Visitor Group referrer not working

Vote:
 

I think the Referrer criterion might not be working for the Visitor Groups. We have the problem in our CMS, but I also tested on the Alloy sample site and the same issue occurs.

Essentially, wrap a block of content in a 'Personalize' container and choose a Visitor Group that uses a referrer check and the URL doesn't match.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Visit http://alloy.episerverdemo.com
  • At the time of writing, the carousel block on the homepage is only shown to referrers from twitter.com
  • Either change your referrer or use Dev Tools to insert a link on twitter.com to http://alloy.episerverdemo.com
  • After landing on the Alloy site, from Twitter, the carousel block still doesn't show

The criterion is currently setup as 'URL' 'Starts with' 'https://twitter.com'.

Am I doing something wrong here or is it a bug?

I'm currently experiencing the same problem. Using the Visitor Group Statistics gadget on the dashboard also shows no hits for the visitor group using this criterion.

Same here, seems that this  very basic criteria does not work, we are running 9.12 version. Didn't find any bug from bug list related to this. Others, any news?
