stopped working since Firefox Update to 22.0
Sadly following the FF22 update, this formerly great extension no longer works and has been abandoned by the developer. So time to switch to the slightly inferior, but at least functioning, Redirect Cleaner.
Was a great Add-On, doesn't work under FF v.22.0
Sadly, the Developer STOPPED THE DEVELOPMENT and is OFFERING EVERYONE to take over the project
You can read it here: http://redirectremover.mozdev.org/
I hope someone will do that.
Yes, worked under 21.0, lifeless under 22.0
I am on Firefox 21.0 and the addon works just dandy for me.
Hello! Redirect Remover 2.6.4 stopped working in Firefox 22 Beta. I am very concerned about this, around us a lot of redirects and the addon was last updated 3 years ago. Please fix! Very soon the release of Firefox 22
Works in Firefox till version 19.x, but it stopped working in Firefox 20 (as many others addons, a terrible headache this update from 19 to 20 for me).
Sorry I tried it, it didn't work still having the same problem - getting redirected every time I select a link - may have to Quit Mozzilla
Useful. Can see you advantages of using this from time to time

Wonder what "natsumerio" was smoking LOL! (on month from now)
My FF version is 15.0b1.
I don't know what some other people are smoking, but they're just stupid. It's 2012-August-29, & "Redirect remover 2.6.4" (the latest version) works on EVERY site that I go to.
However, I WILL give one strong warning to those who are new to this addon. Do NOT use this when you're trying to LOGIN to YOUTUBE (& probably some other sites that I can't remember at the moment). Youtube & some other sites DEPEND on redirects for their login process.
Not very easy to use, doesn't stop the latest redirects. I found the more recently updated Redirect Cleaner and it works much better. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/redirect-cleaner/
Abandoned. Don't install, NOT WORKING!
Redirect Remover is conflict with Status-4-Evar.
When both add-ons are installed, the "RDR: [cleaned link]" text no longer appears in the status bar when you hover the mouse over links containing redirect(s), and the special cursor (set in Redirect Remover's options) is no longer displayed.
Great in theory but it's now 2 years old
not work in google cse
not work in some cases
this is the one of the best addons
And Thank You
Why a referrer URL is contained in page's media when Redirect Remover is active, even no redirect.
When Redirect Remover is disabled, or setting does not send referer, referer is not mixed.
In a HTTPS page, mixed contents warning message comes out because of this behavior.
Ok for standard clicks, but need to be made to work with firegestures (mouse gestures)
In Ff 8 when you point with the mouse on a link at the left or right bottom, the link will be shown in a pop-up respectively on the other side. With activated "Redirect Remover" the pop-up is shown always on the left side and overlaps with the written link and both are unreadable flickering then. Last release was over a year ago, so it will be discontinued. Better change to another similar add-on.
If you try it with amazon.de and the first textual link on the upper left you'll see what I mean.
You won't be able to login as it shows some openID crap.
This one seems to be discontinued, https://addons.mozilla.org/nl/firefox/addon/redirect-cleaner/?src=search works fine for me :)
I wanted to disable the cleanup for Magnet links on one site - added to the white list the site and "magnet:", but it did not help and it will still clear links.
Working, but no support at all, you can't click links on the bottom left.
Please fix it!
