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.

Requirements:

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:

protocol://dev_hostname:dev_portnubmer/wps/portal/abcd/xyz/u!/abcd

should be redirected to

protocol://localhost:localhostPortnumber/wps/portal/abcd/xyz/u!/abcd

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.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?q=redirect While most try to block or bypass redirects, there may be something you can use. You can also search using other words.
