HTTP REFERER not implemented
This page take to a Perl script that let site's visitors to send URLs via email. This script (called birdcast.pl) has a nice feature that prevent "parasitic" use (i.e. called form offsite). For example, in this case script works only if it's called from domain http://www.numerozero.com or http://numerozero.com. When I try to submit data to this script it say me that can't complete my request because it appear that is called from a non valid URL (not numerozero.com). When I try with other browser, Netscape 4.6 or IE, script works without problems. I'm using Windows 95 4.00.950.b and apprunner build ID 1999071417
Reassigning to Eric.
The problem will be because Mozilla currently doesn't send details of the referring page (HTTP_REFERER) therefore the script will not know where the script was called from.
Summary: form does not accept data with apprunner → HTTP REFERER not implemented.
This is likely something that needs to be implemented in the webshell or some similarly scoped object. CC'ing people who might be interested.
