Follow-up from bug 1201059:

> I can't imagine it would handle 301 correctly. And we have discovered during

> Can we do so here?

My first intention was to manually handle the redirects and from there on just use the new URL. However I am a bit afraid of all those public WiFi redirectors. We should avoid locking ourselves out.
