Gerhard Schmidt, I see a banner appearing on your URL. So I guess it's working.
I'm using the 2000111704 build on Windows 98.

Thats because we have deaktivated referrer check for user-agent matching
*gecko* because some of our customers complained about Netscape 6 not
working also.

But this is only a Temporary Fix.

Well can you setup a test case we can work on? Otherwise we cant fix the problem.
I've set up a testcase for this at
http://www.zbarsky.org/~bzbarsky/moztest/referer.html

Indeed, Mozilla does not pass a Referer: header to the frames in a frameset
(linux build 2000-12-05-08).  NS 4.x does.
