I have just discovered that setting network.http.sendRefererHeader to 0 in firefox's about:config causes ubuntu-SSO to stop working, meaning I cannot log into any ubuntu-sso sites like launchpad or ask ubuntu.

Is there any way to use Ubuntu SSO without sending out https referers to every site I visit?
