Description

14 years ago
Since there are quite some pages linking to the pages on texturizer.net,
permanent redirects should be set up.

<http://www.google.com/search?q=link:http://texturizer.net/mozilla/jp/firefox/>
<http://www.google.com/search?q=link:http://texturizer.net/firefox/index.html>

And there are probably more examples. I also think, although it makes it a bit
more complicated that for example <http://texturizer.net/firefox/keyboard.html>
should redirect to <http://www.mozilla.org/support/firefox/keyboard> (without
the extension) and <texturizer.net/firefox/bla> probably shouldn't redirect at all.

This can't be fixed until bug 260737 is fixed, but some work for the Firefox
pages can certainly be done.

I will fix bug 260737, then this one.

As I recall using a 403 is the right way (since search engines know the link is
dead when indexing, and know where the new URL is).

For an apache htaccess file:

Redirect Permanent /old/file.shtml http://new.url/foo/bar

403 is Forbidden, actually. The syntax you gave is correct, though. (301,
permanent redirect.)
Yes, correct.

(was working with it not to long ago too).

Kohei, you should not point to the index file of a directory directly. Link to /.

I forgot to redirect ja-JP themes/extensions section to Mozilla Update.
Please update your .htaccess.
I removed "os=Windows". Thanks.
