- by Firefox user 14267904, 2 years agoRated 2 out of 5This doesn't have the "Forge" option that RefControl had, which sends the root of the site being visited as the Referer. "Prune" is close but it will send https://r.search.yahoo.com as the Referer when visiting https://www.whatismyreferer.com/ for example. "Forge" would send https://www.whatismyreferer.com/ instead. Please add a "Forge" option. Thanks
Developer responseposted a year agoI've created an enhancement issue (https://github.com/airtower-luna/referer-mod/issues/3) for a "forge"-like feature, you're welcome to comment on whether that'd be what you need.
- by WilliamAHuston, 2 years agoRated 2 out of 5This add-on used to work for me. Now that I've upgraded to Quantum (v60.0, 64 bit, Win7) it is no longer working.
I am trying to use the "replace" action. I have confirmed using LiveHeaders that when I visit the target domain, there is NO "Referer:" directive at all. It's not wrong, it's missing. WilliamAHuston@gmail.com thanks.
- by Roger Dodger, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5I am a great fan of RefControl and want to install this addon as a replacement. However, it reports that I am using Firefox 52.0 despite the fact that I am using 64 bit Firefox 57.0 on Linux Minr 18.2!!
- by Rick, 2 years agoRated 4 out of 5Works well so far. I'd love a toolbar icon to access a settings gui that showed the current referrer and the addition of some RefControl features, especially "Block (3rd Party)".
- by Firefox user 13262486, 2 years agoRated 3 out of 5Thanks for this replacement but can be improved. Parity of RefControl options, for example: own addon page or popup gui which can easily control options such as allow referrer for same domain only, block referrer/block only 3rd party referrers, bar showing current page referrer etc.
