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.
Does not work correctly with nested brackets.
For example, if you want to eradicate youtube playlists, you'd better locate &list parameter and rebuild the URL without it.
Rather than identifying all parameters for careful string composition.
has nested parentheses which are not parsed correctly by this extension.
I'd propose to use
with this replacement
This way parameter &index= will remain, but won't have any effect.
And the result will be removal of &list parameter which I am talking about.
I'm running this with FF v50 32-bit. Works great! I use it so 2 more URLs end up at 1 to eliminate duplicate entries in LastPass. (For example, http://10.1.2.3->http://realhost and http://alias->http://realhost. Then, save only a login entry for "realhost".)
Not much to say about this, other than it works, and works well. Seems to be exactly as powerful as it needs to be.
This was a great addon but it doesn't work on Firefox Developer Edition 51.0a2. Although Developer Edition may not officially be supported but does anyone know a solution for this?
Updated on Nov 8:
Hi Einar, thank you for your reply and I'm sorry that the above behavior may have been because of my configuration issue. This addon works fine on Firefox Developer Edition 51.0a2.
This addon is barely supported anymore. Once 51 gets released I'll try to fix it if it still doesn't work.
great add-on, easy and useful. but it lacks the support for redirecting to (file:///) URI on local machine.
Thanks. The API I use for redirecting doesn't allow file:/// redirects, so that feature will probably never be in this extension.
Save lot of time when debugging !
powerful and works well - thanks for your work
Used it to force firefox to use port 8080 instead of 80 for a specific site. At first it seemed to work alright, but then I saw that when submitting form data it doesn't perform the redirect.
The latest version available when updating is 3.1.0 (updated on August 5 2016), which isn't working with FF 48.0 (redirection rules aren't saved).
Found out what's causing the problem. The addon "RequestPolicy Continued 1.0beta12.3" prevents Redirector 3.1.0 from working properly.
Are there any errors in the Browser Console? I'm using 3.1 on FF 48 without problems.
When I go to create a new redirector, the Save button is greyed out. Should I use an older version that's compatible?
It's grayed out until all necessary fields have been filled out and the pattern matches the example url.
It does not work in the last days on Firefox 48 + Redirector 3.1.0.
Not saved settings redirects.
Try updating to version 3.2.
Does exactly what it says on the tin.
It works well for urls typed directly in the address bar.
But is it possible to also redirect links when I click them on web pages?
It should work for that as well, I don't know why it isn't working for you.
I'm giving it a 5 star :)
I use Firefox Nightly (50) and Aurora/DevEdition(49) as my main browsers and it does not work on these versions. Please fix this before it hits stable.
I'll try to get it working before 49 hits stable, am planning to migrate it to WebExtensions soon.
Now I can bypass youtube homepage. I don't like the Recommended videos so this is a nice workaround
I use this plugin to redirect http to https to avoid http traffic hijack.
