Invalid/missing HTTP referer JadedPony 14577

I was unable to post on this site for a while until I figured out what was causing the error. There is an extension called Fix Url Links Redirect for Chrome which has an option box that lets you block your HTTP referer header. It's just one of the features you use to not be tracked online. If you have this enabled you can not post on this site at all. You might want to fix that since most browsers are moving to the new referer= css function, soon when people start updating their browsers they are going to be unable to post at all.

The referrer header is used here to protect from csrf attacks in posting. No common browser exposes the option to disable referrer headers in the UI, so making posting not require the header isn't a high priority for me.

See if you can set your browser extension to only disable cross-site referrer headers or to not disable referrer headers on form posting instead.

Disabling that feature of that addon fixed it. I'm wonderful now. I just wanted to make a post in case someone else had the same problem.

Honestly, I don't care if sites know what sites I come from to get there. It's not like I'm going to HookersandBlow.com or something.

I'm not sure why hiding where you clicked from would even be a feature you would need.
