why does this work in Firefox but not in IE?
if (document.referrer == "http://mysite.com/group.html")
document.write('You came from group');

Some things don't work quite right in browsers when working within file system (ie file: protocol). It took me a while to find this out for the onerror event for images in Moz.
If you have a local webserver, try getting the document.referrer property, and it will magically appear.

Put the script inside a page being served from a webserver and it will work in IE too.

Don't forget that the referrer string can not be trusted. A user can alter what, if any, data they send as the referrer.
