Problem with the Forums and Firefox?

is anyone else getting this error message when trying to Sign in on the forums?

Bad Request - Request Too Long

HTTP Error 400. The size of the request headers is too long.

It's the same with Google Chrome.

To fix it (temporarily) you need to clear your browser cache FULLY.  Works for about 3 days , until it needs doing again.

yes empty ur cookies and make sure firefox updates :)

It's not likely to be fixed for a while, I'm on the pre-beta of firefox 6, and it does the same.

This place is fubar. They need to reboot the old xbox.com.

The whole xbox.com site seems to be much less compatible with firefox 5.0 than it used to be, for example I've started to realise that the marketplace doesn't work with it either (doesn't show that you've purchased things, just gives you the options to buy them again)

I've not updated to the latest firefox and don't have the sign in problem, pages do take forever to load though

This was happening a lot for me last week. The trick above worked for me but it was annoying to clear ALL cookies just to view one site.

 

So I added a cookie exception for forums.xbox.com.

 

Go to to Tools \ Options \ Privacy,

Set Firefox to Use custom settings, then next to Cookies, click exceptions,and add forums.xbox.com and set to Keep for session only.

 

This has solved the issue for me and I haven't had the error since.

i never cleared all the cookies.

goto tools/options/privacy

then click the "show cookies" button and just select the ones you want to remove.

i.e.

xbox.com

worked for me...

 

 

Yeah good shout Yungstar, I found that after about the 3rd time, but thats when I also found the exceptions bit too, and thats worked a treat so far - no further action required!

This place is god awful, why did they change it to this junk?
