Thank you very much for this extension.
I have manage to bypass a bunch of google annoyances among others : google image search's stupid standard view, google's stupid "search instead for" page, google's stupid "about gmail" page, google's stupid etc etc. notice i keep saying google. this is mainly what i'm using it for.
thank you thank you for writing this extension.

It's alright for normal pages Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Seems to work fine for most pages. If you put the url in the address bar it will redirect you.

However it doesn't seem to work for scripts included from pages. Which is unfortunately is what I'm looking for. (redirecting <script src="foo.js"></script> to my own version)

Cool but needs trivial fix Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Many site links are not well formed i.e. no http etc. etc. so when you click 'em no redirection.

Reason: saving a redirection needs an url check and if it fails (formness) then it won't save. Which is a bit lame as the browser accepts it and it works anyway i.e. nothing wrong!

I got around it by exporting, editing and then importing, luckily it doesn't go thru that check malarkey when importing. I just hope the author doesn't "correct" that and that no auto update fixes that "bug". The plebs rool ok...

Basic regex strings confirmed to work in apparently superior regex parsers fail to work here, wildcard examples lifted DIRECTLY FROM HIS HELP PAGE also fail to work and throw errors in a popup. Buggy and doesn't work worth a damn. You'd think the dev would test their own examples before releasing updates.

EDIT: Identical strings as tested before now magically work with no change to the string or anything... not sure what happened, but it works now and finally the Spotify Web Player will never, ever work on this computer again. Desktop software ftw ;)

This does what it says on the tin, and while it may not be for everybody, for those who do need it, it's very useful indeed. Saved me from trying to write a greasemonkey script to do the same job!

Very good Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please help, how to redirect main page http://example.com to http://example.com/myblog/ (of course "http://example.com/bla-bla-bla" is not redirected). Thanks a lot.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is an excellent, powerful and easy to use add-on.
The only reason I don't give it five stars is for lack of accessibility.
What I really miss here is a toolbar icon for easy access (yes I know there is one i the status line, but I don't usually have that open) and from that icon be able to both enable/disable the entire add-on or just individual redirects like the way you can with Greasemonkey (some of my redirects I only want to use half of the time)

No AJAX support? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately, it seems the Redirector does not redirect AJAX calls. But works great otherwise.

Thanks a lot Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for the quick and helpful reply. I ran into the same problem on Google Images i.e the test URL would work, but the actual website wouldn't. I will try doing things with NoScripts and let you know if I achieve any positive results.

Thanks again.

works but it could be so much more clear and/or helpful.

Glad you got it working

Glad you got it working. It's definitely not the user friendliest addon out there, you have to know regex or understand the wildcard substitution to get it to work how you want.

It will probably always be that way though, this addon has been basically in maintenance mode for the last 2 years, I don't use it myself anymore (or Firefox for that matter), I just keep this working on newer versions because people ask me everytime a new FF version comes out to update the addon.
