About addons - google redirection and tracking

Post by Tyler Durden » Sat Nov 19, 2016 6:24 pm

Since years, with firefox, there is always a good extension because of good developers you can find in the addon list for bypass google redirect.

Like this one

Code: Select all

https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/firefox/addon/remove-google-tracking/?src=api
as you see you can still download it, but it's don't work. That was a good addon.
No update since 2014. And if you read the comment of the develloper he said us his addon wil no longer working.
Important Information: 2016/03/16
Mozilla is changing a lot of things about add-on development again. So this addon might be stop working in the future.
He explain that the firefox politic changing about developing addons.

"The Future of Developing Firefox Add-ons | Mozilla Add-ons Blog"
https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2015/08/21/the-future-of-developing-firefox-add-ons/

"Add-ons/developer/communication - MozillaWiki - Upcoming Changes in Add-on Development"https://wiki.mozilla.org/Add-ons/developer/communication#Upcoming_Changes_in_Add-on_Development
Anyway, firefox let this addon online... :-)

You can find another old addon call "google redirect fixer" by this develloper
http://matagus.github.io/remove-google-redirects-addon/
But same thing, no support to the dev, and he don't look working good. Perhaps no update.

AND NOW we have some shit addon at the top suggest by firefox:
Like this one by Abine inc who propose a premium service! lol :oops:
https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/firefox/addon/donottrackplus/?src=userprofile
And their other addon are not work good.


Perhaps this indepedant one working google-redirect-rewrite-remove (no try actually, no info on it)
https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/firefox/addon/google-redirect-rewrite-remove/?src=search
Or we have to get a greasemonkey recent and updating script for stop google redirection, but for addons firefox it's seem hard.

Please send me a feedback about what you think of that, and eventually a good script or addon who do that in 2016.
I will continue search and send message if i find a working addon or a recent script.

Firefox changing... aha i love their option about "notifications" on websites you have to activate it each time you connect for a session, hihihi.
BUT we have the annoyance list :banana: Rocking!

Abyway GREETZ to Al open source developers and community :biggrin:
See ya

Hey hello smed79, thank you for feedback, and addon proposition!
i install after restart, look perfect.

I have trying the addon i found before, and it's still working for info, but no update since long time. Unsigned and unlicensed by mozilla. Do you think It is important today for security? that kind of thing. Because no mozilla license or no signed? I think if look about develloper no. but... i dont really know.
https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/firefox/addon/google-redirect-rewrite-remove/?src=search

Version 0.5 Info
Dernière mise à jour : July 17, 2015
Distribué sous Licence personnalisée

The addons links you send, one (s link fix) is under mozilla license and unsigned, the other (referer) personal license, signed.
signed/ unsigned?
personal license / Mozilla license ?

Do you know if that kind of addons for google redirect are causing problems in google translate?
