin is fantastic for debugging redirects on a development server. It's like setting a breakpoint on every "Location:" header. No code changes required to pause/resume.

Good tool so far! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

When I visit family, I'm very annoyed to find any 404 errors suddenly leading to their ISP's (inferior) search page -- and when I was searching from the address bar, their ISP hijacked that, too, so I had to go in and change my about:config keyurl back to google -- but I like to see the 404 errors and I like to be able to "correct" them if possible -- especially if it's because the site mistyped the URL in a link, for ex., by leaving out the colon or putting the http:// part in twice -- and without having to go back to the original page to see what the error was.

My family's ISP wasn't listed, but I was able to get NoRedirect to work easily by deliberately typing in a bad URL and copying the first part of the URL. I then substituted "(?:[^/]+\.)?" for the first element of the URL, since it was obviously one of a set of servers used by Frontier (oops! did I just name the naughty ISP?), and now when I type in a bad URL, I get a nice 404 message, just like I expect. Maybe I'm just old-fashioned, but I really don't like ISP's hijacking my browser like that. *grumpy face*

NoRedirect is easy to use and configure, but I think it should come with some kind of directions. I'm pretty good at figuring this stuff out (I had no idea what PCRE was before using this extension, and still don't really know), but I'm sure that many users would be well-served by a few user-friendly instructions on how to add an ISP that is not already on the list.

Thanks for the useful tool!

UI is a bit difficult to understand, but the addon works well.

Pages jumped to? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

does this work when you go to a web site and they link you you to a page to get you to buy into the web site? not sure if I am explaining this right! It is a web page that comes up when you go to a web site! I also want to Block this 2nd site from being linked to again!

Please, make it compatible with Firefox 4.

Right now it doesn't seem to work:

Error: Components.classes['@code.kliu.org/noredirect;4'] is undefined
Source File: chrome://noredirect/content/noredirect.js

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.4).  This user has 2 previous reviews of this add-on.

Update: As of version 1.3, URL Flipper is fully compatible with Firefox 4.

This plugin works seamless, but you need to know regular expressions. Thanks for this useful tool!

This add-on is potentially powerful, but the requirement that you know how to use regular expressions makes it difficult to use.

This is great and works like a charm!!!
One issue thou: Using FF's own "problem loading page" will get a lot of users confused. I'd suggest a "NoRedirect is right on the spot" screen instead, displaying the URL originating the redir and the rule matched.
Anyway: thumbs up from me!

Doesn't work quite correctly Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I just installed NoRedirect but it does not seem to do what it was designed for. I like the idea of whitelisting or blacklisting specific sites, so I tried to block a specific site that always redirected me, which worked fine. Then, however, I decided that I just wanted to block all sites that redirect somehow. So, using its regular expressions, I set up to block all sites via "*" (asterisk), but eventually, NoRedirect did not block a single site this way. Consequently, this add-on serves no value to me because setting up each and every web page is just way too time-consuming.
