    I only enabled it for a fairly short time and in that time it didn't work for me and it didn't work for all the submissions that came in but that was only a few.

    no idea.

    can u look in ur server logs?

    the logs show the referrer. if the referrer is in there but not getting thru to php, then its a fault in php

    if the referrer is not in the logs, its a fault in the web server software

    Surely it has nothing to do with the web server or PHP configuration if it works fine in Firefox every time?

    You have to use a cookie to store the initial referer. You can use a ready made solution like this one:
