 I've recreated this bug on a custom config of Firefox 7.

 If [http://kb.mozillazine.org/Network.http.sendRefererHeader
 network.http.sendRefererHeader] in Firefox is set to zero,
 wp_get_referer() is always false, which gives the WSOD blank page after
 login or any other page that requires wp_get_referer() when using
 bp_core_redirect().  Another example can be found when a user
 friends-actions.php#L75 adds a friend].

 This bug basically exists for all versions of Firefox.

 Do you think it's wise to check if wp_get_referer() is empty?  If so,
 redirect to a valid page?  It's a pretty edge case scenario for people who
 like to tweak Firefox.

 I'm going to reopen this ticket, but feel free to close if it's too minor.
