Google link redirection bypassing prevention by extensions
I just checked the Google Canada search plugin, and found that the extension Redirect Cleaner was no longer preventing the redirection of links through Google. When I checked Google HTTPS from my bookmarks, the redirects are not happening, whereas using HTTP did have the redirects. What is going on? Is Google circumventing redirect removal somehow? Why did I not see redirects with the secure Google pages?
I am now using "google-no-tracking-url", which is a bit better. It did not work on Google from the search plugin, though. Does Google refrain from redirecting links on secure pages?

I'm having trouble following along with what you need help with. Is this a Firefox-specific issue that you're having? It sounds like it's more Google related than Firefox related, but I could be wrong.
I haven't heard of the Google Canada plugin that you mentioned -- what is that? Sorry, this isn't a very helpful response, I know!
The Google Canada plugin is a search plugin that I got from the Mycroft website.
