I have typed http://example.com/load/ in my browser window and pressed "ENTER" key. Now on press of enter this website redirects me to http://example.com/load/1/ and then http://example.com/load/2/ and then I finally landed on this url http://example.com/load/3/.

These redirection happens at website end, I am not aware where I am going. But I finally landed on this url: http://example.com/load/3/

I want to track where all my browser gone all urls, I am not seeing it in my history as its redirect at website end. Is there any firefox addon or some toll which can track this for me?

I am not sure where to ask this question, so asking it here, moderators please check!

  1. Install FireBug 1
  2. open firebug
  3. goto the net tab
  4. click on the "persist" option
  5. enter your url
  6. watch the list of urls fetched change. you'll see something like this for your example:

    http://example.com/load/ 302 Moved temporarily
    http://example.com/load/1/ 302 Moved temporarily
    http://example.com/load/2/ 302 Moved temporarily
    http://example.com/load/3/ 200 OK

If you select one of those and open the twisty next to ti you can get the headers which will show you exactly what was requested and what the response was. IN particular you want to look at the Location header on the responses, as that tells your browser what to go load instead.


  1. Or use any other form of devtools for your favorite browser.

If you don't want to install firebug, then you can use the Redirect Tracing Tool
