 A security problem?
 I don't know but thought you might like to see this.

 Karl Fogle on redbean.com the writer of onetime the program for
 implementation on onetime pad encryption noted that Firefox sends link
 following in headers.
 He also wrote an article on it which you can read at his site:
 I think it's a good idea he poses and I have changed the header policy on
 all my mozilla products,"including Tor."
 In "about:config"
 Changed,"Network.http.sendRefererHeader to 0 instead of the default 2"
 Am I just being paranoid or is this a real problem?
