Description

For example, clicking a link on Facebook loads their redirect service, which then loads the URL. The resulting URL includes `fbclid=`, but it is not stripped out because the URL sanitation method is not called when a redirect is engaged.

Given WebView's limitations, it might not be possible to fix this until Privacy WebView. But it should be possible to at least process the final URL before it is displayed in the URL Box (so that shared URLs do not contain these items).

The URLs are now sanitized before being displayed in the URL text box. But the unsanitized URLs are still being loaded on redirects.
