For a while now, links to the second edition of TRPL have shown a message saying that the link is outdated, and that you should refer to the new edition.
However, there are two problems here. 
1. The (new) link that you are asked to open, just goes to the Foreword page each time, regardless of what page you were trying to view on the old book.
2. Searching for a topic in the book, example Advanced Traits, always yields the outdated URL.

This extension takes the outdated book, and tries to find out what EXACT page in the new book you should actually be on. Then, it redirects you there.

So, for example, if you were on the page for Advanced Traits on the outdated book, you would automatically be redirected to Advanced Traits on the new book.
Risk impact

TRPL Redirect requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

TRPL Redirect has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
