But it's still fairly easy to detect as the referrer
is invalid most of the time.

I think the best solution is to block the referrer
if the host has changed, but to let it pass otherwise.
It's not undetectable either, but at least it will
never result in invalid referrers.

I don't think Firefox itself can do that, but
both Polipo and Privoxy can (not for HTTPS of course).
