Netscape 4 and Mozilla send the hash part of a URL (the fragment identifier) in the referer. IE and Opera do not. Mozilla is in violation of rfc 2616 . Section 14.36 on referers states "The URI MUST NOT include a fragment". Fragments are the things after a # and aren't actually part of the URI .  http://community.roxen.com/developers/idocs/rfc/rfc2616.html (HTTP/1.1)  http://community.roxen.com/developers/idocs/rfc/rfc2396.html (URIs) Happens with Beonex 0.8 and Mozilla 0.9.9 (from my referer logs) and with 2002 050908 on Windows 98.
confirming using build 2002051208 on Win2k (trunk).
