As noted in this answer from the same question you linked, you can use network.http.redirection-limit to block redirects. Start by setting it to 0 (instead of 1 as in the linked answer). It will will have the effects of blocking all redirects and even accessing any site.

Then increasing with the value will allow depending on the site to allow redirects (or clicking "Try again" when the redict was blocked).
