Comment (by arthuredelstein):

 Yes, this was an error on my part in the Firefox patch. It should have
 been "network.http.referer.hideOnionSource" in the whole patch. I will
 post a fixup here and also submit it to Mozilla. Sorry for the mistake.

 In the Mozilla patch, the decision was to hide the referrer, rather than
 spoofing it, when leaving an onion source.
