"Replace URL of the link" is poorly implemented because it hides the menu.
When modifying page links, the following needs to be available to the user:
1) It needs to be obvious that the link has been modified by the extension. Show a menu, change the icon, etc. Show something so I know the link has been modified when I mouseover it.
2) Give me the option to use the original link.
It's powerful but the operation makes no sense.
To remove redirects on link mouseover, we can either:
1) don't modify the indirect link, give the user an option to use the direct link. (this addon's method)
2) make the link direct, give the user an option to use the indirect link(s).
There is only one consideration to determine which one is more efficient from a user perspective. Which is desired most often: direct or indirect links?
I think everyone can agree that the direct link is desired WAY more often. Why would I want the extra step of having to manually choose the direct link if that's what I want 9 times out of 10?
In fact, indirect links are only useful on specific sites which is why the user should be able to whitelist them.
Redirect Remover was the best...
Please add toolbar icon for one click enable/disable.This user has a previous review of this add-on.

TGM has serious problems in the current beta (FF20). Restoring suspended groups is impossible and, in some cases, session tabs and groups are not restored on browser restart. FF19 is the last stand.This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Excellent; just needs a toolbar button for easy enable/disable.
It might not be dead quite yet. The support site is down because the My-sv.net host has called it quits. Axel may move the site to a different domain...

Any plans to faviconize pinned tabs?

It would be great if this extension had an option to actually emulate the middle click. This would allow extensions like Redirect Remover and MClickFocusTab to function properly when right clicking a link.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.6.3.1-signed).

Thanks for keeping this extension current! The best of it's kind.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.20.1-signed).
Something I didn't know I needed!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1-signed).
Awesome, but doesn't work when restoring a snapshot with the Prospector - Snaporama addon.
Great addon, but breaks 'Switch to tab' in the url bar. Instead of switching, it just loads the tab again.
The videos appear to be cached but they are not loaded from the cache on the next visit. It looks like this is because youtube is adding a unique 'signature' parameter and it's being included in the cache key. Do you see any way around this?
Could you remove the timeout on wheel gestures? I use it to switch tabs. If I'm scrolling through tabs and stop for a few moments while I'm holding right mouse, the wheel gesture stops working.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (126.96.36.199-signed).
The ability to limit how many tabs to remember would make it faster and the menu easier to navigate.
