- by PatheticCockroach, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5I installed this as a replacement to RefControl, because of that WebExtension mess.
I just installed it, so I'll have to test it longer to be sure, but so far I like the concept of only forging cross-doman requests: that seems like a smart way to avoid most of the trouble that could be caused by forging everything like I used to.
- by Firefox user 13471002, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5Great extension to protect our privacy, only one thing is missing for it to be a full WebExtension replacement for the legacy extension RefControl : please add an option for it to work on the same domain too !
- by gxbfvq37809, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5the setting is strange and hard to understand use, for example how to set a site "*.google.com" reffer to "yahoo.com".
please make that easy to use like RefControl.
- by Ythan, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Thanks for finally adding e10s / WebExtension support. I realized how much I missed this addon when I was relying on Firefox's built-in referrer controls. Some sites (like photos.google.com > youtube.com) simply do not work without a valid referrer. This addon lets my protect my privacy and still use all the sites I want. Keep up the great work! :)
- by Firefox user 6630099, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5I like the fact the extension allows you to treat subdomains as different domains, and to configure how the referer should be set (same than URL or direct hit). The project is on GitHub: https://github.com/meh/smart-referer
- by Firefox user 11434556, 5 years agoRated 3 out of 5FlickR recently started preventing me logging in. Disabling Smart Referer resolved the issue. It's a shame, as it's been a reassuring add-on, but now unusable for me.
