Your best bet is to get the Modify HTTP Headers. Now this will not modify the referer dynamically based on the site domain. So you now have these options:

  1. Ask for this feature
  2. Modify the existing exentension
  3. OR, compeletly different, find a proxy that offers this feature, run it locally, point firefox to it, and viola, your referer has changed on your outbound call to the intended server.
