DrWeb conflict is not fixed Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It's a pity but version 0.5.25 didn't resolve the conflict with DrWeb link checker: https://github.com/RequestPolicy/requestpolicy/issues/287
I still have to "Temporally allow all redirections" if I want to check a link. For information, I have the latest stable Firefox and DrWeb Link Checker 2.5.8.
Incompatibility report Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It is impossible to use <a href="https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/drweb-anti-virus-link-checker/?src=ss">Dr.Web LinkChecker</a> simalteniosly with RequestPolicy. I tried to run Dr.Web LinkChecker on sites where all redirections are allowed: the checker opens its pop-up and starts endless "checking". As I understand it tries to connect with Dr.Web's databases but RequestPolicy doesn't allow this. And only when I choose the option "Temporally allow all redirections", the checker gets the chance and finishes its work. I think it is very strange that I have to allow something on sites where everything are already allowed.
I understand that RequestPolicy must block redirections but I would like to ask to make exceptions for Dr.Web Linkchecker. This add-on is a sort of pro-active defence and I think it should be allowed everywhere and every time.
Thanks for the report. I'm tracking this bug here: https://github.com/RequestPolicy/requestpolicy/issues/287 ---- This should be fixed in the next release of RequestPolicy (0.5.25).
