François Marier wrote a good overview of the various tweaks that can be enabled in recent Firefox to protect Referer leaks.

It seems there's again a number of site-breakage tradeoff to be made, so I wonder if it would made sense to enable more painful protections when the security slider is set higher.

Marking this as a duplicate of #17228. See especially comment:3:ticket:17228 for a proposol how to adjust Referer settings depending on security slider level. However, my comment:4:ticket:17228 still stands.
