You could make a bug report. It would be nice to know if it's really Pale Moon's fault.
Please don't urge people to make silly bug reports.
Pale Moon is not Seamonkey. You got redirected because of the faulty rule you entered.
I posted the correct rule for a REASON.

I did not enter a rule, I did exactly what I said and checked the box to disable javascript globally and then checked the icon to enable it for google search. I don't think there was anything confusing at all in what I said. In fact, I was the one who originally blamed it on the OP's hand-written rule (which in retrospect was incorrect of me). Also I did not urge anyone to make a bug report, I said that the OP could make one, but I would rather figure out what witchery Google is up to. Fixing up Pale Moon to respond to Google's hijinx in the same way that Seamonkey does is not a solution to me. Nor is giving google "trusted site" status. In fact, my own solution remains the one that I've used for several years - banishing google from systems under my control.
Self-compiled Pale Moon on Libre-antiX GNU/Linux respin, 32-bit and 64-bit, and on Hyperbola GNU/Linux 64-bit

OK.
After reading your post I checked now again.
This time I get redirected too!
I checked several times before and it worked fine contrary to this morning.
It seems that Google made some changes lately.
After a few tests I get now the damned captcha so I'll give up.

Anyway, easiest way to get around is to toggle scripting on/off via extension.

I found a working user script that removes some data of the attribute that causes redirection.

Fix Google Links (no jquery)

Doesn't explain the difference between PM and SM when it's present as-is, but at least it helps.
I replaced the @match line with @include line in the script (so it doesn't work exclusively on google.com):

Code: Select all

// @include      https://www.google.tld/search?*
