- by Firefox user 5702412, a year agoRated 3 out of 5Just tested it with Firefox 76.0.1.
Let me update my review:
It does stop the end site from seeing the ?fbclid parameter. I reconfirmed this with mitmproxy. (Live HTTP headers on the other hand showed the unchanged HTTP request).
How it could be better:
1) Changes the URL presented by facebook to the end URL, so that facebook doesn't know you've clicked on a link, and
2) All right-click copy link to copy the end link, rather than the facebook link.
Developer responseposted a year agoFacebook uses some php link redirector thing when you click outgoing links. When the URL finishes loading (using the one you posted as an example) does it redirect to "https://www.theonion.com/tyson-promises-meatpackers-who-die-from-coronavirus-wil-1843678529"?
