Link to BridgeDB on Obfsproxy page doesn't work exactly as expected

Description

https://www.torproject.org/projects/obfsproxy.html.en#morebridges redirects to a broken link, https://bridges.torproject.org/?transport=obfs2 instead of https://bridges.torproject.org/bridges?transport=obfs2. Furthermore, it should redirect to https://bridges.torproject.org/bridges?transport=obfs3 in order for users to receive bridges for the newer transport.
Also, https://bridges.torproject.org/ should also advertise IPv6 and obfs3 bridges on the front page, just like the old bridges.torproject.org did.

This should actually be two different tickets, one for the obfsproxy page and the other for bridgedb. Luckily we already have #9127 for the latter request, so I'll assign this to Website so that link will be fixed.

Summary: Bridge advertising and broken linksLink to BridgeDB on Obfsproxy page doesn't work exactly as expected

So the link on the obfsproxy page is https://bridges.torproject.org/?transport=obfs2

I see two immediate options. 1) The Obfsproxy should link to https://bridges.torproject.org/bridges?transport=obfs2 and bypass the front page. If they were already on the obfsproxy webpage, then they hopefully/probably(?) have the PTTBB. Can we safely assume this? 2) Hack BridgeDB to remember GET requests, but I don't like this idea much.

Depending on what we decide in #9127 will likely create more options for what we can do on the obfsproxy page.
