Reveal URL in search results?

Pardon if this has been 'done to death here'.

I'm trying to document URLs on the web but my search results
contain links that are all crudded up with browser-specific
garbage if the link is longer than say 67 characters.
I see that duckduckgo still does this properly and I can edit
the results string from Yahoo to clean off the junk.

I want clean URLs after duckduckgo and Yahoo change to the
Google model.  I don't want to run the crudded URL through
a link shortener because that won't get me the clean link.

I searched for a FAQ for netscape.public.mozilla.browser.
I Googled
I Yahoo'ed
I even duckduckgo'ed

Nothing!

Here's an example:

duckduckgo "Copy Link Location" URL:
http://www.cs.washington.edu/lab/facilities/hwlab/pdfs/syndoc/synpro_tutorial.pdf

Google "Copy Link Location" URL:
http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=synplify%20pro%20tutorial&source=web&cd=2&ved=0CC8QFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cs.washington.edu%2Flab%2Ffacilities%2Fhwlab%2Fpdfs%2Fsyndoc%2Fsynpro_tutorial.pdf&ei=uPF-T9OvB4_QiAKF27C-Aw&usg=AFQjCNHHMCbRNgBTMCvzHUirTIQUGyDLIw&cad=rja

AltaVista "Copy Link Location" URL:
http://search.yahoo.com/r/_ylt=A0oGdOZ.8n5P0kkAhFIPxQt.;_ylu=X3oDMTByZWgwN285BHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDMQRjb2xvA3NrMQR2dGlkAw--/SIG=135ko2ka0/EXP=1333748478/**http%3a//www.cs.washington.edu/lab/facilities/hwlab/pdfs/syndoc/synpro_tutorial.pdf

Your thoughts, please?

Thanks.

A.  One of these Firefox extensions looks like it could do the job.

    Redirect Cleaner
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/redirect-cleaner/

    Redirect Remover
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/redirect-remover/ | http://redirectremover.mozdev.org/ | http://getsatisfaction.com/betterbrowser/products/betterbrowser_firefox_redirect_remover

    You might have noticed that there are hardly any real posts 
    in 'here' (this group), except spam.   As for why this is, see
    http://groups.google.com/group/netscape.public.mozilla.browser/msg/33678c39134833f2

Thanks, Ralph!

Armed with your info, I uncovered the *Redirect Cleaner 1.7.0*
add-on for my browser 'Seamonkey'.

It works perfectly.

:)

OIC!

I've dropped netscape.public.mozilla.browser and am now subscribed to
mozilla.support.seamonkey.

Thanks again!

URL for Google Search Results
This may be an old topic. I hope this is the right place to ask this question. Using Firefox 17.0.10 and doing a Google search, I receive the usual page listing the search results. Unless it's a clearly marked Google paid promotion, clicking the search result used to bring the URL of only the search result into Firefox. However I have recently noticed that the URL of the search result is now always part of a very long Google url. For example, when I Google "test", I get the first search result as the url for www.test.com. If I place my mouse on the search res...

Displaying "Sorry there were no results for your search" for a search that yields no results
Hello, I've got an SQL datasource and a GridView control on a page called textsearch.aspx (in a VS web application). The text that the user is searching for is passed in as a querystring - e.g. if the user searches for "clematis" he's navigated to textsearch.aspx?Search=clematis. This all works fine as long as there is something that's called "clematis" (or whatevers being search for) in my database. However, if there are no matches in my database nothing is displayed (except for what's on my master page). I need to be able to display a message which says something to the effect of "Sorry...

Search within search results?
Hi guys I need to create an "advanced search" which will allow the user to narrow down his results. Ideally I'd want him/her to use the same search criteria form for each iteration, with a checkbox called "Search within results" type of thing. Now what I was wondering if there was any existing literature on how to effectively do this. I have tried doing it just through SQL Statements but they are becoming very messy and large. Is it possible to do this by searching the initial dataset, returning dataset #2 and then if a 3rd "search within results" is done apply the search against dataset...

The problem is that I was editing a wiki page and hadn't saved anything when I searched for some information. Thus all my editing disappeared when the results were displayed. Fortunately the wiki had auto-saved the data but next time I might not be so fortunate. Therefore I suggest that search results are presented in a new tab, or that the user gets a warning that a...

[MozillaMail] Open URL in non-mozilla browser?
Greetings, We have deployed Mozilla in our organization as our mail client and as main web browser for many users. All good and fine. But we have a problem. Unfortunately, a selected group of users need to interact with websites that are truly IExplorer only. And most of the URLs that they use come across them through emails. With MozillaMail, all the URLs get open by MozillaBrowser. And I'm not installing Outlook in their machines. I've searched Mozilla and MozillaMail configuration, but I cannot find a place to set the default browser for mail links. I found nothi...
