Stopping redirects from a website

Hey,
Can someone tell me how can I stop a website from redirecting me automatically to another one. I would like to analyze the network requests it makes before redirecting me.

Thanks

Did you try to check "Persistent logs" / "Preserve log" on the DevTools?

That url in particular is placeholder for fubar and it will always revolve. Avoid clicking such URLs out of curiosity.

& ignore spam email ...

When I am curious... I prefer using tracking redi tool, something like WhereGoes http://wheregoes.com/

I do ignore spam email, just have to check when receiving too many from the same source (have to report these). The link that I posted was already layered under other URLs. Go to that URL using this http://www.getlinkinfo.com.

@-Mark- What is fubar?
