In order to be able to see a client's workflow tool (SDL TMS) that's based on popups, I had to mess with my security settings of Netscape 8.1 and diverse firewall popup blocker settings (Windows XP Pro, SP2, CA Firewall).

However, now I get an error message when I try to access

Bad Request
Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.
Size of a request header field exceeds server limit.

Cookie: [...]


Apache/1.3.37 Server at Port 80

Although I think I have returned all settings to their previous state, I still get that error message. Does anybody have any idea what might be causing it and/or how I can fix it?

Any help appreciated!!
