 As per zyan's reply here
 (https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/9623#comment:23), I've
 created a new ticket.

 It is definitely worth considering disabling referrer / trackers within
 TBB as it seems the security concerns (trackability/linkability) are
 [much] greater than the possiblity of occasional breakage on a few

 Possibly disable + include a way to toggle referrer on for particular site
 temporarily? Just an idea, needs to be examined for what would be the best
