From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 BuildID: 20010816 and later While on an HHTPS page if an IMG tag exists points another HTTPS server a referrer is not sent. Should be no reason to restrict sending referrer to other HTTPS servers from an HTTPS page.

Go to https://www.geotrust.com under IE(or any older Netscape browser) notice icon on bottom left. 2) Go to https://www.geotrust.com undre newer Netscape browser, icon does not appear. Actual Results: Mozilla sends no referrer. No Icon is displayed. Expected Results: Mozilla should have sent referrer field to the other server. Icon should have been rendered. This problem exists in Mozilla, and Netscape 6.2 and higher. All other browsers behave as expected.
