  • Works well, I have only one problem: why the hell it isn't included in Firefox's core, enabled by default?
  • The plugin should state more exactly what it does.
    It seems like it sends the referrer only when requesting resources with the same domain name. AND it considers SUB-DOMAINS to be the SAME domain.

    I'm using Firefox 11.0 on Mac OS X 10.8 (dev preview 2) and the plugin seems to work well.

    Thanks a lot!

    update: Thanks for your response, meh! I think that's a good way to handle it.

    About subdomains being considered the same domain, I added an option called `extensions.smart-referer.strict` that when disabled will take as same domain the subdomains, by default it will take subdomains as different domains.

    It will be there as soon as the reviewers review it.
  • Perfect idea because it requires no settings and works out of the box.
  • Great addon! Works perfectly and requires no fiddling to get it to work :D. I would love to see this move out of experimental.
  • good to go so far - can test here...

    maybe needs a toolbar button to toggle state?

    i miss another ext which, in addition to the referrer, could also spoof the UA. would be nice to see a more comprehensive header manipulation tool that worked on a per-domain basis

    About the state toggling: I made the extension restartless, so you can use the already present functionality in the add-on manager.

    It will be there as soon as the new version is reviewed.
  • Works fine up to now (a few hours). Testing available at http://www.stardrifter.org/cgi-bin/ref.cgi
