@lonm firefox detects when you're in a network that tries to redirect the browser to a captive portal for login. In case of a TLS connection, of course, the certificates do not match. So the browser refuses to continue the request. As a result, you'll never get to the login page. Firefox solves this by offering a "login button" in case of a TLS violation which does some arbitrary request to some plain http resource allowing for the redirection to happen. Once the login done, everything works normal. I'm currently sitting in a meeting in EC premises and it took me to start firefox to login to their network.
@orbik I'm glad someone else sees the value in this.
You have phrased it better than I did.
I just ran into another use case today.
I was browsing the web, looking at some research papers that were created using latex2html. This software generates html that refers to several gifs as if they are always available, such as the "next" and "previous" buttons. But as the web progressed, some of these pages fell subject to bit-rot, and the gifs are no longer where the html thinks they should be.
If I had the ability to add these URL rewrites, I could tell the browser where to find the gifs, and ultimately had a more pleasant browsing experience. In this case, I'm not sure if I would have put them in a directory on my PC, and tied the broken image links to my copies, or if I would have wanted to define the URL so they were associated with pages on the website, so the next time I browsed there the icons would just "work".
I don't know about defining in terms of regexes or not. I certainly can see advantages. Of course, a "map broken link" option on the right click menu would also be nice too.
Of course, this is assuming that I could convince someone at Vivaldi that the effort is even worth doing.

Vielleicht solltet ihr die Anderen User warnen, damit die nicht drauf reinfallen..
Wenn dieses Pop-up trotz uBlock auftaucht, kannes nur daran liegen, as du dir irgend ein Adware eingefangen hast, uBlock verhindert nur das die Seite dir solche präsentiert, aber nicht die, die sich in deinem System gemütlich gemacht haben, dafür wäre eigentlich dein AV zuständig.
@whitten said in Option to Prevent Redirects and Page Reloads:
@Stardust Is this a real option or is this a request you are making?
This is a request. It was a real option in Firefox some time ago, but Mozilla has removed it from the settings 😡
It was disabled by default iirc.
It is still available in Firefox about:config
Aunque ha pasado bastante tiempo, se ha resuelto tras pruebas, arreglos y novedades?

For me it's a bit odd to see such requests. I mean, Yandex is itself nearly a piece of adware, banned in some countries. It hacks my browser settings all the time. I mean its start page. So I would recomend remocing the Yandex browser altogether.
On the other hand, if you have the virus anyway, there is a good removal guide for trusted browsers https://macsecurity.net/view/57-how-to-remove-trovi-adware-from-mac
