I want to know is there any add-on to redirect url in mozilla firefox. In Google Chrome there is an add-on Switcheroo. I need the url switcher like this in mozilla firefox. I have already tried with redirect url add-on of mozilla. But its not redirecting correctly.


I need to test the localhost portal pages. But in few places the dev environment url is hard coded. I want to redirect those urls to localhost to test the changes which I made in local.

Eg redirection:


should be redirected to


For this redirection in google chrome switcheroo add-on I have configured like this:-http://dev_hostname:dev_portnubmer ---> http://localhost:localhostPortnumber. The add-on changing the protocol, domain name, port number. It's not changing the rest of the url part. Its working well as I expected. But in Mozilla I need an add-on like this.

I checked the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) using redirect in the search. While most try to block or bypass redirects, there may be something you can use. You can also search using other words.
