Polipo conflicts with smart referer spoofing
I am not sure whether this really is a Torbutton bug but it seems at least not obvious to the user that Polipo prevents Torbutton's smart referer spoofing. We have implemented a test for it in our anon test.
Steps to reproduce:
- Use Torbutton with Polipo activated (that's the default option in Torbutton as far as I can see) and check the referer functionality on http://ip-check.info. You'll see a orange field in the row with the referer check results and a warning.
- Use Torbutton with Polipo deactivated and run the same anon test. You'll get a green field and the message that your smart referer spoofing works as expected.
Expected results: The smart referer spoofing should work always if it is selected as the user's choice of referer spoofing.
