Image from store Browser Redirection Extension
Description from store This extension allows redirection of webpages in Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops sessions. The extension enables two features, namely, Browser Content Redirection and Bidirectional URL Redirection. BROWSER CONTENT REDIRECTION: Redirects Webpages from a browser running on the virtual desktop to the Citrix Workspace App embedded browser running on the client device. Browser Content Redirection prevents the execution/rendering of whitelisted web pages in the virtual desktop, creating a corresponding browser instantiated by Citrix Workspace app that will be responsible for rendering the URL locally on the user’s device. System Requirements: Browser Content Redirection for Chrome requires Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops 1808 or higher and Citrix Workspace app for Windows 1809 or higher, and Citrix Receiver for Linux 13.9 or higher. This extension should be installed in the supported browsers running in the virtual desktop, and no installation is required on user’s client device. For further assistance, contact your IT Help Desk.

It can also redirect webpages from the browser on the client device to the browser running on the virtual session. Administrators can configure the list of URLs to be redirected via server and client policies. Host policies are set in Citrix Studio, and client polices are set via the Citrix Workspace app Group Policy Object administration template. System Requirements: Bidirectional URL redirection requires Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops 2106 or higher, and Citrix Workspace App for Windows 2106 or higher. Browser Redirection Extension version 5.0 or higher is required to be installed in the supported browsers running in the virtual desktop and on the user’s client device. On client device installs, error “WebSocket connection to 'wss://' failed” would be logged in the extension console. This is only informational and does not affect the extension’s functionality in any way.

  • (2020-08-13) Elsa Pingeot: Works like a charm.
  • (2020-07-15) Ryan Gallier: Don't listen to these to troglodytes with the 1 star reviews. This is a fantastic extension that works amazingly when you're utilizing Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (XenDesktop/XenApp) It allows you to run 1080p and 4k videos full screen in an ICA session, seamlessly by redirecting the processing to your local PC. There's no menu to add URLs so morons like F M don't break your browser.

    Dear Sirs, we have provided your extension to our users, but we are not using at the moment. After your update to 4.2 we have some heavy problems with internal websites and an sso login and with image scaling and so on. We removed your extension. Best regards, Andreas
  • (2021-04-28, v:4.1) Ben Matthews: Visiting specific website crashes Citrix Workspace
    Hi, We've discovered that visiting the website: https://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/ crashes Citrix Workspace when using the Browser Content Redirection extension. We've tested this by opening the URL in Incognito mode, which works. If we set the extension to work in Incognito and visit the website again, we get kicked out of Citrix. This points to an issue with the extension. Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks Ben
  • (2020-08-26, v:3.0.3) W Benes: Porting to Firefox
    It would be really appreciated if this webextension could be ported to a Firefox Add-on too. According to http://extensiontest.com/ this shouldn't be much of a problem, since Firefox now supports webextensions. If you need help, please contact Mozilla through Bugzilla and they will be happy to assist.
  • (2019-02-13, v:1.0) Peter Lewis: Will this be supported on the ChromeOS Workspace App too?
    Will this be supported on the ChromeOS Citrix Workspace app, as it could be handy for Hangouts / Meet, etc.
