I need to temporarily disable 302 redirects in Firefox. How can I do this? I tried going to tools > options > advanced > general > check warn me when sites try to redirect or reload the page, but that didn't work, 302 redirects are still followed. Is there anywhere in about:config that I can disable 302 redirects?

call about:config and set network.http.redirection-limit to 0. But you won't be able to access the moved page.

As I don't have Firefox installed right now, and for others benefit - What does changing this setting as advised do? Would hope that the user would get some warning (rather than a blank page) and / or a offer to load the next redirect. –  user66001 Jan 19 '13 at 21:21

Not specific to Firefox, but you could use the Fiddler debugging proxy, and set a breakpoint on the response. Or use a script like (I guess):
