Firefox “So you browse hundreds and thousands of websites daily, but do you know that when you open up a website from any external link, HTTP referrer information headers are being passed to that site.

Suppose you got a link in your email by your friend pointing you to some website. When you open up that link, you are passing the information that from where have you been redirected from. So if you are using your office mail account, that website will have information that you came to them from your office mail which may also  show the name of the company you work for.

In Firefox you can disable and block the passing of HTTP Referrer headers –

Open Firefox, and on address bar type about:config and press enter.
Look for config key network.http.sendRefererHeader and double click on it and change the value from 2 to 0.

So next time you open up a link, it’ll block the referrer URL to be passed to that website.”

Once you have completed the steps above test it out at http://www.whatismyreferer.com
