 Currently the Tor Browser's Referrer is left empty. The problem with this
 is it breaks navigation for some webpages, ie, you can't go back to the
 previous webpage using the Browser's Back button. Instead, the Referrer
 should be set to the website being navigated to. So, for example, if a
 person clicks on a link for the website "www.xyz.com" the Referrer should
 be set to "www.xyz.com." The same thing for websites typed into the URL
 bar. This will prevent navigation between webpages from becoming broken.
