Make it better Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Great, but there is place for better. Sekander94 is right. Many sites today use content form sites like facebook.com, and I hate to see instead of this content ERROR, just because my ISP blocks it.

i came across this addon while searching for a solution to redirect all http://facebook* urls to http://facebook* since my isp has banned the 1st.
it's working great on facebook, but im having problems viewing facebook videos embedded on 3rd party websites. i guess because they have the redirection url on the left of "http", such as
https://media.preachingtoday.com/flash/player.swf?file=http://video.ak.facebook.com/video-ak-sf2p/v22832/45/59/100349663330731_50473.mp4&skin=/js/skinddizi.swf&backcolor=111111&frontcolor=cccccc&lightcolor=9900FF
i'll be happy if you could help me with the pattern i should use to overcome this problem.
other than that, thanks developer this addon rocks

Would be great if it worked for background images included in a page using css. Otherwise, still very useful

porting to other web browsers Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Is there any possibility of your porting this add-in to safari, chrome, or at least firefox vs 4.0?

The redirector is great.

matrix of redirection Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for this. Please consider creating a comparison matrix for your extension and QuietUrl, amo:5243

The most obvious difference I see is that his supports only regex while yours both that and wildcards.

hopefully this extension will help avoid the annoyance of visiting fastmail.dm when I intend fastmail.fm. Sure I could use keyword (bookmark), and I do, but sometimes my splelling needs help but "awesome"bar does not spell check afaik.


Will this play nicely with NoScript and RequestPolicy?

Will this play nicely with Policy Manager, by Piro, amo:7066?


Certainly this provides a much more appealing alternative than facing the slow, uphill grind of learning JS for GreaseMonkey :)

Am using this to eliminate google's irritating and intrusive redirect when launching news search results from my RSS reader. De-escapes the resultant URL, too. Flawless.

Okay this is totally pointless addon, that wont let you take currently active URL then add lets say &frame=1 to it & then navigate to it.

why cant the addon do this?

Can you give more info?

Hi

It can definitely do this. If you give me your patterns/redirect urls then I can tell you what the problem is.

best regards,
Einar

this is totally useless.you cant take the URL of any currently active page & add &pjk=frame_2 for example. why cant the addon do this?

Great plugin but limited in use. It only redirects the address in the browser address bar. It would be nice to redirect all machine requests no matter how they were made (img, js, css, iframe). This would make this a great development tool (ie. redirecting a JS request to a modified version on a local webserver).

Very useful, however the "Export" function does not work here. No file is generated at all, and I don't feel like rewriting my 30 redirections in the 3 computers I use...

What OS/Version

Hi, what operating system and Firefox version are you using? I've heard of some problems on Macs, but can't really verify them since I don't have one.

This plugin fixed a weird Facebook problem I have at work - for some reason, I can only access Facebook shared links, if they are accessed through HTTPS - this plugin now redirects all http://www.facebook.com links to https://www.facebook.com :-)

Keep up the good work!

Decent, but it doesn't redirect AJAX requests (only page navigations), meaning that it can't be used to redirect dynamic page features to a different server.

Just what i was looking for!

I go to an internet school that requires 900 hours per year, logged in to graduate. To get these hours, I have to go into what they call study hall to keep myself logged in. There has been a bug in the study hall for a while. Every minute the page reloads, but instead of the regular url it would go to "website.website.org/studyhall" instead of "website.org/studyhall"

I just set it to redirect the bad one to the correct one, all fixed! My minutes are going up already. With the macro i made to log in early in the morning, I should have my 900 hours in no time!

Thanks for this! xoxo

Powerful plugin.

At first, I got impression as if it is very simple plugin for very simple use.

'CHANGE the description' to something like 'URL Rewriter'

Clearly state wild card and regex support in description.
