    Forums no work - 400 Bad Request

    I'm having to endure MS edge to post this, firefox refuses to connect to the hexus forums! This is shown instead:
    400 Bad Request
    Request Header Or Cookie Too Large
    nginx
    I haven't made any changes to my system for months, what could be causing this? Regular browsing is unaffected, and MS edge can find hexus with no trouble.

    Firefox (Android) working perfectly here.

    I can't help with web errors though. That needs someone with developer access.

    I realised something, if it says cookie too large then a clearout of hexus' cookies might work. Success!

    For reference if anyone else comes across this, I just had this same issue with youtube.

    Clearing the cookies resolved it, just a confirmation of the above.

    In Chrome the solution was Settings - Advanced - Privacy and Security - Content Settings - Cookies
    In Search Cookies type the name of the site, and any cookies specifically named for that site will appear - however removing them may lose you site specific settings or login.

    Instructions will vary according to browser.
