Is there any way to use a script to remove third-party referrers from a browser's request headers? There is no extension for Safari that I could find that could do that, so I was looking for a script for Tampermonkey. I was unsuccessful. Can a script not do that? The script would have to deal not only with anchors, but also with links and scripts.

This is very old but might help: Automatically Disable HTTP referrer

Also very old but still works well. See if you can find a copy of CookieCop 2.1, originally distributed by PC Magazine.

I've used it on every PC since I first got it to kill off all kinds of annoyances.

I see CookieCop 2.2 out there from PCMag for $8 if you want to go that route. The version I got was free before they started charging.

Both of you are referring to Windows. I am using MacOS. The page listing the browsers and firewalls seems to be years old, given the versions and names of software listed. I gather that you do not think it possible to remove referrers with scripts handled by extensions?

Googled for you and the question was asked twice 11 years ago in different Mac forums. No answer except Adblock.

Since when can Adblock do anything to request headers?

It can't. I was just emphasizing that the only answer was inane.
