update: I was able to turn off logging by editing the extension and resign it, I'm using it again now and it's working great
Works every time. Saves a lot of my time and effort. Thanks for offering this powerful and handy tool.
No need to block site anymore, just forward it!
It works, but it doesn't rewrite link urls. You either have to open them in a new tab, or copy and paste the url into the address bar. At least that's how it worked on the broken website I was trying to fix.
I see my issue is discussed below. Added two stars...
I use it to redirect https://www.facebook.com/ to https://www.facebook.com/?sk=h_chr.
Everything works perfect.
Does everything I hoped for and more :) Thank you so much!
add auto redirect after load failed
I was able to remove 2 other addons thanks to this.
Spamming browser console.
Yeah, sorry about that. Debug feature that got left in. Will remove in next version.
Works fine, but doesn't redirect some links at all until the page loaded from that not-redirected link is manually refreshed.
I'm kind of at the mercy of the webRequest API that Firefox provides there. I redirect every request they pass to me, but don't really know why they wouldn't pass the requests you're mentioning to the extension.
Not sure why it seems like so many people are complaining.
Would be great if there were a way to automatically sync the configurations between firefox installs, but import/export works fine.
Thanks, I'm glad you like the extension. Sync would be cool, but I'm not really working much on this anymore. Would welcome contributions from others though.
Visits the page before redirecting. Would be OK otherwise.
Easy to configure, also able to export configurations
And it's already compatible with firefox 57+ since last year
What else would you want?
it's just way easier to just click "Allow" every time it comes up, than trying to figure out how this POS works.
It works like it should, sorry you couldn't find a way to make it work for you.
I've planned to use this add-on as privacy tool, for discarding tracking tokens (like google "utm_source") from URL and bypassing "away scripts" (that counts what external URL user clicked).
Unfortunately, this add-on first visits unmodified address, and only if original page loaded, redirects to another page).
Thus, it's useless for privacy purpose.
P.S. Updated FF to 55.0.3, issue is gone.
Normally it doesn't send a request to the original address. However, since FF 52 there' this bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1345893 which always sends a request to the original url first. It's fixed and should be released in Firefox 55 apparently.
Not actually compatible with FF Android.
Simple, very useful add-on.
Just installed, love the regex option, makes it easy to define rules (once you've tackled learning regex - try regexr.com to test and learn, helped me tons). Will update after some actual use. :)
Glad you like it. I'll try to support Android better some day when I have an Android device. Also, pull requests are welcome if someone else wants to implement it.
It works great! If you could just add support for firefox android, that would make it perfect. Currently I can't find any way to enter rules on Android. Thanks :)
Or make the code open source, so others can do it. I can't access the code provided in the link. It says access denied.
The code is at https://github.com/einaregilsson/Redirector , pull requests are welcome :)
I could redirect youtube's URL from default to /embed/videoid for automatic full page display
i want to import rules from online. can you add this feature?
I'm not really adding new features to this addon anymore, it's just in maintenance mode.
rightclick -> save link as
the URL/address still like that ...
andOR something like : redirector -> then send to download manager
i do really need this ... so i use : rightclick -> save link as
but it doesnt worked ...
its only worked when :
rightclick -> open new tab/window
This works well on Firefox but what about androids and Iphones
I just haven't tested it. I should probably mark it as not supported there until I can do that.
No way to interface with the add-on. No menu, no button. Compatible with ff android? Yea right! Same story with %90 of them on AMO. Show up as compatible when it is not.
You're right, I should probably remove the "Compatible with Firefox Android" thing. I just thought that WebExtensions addons should work anywhere.
Why does this add-on require an example for each URL? Makes no sense to me.
Also I would love to import and export to CSV files because generating JSON out of my own rules is a Herculian task.
Also, please, change the view to table or something like that:
COLUMN 1: Name (optional)
COLUMN 2: Rule
COLUMN 3: Replace
COLUMN 4: Extra options
COLUMN 5: Checkbox (enabled)
Example Url is required because it forces people to test their redirects before sending me emails complaining about something not working. It seriously reduces my email a lot :)
I have no plans to add any more features to this addon, or do any major changes to it. It's basically just in maintenance mode now.
