Cannot log into launchpad with referreres disabled in browser

Asked by Martin Pohlack on 2012-05-19

I have disabled referrer headers in my browser (firefox) using this setting:

network.http.sendRefererHeader = 0

Instead of logging me into launchpad:

https://login.launchpad.net/

I get a page with: Ihre Seite war abgestanden. (Your page was stale?).

Logging in works when I enable referrers in my browser.

Referer is expected. There are addons available to allow referer on certain pages.
