URL redirector for your browser

October 13, 2018 Leave a comment

Problem
I don’t really like the new design of Reddit. Fortunately, you can still visit the old version at the URL https://old.reddit.com. Sometimes I get to https://www.reddit.com and then I need to rewrite the URL to old.reddit.com. How to automate the process?

Solution
I found an extension for this called Redirector. The Reddit problem was solved with this rule:

Replace your legacy extensions in Firefox

September 27, 2017 Leave a comment

Firefox will switch to a new extension technology and extensions built with the old technology won’t be supported. You must have noticed that several of your add-ons are labeled as “legacy”. More info here.

The site https://mozilla.github.io/extension-finder/ allows you to find a compatible replacement for your Firefox legacy extension.

list your Firefox add-ons

Problem
I use several machines and I would like to create a unified list that contains my favourite Firefox add-ons. This list could be kept in Dropbox, thus I could access it on all my machines. How to generate a list of installed add-ons?

Solution
The add-on Addon List Dumper can do exactly this. Here is a screenshot about this add-on:

bypass redirects in Firefox

Problem
There are certain sites where links are randomly redirected to other sites and if you want to visit the intended link, you need to click on the link three or four times and then maybe you are sent to the correct URL.

Solution
I found a Firefox add-on called Redirect Bypasser that allows you to visit the correct URL. On a link it shows a little icon, and the little icon is linked to the good URL.
