Disable HTTP Referer at Startup

Author(s):



Development background:

I usually disabled "Send HTTP Referer Header" for protect privacy reason.

But sometimes, "Send HTTP Referer Header" was required for Web site authentication.
So, I enabled it and disabled it after leave such Web site.

Unfortunately, sometimes I forgot disable it and made privacy weakness.

Then I thought I would like to be able to disable "Send HTTP Referer Header" when start Firefox.

This is why I developed this addon.
