Hi Guys
i've ran this browser test on pcflank.com and i got this result
" Referrer check
Danger! While visiting web sites your browser reveals private information (called 'referrer') about previous sites you have visited.

Recommendation
We advise you to get personal firewall software. If you already have a firewall program adjust it to block the distribution of such information (referrer). "
well as the advise says get a firewall, lol i'm already running KIS, anti hacker is on training mode, web AV is on High and i use both Firefox and Mozilla, so is there a way to adjust these settings in KIS so to stop browser revealing personal info as according to them it is firewall's headache, if not then anyone which one of the settings to adjust in browser?

there's no setting in kis for that, but you can configure firefox to block referers with this plugin: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1999/

but first you should read about what referers are: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Referer

careful when you block referers... might cause you problems when accessing most sites...
