It works, but not secure Rated 2 out of 5 stars

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.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Not actually compatible with FF Android.

Awsome Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple, very useful add-on.

Does what I need Rated 4 out of 5 stars

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.

Awesome, please make it available for firefox on android Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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 :)

Works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I could redirect youtube's URL from default to /embed/videoid for automatic full page display

online rule Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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

Other Systems Rated 4 out of 5 stars

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.

doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

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.

Strange rules Rated 3 out of 5 stars

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.

Nice Rated 4 out of 5 stars

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.

Keeps things tidy with LastPass Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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://realhost and http://alias->http://realhost. Then, save only a login entry for "realhost".)

good Rated 2 out of 5 stars

very good

Utterly fantastic Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Not much to say about this, other than it works, and works well. Seems to be exactly as powerful as it needs to be.

Works fine on FF Dev Edition 51.0a2 (was: Doesn't work on FF Dev Edition 51.0a2) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.

Outstanding Rated 4 out of 5 stars

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.

Very versatile and Powerful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Save lot of time when debugging !

exactly what was needed! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

powerful and works well - thanks for your work
