I'm overwhelmed by the carefulness regarding Firefox’s approach to privacy.
To be more specific:
Until now I've shortly tested FF twice since its apparition.
In order to disable/enable the referrer for HTTP (+ HTTPS) users had two options:
1. To download an extension to perform such a basic setting
2. Fiddling with about:config where the search result for referer is rather disguised since for HTTP it is written 'referer' while for HTTPS 'referrer'.
Good luck for the average user
Obviously the referrer string has nothing to do with privacy, from FF's developers perspective at least
I'm wondering if this is still the case with newer releases since I really don't feel like testing a third time.
