I frequently get this message, when I try to open the forum, display a question or post an answer:
Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit.
Cookie: X_MW_DOMAIN=mathworks.com; MW_AL=5c9a...
The problem appears in about 50% of the cases and I see it since about 32 hours. I have to click on the "Save" button twice most of the times, before something happens, and about half of my answers (and another version of this question) vanish.
Is this known already?
No products are associated with this question.
We are investigating the Bad Request issue that Jan reported--other users have experienced similar problems in other areas of MathWorks.com.
Clearing your browser cookies should resolve the problem, though in some cases (such as Jan's) this fix is only temporary.
I will update this Answer when we resolve the problem.
Sorry for the inconvenience!
While the forum access is still slow, I do not get the errors anymore after deleting the MathWorks cookies.
So let me fix this, such that others can find this solution:
If you have connection problems in the forum, try to delete the MathWorks cookies. Afterwards you have to login again, so be sure that your password is available.
It would be nice, if the forum admins react to meta questions.
