Is there any extensions in the same vein as Neat URL, Lean URL, Pure URL that work with Pale Moon? Its purpose is to remove unneeded URL parameters when I clicked on a link (e.g. "utm_content").

Is it okay to edit "Firefox" to "Pale Moon"?

version number ёпт! ;)
in orig we have:

<!-- Firefox -->
<em:targetApplication>
<Description>
<em:id>{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}</em:id>
<em:minVersion>32.0</em:minVersion>
<em:maxVersion>46.*</em:maxVersion>
</Description>
</em:targetApplication>



edit version:

<!-- Firefox -->
<em:targetApplication>
<Description>
<em:id>{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}</em:id>
<em:minVersion>24.0</em:minVersion>
<em:maxVersion>46.*</em:maxVersion>
</Description>
</em:targetApplication>


... then install.

"Pure URL" is listed at the Pale Moon Known Incompatible Add-ons website, along with the workaround extension Redirect Remover. The "Known Incompatible Add-ons" website is a good resouce to check, before posting , for "Known Incompatible Add-ons". For me, "Redirect Remover" installed directly from AMO (Click "+ Add to Firefox" button). Thus, unlike "Redirect Bypasser", there will be no need to modify, beforehand, Redirect Remover's "install.rdf" file.

You can also use Moon Tester Tool, developed by a member of the Pale Moon team, to install this extension. It will make the necessary changes to the install.rdf for you.

Let me clarify, I'm just an ordinary participant of the Pale Moon community, and not a member of the Pale Moon team. The fact that I manage the browser localization as a coordinator also does not give me any official status, but only specific duties taken voluntarily.

That "Firefox" is a remark. It has markers around it to tell the software to ignore it. What needs to be changed are the ID number of the application and the min and max version numbers for the application. You can find a set of those things in any Pale Moon theme. Swapping those lines would work.

Some of the mentioned extensions are very old, shouldn't these type of extensions maintain some sort of updated list for their redirects? Or is it not relevant?

I tried Redirect Bypasser but I don’t see how it can be made to clean URLs.

Here are a couple methods, either of which worked for me...

Alternative 1. As mentioned here: https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=15769#p114602:

  • Download the source code zipped folder from /releases to a convenient location. This is essentially CleanLinks with a different file extension.
  • Unzip it with your preferred archiving software.
  • Inside that unzipped folder (CleanLinks-2.7.0) is a 2nd folder/directory of same name that contains the CleanLinks files. Those files will need to be in the root directory of the xpi for installing CleanLinks.
  • So open that 2nd directory, select all the files inside and send them to a new zipped folder. (In other words: DO NOT include the folder - ONLY ZIP UP ITS CONTENTS.)
  • Change the file extension of the newly created zipped folder from .zip to .xpi.
  • Install by dragging the xpi onto the add-ons manager (about:addons), or by clicking the gear at top of the add-ons manager page and selecting "Install Add-on From File...".

Alternative 2. Install using the extension XPICompiler:

  • As before... Download the CleanLinks source code zipped folder from /releases.
  • Install XPICompiler.
  • Put about:xpiler into the address bar, hit Enter. It provides an internal page with prompts to follow for making the downloaded zipped folder into a useable xpi for installing locally.
  • Install by dragging...etc., as above.

Thanks Coffeebreak; I used the manual method, that was easy.

I'm unsure how to configure the rules in Redirect Bypasser. So I opted to try Clean Links. Through trial & error, I found that the option Redirect Watcher & HTTP Observer must be enabled in order to clean all the links. So thanks so much, fillerup, JustOff & Coffeebreak.
