Setting referer problems

Hi Kovid (and others)
I'm looking at customizing a recipe now which requires a particular referer. I've found old code here suggesting something like the following would work.

Code:
    def get_browser(self):
        USER_AGENT = 'Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0'
        br = BasicNewsRecipe.get_browser(self, user_agent=USER_AGENT)
        orig_open_novisit = br.open_novisit
        br.set_debug_http(True)
        br.set_debug_responses(True)
        br.set_debug_redirects(True)
        def my_open_no_visit(url, **kwargs):
                req = mechanize.Request(url, headers = {'Referer':'https://www.facebook.com/'})
                return orig_open_novisit(req)
        br.open_novisit = my_open_no_visit
        return br
However when running this the logs show every other header but referer set. Is there some other change that's happened that would invalidate this?
Code:
1% Fetching feeds...
send: 'GET /XXXXXXXXXX HTTP/1.1\r\nAccept-Encoding: identity\r\nUser-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0\r\nHost: www.XXXXXXXX.com\r\nAccept: */*\r\nConnection: close\r\n\r\n'

br.addheaders += [('Referer', 'whatever')]
