How to avoid referrers..

..through firewall  i.e. what is the correct instruction to put into firewall rules?

All checks of system security are positive including exploit test but both Firefox 19 and I.E.10 accept referrers as per image below

We are using Windows Firewall in Internet Security 2013, so I don't think this is possible through firewall.

 

With Internet Explorer 10 I didn't find any possibility to easily remove them.

 

In Firefox:

So you can block it in Firefox, but generally it is not recommended as some web sites

may stop working.
