In Magento 1.9 I was facing this issue on all the product listing pages as the links generated were like (catalog/product/view/id/123), which I have managed to change to product url by setting "Use Web Server Rewrites" to yes.

But now I need if someone enters the url (catalog/product/view/id/123) then it should also be redirected to (product-name.html)


I was finally able to achieve this by creating an observer for event http_response_send_before

Following is the code in observer:

$currentUrl = Mage::helper('core/url')->getCurrentUrl();
if (strpos($currentUrl, 'catalog/product/view/id') !== false) {
    $params = Mage::app()->getRequest()->getParams();
    $seo_url = Mage::getBaseUrl().Mage::getResourceSingleton('catalog/product')->getAttributeRawValue($params['id'], 'url_key', Mage::app()->getStore());

Hope this will be helpful for others.
