Mozilla Firefox before 18.104.22.168 and SeaMonkey before 1.1.7 sets the
Referer header to the window or frame in which script is running,
instead of the address of the content that initiated the script, which
allows remote attackers to spoof HTTP Referer headers and bypass
Referer-based CSRF protection schemes by setting window.location and
using a modal alert dialog that causes the wrong Referer to be sent.
