How can I block a redirect to a captive portal with this extension?

I always want to know if I am being redirected to a different name virtual host or IP address. I have just one deny rule for source=
Code: Select all
.*
, dnserror=no. However, this does not seem to catch all redirs.

e.g. visit http://unilever.co.in/ and the 301 redirect to http://www.unilever.co.in/ seems to succeed.
However, the second redirect to http://www.hul.co.in/ is caught.

Are redirs to sub-domains automatically whitelisted, or is something else going on here?

It's been awhile since there was any activity on this thread but I just started using this add-on and have a question, hopefully someone's around who can answer.

I was able to stop redirects on a particular domain, but it redirects several times before it opens the page I want. Every time it redirects, it opens a new tab, which is a dead end of course, but I still have to close each tab which really isn't that much better than just letting it redirect and closing that tab. Is there any way to stop a new tab from opening, for example can it just skip over the redirects and go straight to the proper destination? Or is there a way to close all the new tabs automatically as they're opened? Thanks.

I have tried every way I can think of to block this redirect and no method is working.

http://ad.directrev
http://ad.directrev*
http:\/\/ad.directrev.*

Can you please give some suggestions on how to block this link?

I don't know how to do this regular expressions business, and all I was hoping to do by installing NoRedirect is block the recently-fashionable practice of websites that detect when you're using an ad blocker, and redirect you to a nag page ("We noticed that you're using an ad blocker...).

The first thing I tried was looking up a word on http://www.thesaurus.com. It shows the entries, then goes to the nag page: http://www.thesaurus.com/why-am-i-seeing-ads

So I entered:

Code: Select all
http://www.thesaurus.com/why-am-i-seeing-ads

...into NoRedirect, literally like this:

...but it doesn't work. In other words, I am trying to use NoRedirect as a blacklist on a webpage-by-webpage basis. Is this simply not possible in NoRedirect, or is there an adjustment to the syntax I can make for direct entry of a web address?

Edit: I noticed that the defaults have a caret (^) character prefix, but adding it didn't make a difference.... Also, I noticed that all of the defaults had escaped the dot (.) characters, and I'm now at this:

Code: Select all
^http://www\.thesaurus\.com/why-am-i-seeing-ads

...but it still goes to the nag page. I can't figure it out. If there is some regular expression syntax I can use common for every website that does this, it would be great!

It's very doubtful that this extension will be converted. The author hasn't updated the extension or posted on these forums for six years.

You're assuming someone here knows the author's real name rather than their user name here on the forums. That's possible but unlikely after six years. The listed web site for the extension hasn't been updated in that same period of time. The extension has been abandoned and unless someone want to take it up and tackle coding a web extension version, you should consider it obsolete and unavailable.
