nor do I get ads related to anything I type, (after disabling other addons), since installing it, eg. as Renegade found here.

So, Ren, you like balding Filipinas?

Well, after three weeks of running Change Referer Button and RefControl my Collusion graph looks like this:

Now that's impressive. Thanks. Installing them now...

I originally had CRB set to send no referer and then added sites where they needed a referer into RefControl, (which was set to the default of Normal - Send Referer), but then I changed RefControl to Forge and CRB to set the referer as the destination, (Mode 1, equivalent to RefControl Forge mode).

That seems to make all the sites that I've visited happy and I don't need any site specific settings in RefControl, (at least for any sites I've frequented so far).

I also run ProxyTool so that when/if I hit a site that requires something more, I'll have the info available to input into RefControl.

@4wd: Ah, that's brilliant. Thanks again. Didn't know about Proxy Tool. Those certainly seem to be nifty tools. I'm just getting the hang of them.
That referrer faking is redolent of how I used to use JunkBuster. I didn't know there were tools to duplicate that kind of functionality.

Thanks to @4wd's suggestions/tips, my Collusion diagram now looks all black...like this:

I also spotted this tip today on http://fixtracking.com/ - might be useful (I have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware with real-time checking ON, so I do not need the Firefox defaults ticked ON as well):
