Thumbs up. Great idea.
Exactly what I wanted. Icons are awesome too.
First off, I really don't see the developer's grounds for omitting development of black- or white-lists (frankly, I can't imagine myself needing a blacklist, only white), other than that initial development led to two distinct projects - I'd still like to see a consolidated addon. Regardless, I'd like to say that both this and RefControl are excellent, light-wight and unobtrusive addons! In fact, (unless a long time ago) this is my first review I could be bothered to write.. because, in summary, this is a great little addon, reeks of back-to-basics quality and goes a long way for users wanting to add another straw to their bundle when attempting to maintain online privacy and the likes. :)
RefControl is the work of a third party, hence the two distinct addons.
Really Really thankful to u. To me this in itself is one of the privacy control addons.
I read the addon description and did got that making any major modification is out of the scope of addon and u wud better use it as a complement for RefControl addon.
Since u wud have excellent understanding of the way Reference thing works, i just have one question. If i set CRB setting to "0" and add some site(which requires reference) in the whitelist of RefControl, will it work. Or can u recommend any such setting. It wud be really helpful to all of us.
Thanks a ton
In my personal RefControl settings, all the sites use the action (see: http://www.stardrifter.org/refcontrol/#help for more details). Except in one particular site where does not work and I have to use the name of the site as custom action.
For the "Default for sites not listed" setting in RefControl, I use (which sends the referer based on the value of "network.http.sendRefererHeader": no referer if 0)
Je trouve qu'il manque juste une option pour qu'un clic gauche sur l'icone puisse par défaut changer temporairement le referer (qu'on ne soit pas obliger de passer par le menu du clic droit).
Thank`s so much for this handy tool- 5*!!.
Perfect. Having used it since 2005, I never actually needed all of RefControl's granularity tho I did have to whitelist many sites (paypal, banks, amazon, etc.). I had to abandon it when it went broken in Firefox 5 (fully documented and emailed to Mr. Abbatiello. Twice.). CRB is an elegant solution. I keep it at zero 99.9% of the time and when I have to refer I hit that nice big icon as needed. THANKS cK-LFC!! Goodbye RefControl.
Now it appears normally on pop-up windows. Nice and thank you for marking it compatible! Νow in my Add-on manager there is uniformity.For the other "bug" need a bit more testing.
Follow up: My mistake for misspeaking on needed option to reset the referer header value to what it was after a given time. For some reason, "edit review" wasn't available immediately after posting review on 5/11/11. And now that I added follow up review, I can see "edit this review." Go figure.
In developer's description, says:"(*): if the referer is disabled (code 0) and you are viewing a page which requires the referer to work correctly: click on "Change referer temporarily to 2" to enable the referer (code 2) during 10000ms (by default). During this time, you can reload your page. After the 10000ms, the referer will be automatically reset to its initial value (code 0)."
It does work, IF.. you R click the status icon, then Options, then Accept. It will revert the setting to what it was before after the mSec value shown, although there is no explanation on the option screen what it will do. Probably should have some indication what clicking Accept actually does.The rest of my review still stands. I'll give it a 4 on this update to my earlier review because I can't edit the 1st review.
cK-LFC, Спасибо за полезное дополнение!!!
I use your add-on very often, it's useful to have a button to stop sendind ref informations :-D
But... Why did you replace the mushroom icon of v0.32 ? The new icon is the same but it's ugly ;-)
I had to download .xpi of v0.32 and v0.40, then open with 7-Zip :
I extracted the three .png files and opened :
I replaced the .png by the ones from v0.32
Then, I manually installed my modded v0.40
Did you have a copyright problem with Nintendo ? ;-)
Thank you for your comment.
No problem with Nintendo at all; I doubt they know about this addon ;-)
Some people complained about the old icons, so I decided to change them. Maybe I'll add an option in the next version so that you can choose between the old and new icons.
Just a temporary replacement of RefControl, and you need a better icon!
This is not meant to be a replacement of RefControl but rather a complement. CRB works with a global Firefox/Thunderbird setting while RefControl controls referer on a per-site basis.
As for the icon, I am not an artist but if you think you can create a better one, use the Support Site to send your creation and I will consider using it instead.
I remember a similar addon that has long since abandoned. Thank you for creating a new version. It's so simple to use.
I tested it by doing a google search for ipswift then clicking the ipswift top result since that site lists your Referer. I had the addon set for zero, and the result for "HTTP Referer" was "none". So your addon appears to work as advertised.
Very nicely designed: Simple, straightforward, and efficient. I can change the setting in one click. One missing feature, from my perspective, is a whitelist: A site I use throughout the day requires the referrers. It's too cumbersome to remember to enable referrers every time I click something on that site. For my purposes, I need CRB to remember to allow referrers in that situation. But that's just my particular needs; it works very well otherwise.
Adding a whitelist will go beyond the scope of this addon.
May I recommend you RefControl (https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/firefox/addon/953/) instead? It allows you to set the referer on a per-site basis.
Было бы лучше если бы кнопка была на statusbar'е, а значок представлял собой букву R в зеленом, оранжевом, красном оформлении. Ну и справка не помешала бы.
