In Privoxy 3.0.8 and later, it's:


Using "/", as Referer headers send to "normal" URLs
while leaving .exit URLs can leak the exit notation
as well (if they aren't blocked anyway).

While it's a bit more work than simply adding the exit notation
in the browser, you can have Privoxy add it behind the browser's back.
Another advantage is that it works for SSL as well (no certificate warnings).

For an example have a look at:
(note that the fingerprint has changed, though)

And in case you aren't using Privoxy, there's always MapAddress.
Quoting tor(1):
| MapAddress address newaddress
