Jonas from the MozillaZine forums contacted me via email today to let me know that he was using my blog's "Recent Referrals" feature as a guinea pig of sorts for showcasing a Mozilla Firefox bug.

Using the repro steps he provided in his forum post on the subject, I was able to confirm that there is a referral problem present when clicking on the URI provided in the information associated with an installed theme.

I loaded up starwars.com in the active tab; clicked on Tools, Options, Themes; and then clicked on the link to my website (in the information for GrayModern) and sure enough, starwars.com showed up at the top of my "Recent Referrals" list.

Interesting find (and good catch, Jonas)!
