Skip Redirect

Some web pages use intermediary pages before redirecting to a final page. This webextension tries to extract the final url from the intermediary url and goes there straight away if successful. As an example, try this url:

Please give feedback(see below) if you find websites where this fails or where you get redirected in a weird way when this add-on is enabled but not when it's disabled.

See the add-on's preferences (also available by clicking the toolbar icon) for options. By default all URLs but the ones matching a blacklist are checked for embedded URLs and redirects are skipped. Depending on the pages visited, this can cause problems. For example a dysfunctional login. The blacklist can be edited to avoid these problems. There is also a whitelist mode to avoid this kind of problem altogether. In whitelist mode, all URLs for which redirects should be skipped need to be configured by hand.
