Just found some more info about this. Apparently FireFox, my

OK, I'm answering my own question again. It turns out that I had the
"disable referrers" set in the Web Developer extension. Now I don't
know if FireFox disables referrers by default, but I thought it
important to mention why I was having trouble with the Comments
extension. So anybody running Firefox and having a problem with the
redirect_to :back, check that you are allowing referrers.
That is all. Everything else about the Comments extension seems to
work perfectly with Radiant 0.7.1.
Nate, not that I want to rain on your parade, but I *think* IE cannot
be relied upon to send the referrer back to the server (depending on
settings/versions/who-knows-what it may think it's a security risk).
It's been a while since I looked into it, though.
When I'm handling logins and then redirects-on-success, I track the
last-visited-page in the session (excluding POSTs, session-related
pages, etc), and redirect to that instead, rather than using
HTTP_REFERER. Not sure if that's any help in your situation though.
And all that said, it really has been a few years since I hit this
problem with IE. I could be wrong.
