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 no-skip-urls-list are checked for embedded URLs and redirects are skipped. Depending on the pages visited, this can cause problems. For example a dysfunctional login. The no-skip-urls-list can be edited to avoid these problems. There is also a skip-urls-list mode to avoid this kind of problem altogether. In skip-urls-list mode, all URLs for which redirects should be skipped need to be added to the skip-urls-list manually.

Some websites use multiple url parameters like this:

www.example.com/page-we-want-to-skip?first=www.want-to-go-here.com&second=www.do-not-care-about-this-url.com

Skip Redirect does not know which is the right parameter, but you can edit the no-skip-parameter-list. Adding first would skip to the URL of second and vice versa. Adding both, first and second would cause no skipping.
