    Download the http live header for firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3829). Run it then run your metarefresh and check if the referer is passed.

    google referer check and you will get first result stardrifter.org/cg-bin/something

    and make your refresh link to it ;)

    myself i got quite good result with tinyurl no refere @safari/chrome

    dbm generator leaked referer with safari i think ?

    referrer is browser specific, so limiting to firefox only is not a good idea.

    I usually setup a dummy "destination" page on my server, send some of my friends to the page and keep an eye on my servers referrer log

    Here is a very simple tool created by a member here that all you do is put in your link and it spits out 2 php pages that are already setup to DMR and Blank the refer. If the refer is not blank, it will send back to page 1 to try again; therefore, at worst, your visitor is in an infinite loop. If the refer is blank, it will allow the user to be sent to page 2.

    Code:

    Not sure it that will help you, but worth a try. If you are going to the post, make sure you scroll through and read the entire post, there are updates throughout. (Version 2, which allows unlimited links to be rotated, etc.)
