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".)

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?

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

Not bad Rated 4 out of 5 stars

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.

Where do I find version 3.2? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

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.

Doesn't work with 45.3.0 ESR Rated 1 out of 5 stars

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It does not work in the last days on Firefox 48 + Redirector 3.1.0.
Not saved settings redirects.

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Try updating to version 3.2.

Top notch Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does exactly what it says on the tin.

Doesn't work when opening a link on a web page Rated 3 out of 5 stars

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?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.6). 

It should work for that as well, I don't know why it isn't working for you.

Nice addon but it does not work in DevEdition on Nightly :( Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.6). 

I'll try to get it working before 49 hits stable, am planning to migrate it to WebExtensions soon.

It works! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Now I can bypass youtube homepage. I don't like the Recommended videos so this is a nice workaround

very useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use this plugin to redirect http to https to avoid http traffic hijack.

Brilliant! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

With just a handful of rules, I'm skipping some truly awful interstitial advertising during logins to a few sites.

Thank you!

Does the job Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Good interface and it works. If you get "private mode" error message in normal mode delete redirector.* files from root of firefox profile.
