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.

Nope, I'm not running any filter software. Other browsers on my computer also will not leave a referring address and I have no explanation for this. It's very odd.

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