Another thing to consider with Hawaiian_Starman's advice is that the Cookies.plist file is a shared resource. Many other internet-enabled applications make use of it and it's possible that if you moved it while other apps are running, they will recreate the cookie file with the potentially suspect data.
So before moving it, make sure to quit all applications (and all Dashboard widgets if any are running) just to be 100% sure.
This is the first series of replies that gave me some hope. This error of
Sorry, Bad Request
Size of a request header field exceeds server limit
Comes up in numerous places. I am getting for two days now in Yahoo Mail. While I can get rid of it temporarily by cleaning cache, removing cookies, that is only a temporary fix. I even rebuilt the Leopard and that does nothing. So when I so this string I did the cookies PLIST move to desktop as instructed, but this DOES NOT get rid of the problem.
So I am hear to report that the problem still exists. It also shows up other places - YouTube, Search routines on other sites form what I have read.
Can anyone help as I can t uyse Yahoo Mail under Safari!!!! Ridiculous!!!
Thanks in advance
The question is why is this happening at all in Safari? I have just given up on several sites with blogs because this eventually happenes using Safari - Firefox in never happens.
Its seems to be mostly on places that allow you to vote on things, thumbs up, thumbs, down, that sort of thing. I seems to keep adding your votes to a single cookie and eventually starts sending one the blog software can't handle.
Why does only Safari have trouble trimming the information down to size?
