To add a new redirect, right click either anywhere on a page and click Add current url to Redirector or right click on a link and click Add link url to Redirector. You can also add urls from ToolsRedirectorAdd... but then you won't get the example url filled in.

To edit and delete redirects, goto ToolsRedirector, or choose Options on the Addons window.

To disable Redirector temporarily, click on the R that's in your statusbar. Right-clicking the icon opens the Redirector options window.
