I recently downloaded MSIE 6 and am unable to leave a referring address. This really wouldn't be a problem but I happen to be writing a logging script and it's hard for me to troubleshoot the script without the ability of leaving a referring address. I also can't seem to leave a referring address with other browsers (even Sam Spade) now. Anyone else notice the same "problem" with MSIE 6?

Other browsers work ok?

That sure sounds strange. No firewall? Not connecting to a proxy? Beat's me on this one.
