Kindly find below the solution:

How to clear cookies temporarily:
1. Tools > Clear Private Data > Uncheck all but cookies > Clear Private Data Now or
2. Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Offline Storage (Cache): “Clear Now” or

Right click Start Button > Properties > Select Start menu (not classic) > Apply > Ok


Type %APPDATA% into search box at the bottom of the open start menu.


Goto “roaming” > Mozilla > FireFox > Profiles > should only be one folder left to choose.

How To Fix the 400 Bad Request Error

  1. Check for errors in the URL. The most common reason for a 400 Bad Request error is because the URL was typed wrong or the link that was clicked on points to a URL with a specific kind of mistake in it, like a syntax problem.

    Important: This is most likely the problem if you get a 400 Bad Request error. Specficially, check for extra, typically non-allowed, characters in the URL like a percentage character. While there are perfectly valid uses for something like a % character, you won't often find one in a standard URL.
  2. Clear your browser's cookies, especially if you're getting a Bad Request error with a Google service. Many sites report a 400 error when a cookie it's reading is corrupt or too old.
  3. Clear your DNS cache, which should fix the 400 Bad Request error if it's being caused by outdated DNS records that your computer is storing. Do this in Windows by executingipconfig /flushdns from a Command Prompt window.

    Important: This is not the same as clearing your browser's cache (next thing to try below).
  4. Clear your browser's cache. A cached, but corrupt copy of the web page you're trying to access, but are getting the 400 error on, could be the root of the problem. Clearing your cache is unlikely the fix for the majority of 400 bad Request issues, but it's quick and easy, and so worth trying.
  5. While this is not a common fix, try troubleshooting the problem as a 504 Gateway Timeoutissue instead, even though the problem is being reported as a 400 Bad Request.

    In some relatively rare situations, two servers may take too long to communicate (agateway timeout issue) but will incorrectly, or at least unhelpfully, report the problem to you as a 400 Bad Request.
  6. Contact the website directly that hosts the page. It's possible that the 400 Bad Request error actually isn't anything wrong on your end and it's something they need to fix, in which case letting them know about it would be very helpful.

Hi , One of my Colleague is unble to open the yahoo mail....Please suggest us..we tried this in two different browsers..but no luck... When we click go after Entered the mail.yahoo.com...it shows...


Once at the yahoo website browser pages is initial mean to attaining accessibility into member account. The computer structures of network connectivety effectivesnes affects the requests that is made from yahoo. For example, faster internet connections either with computer connected to ethernets, wireless broadbands are expected to display results as soon as click buttons were requested. Alternately, dial up phone line network connection require susbstancial amount of time untill the entire stream of media would be displayed on the browser at request. Depending on the type of browser, usuall the least number of logos observed on the interface should equate to effectivesness on browser speed or capacity to display soon after request click buttons. Observe the browser interface of materials either as advertisments, graphics, pictures, videos that display on the network browse. Alread said the browser determines how to arrive on the internet. Second, yahoo mail is another display material website also of several materials that takes away from capacity to display. Both an ineffective browser combines with yahoo sites requesting display of personal mail that is likely overloaded with messages usually takes time to display every details. Usually with dial up phone line internet connected computers, such a request hardly displays any results requiing to power shut to attempt an alternate request. The conditon requires to acquire a more effective internet connectivety either ethernet or broadband wireless high speed to attain newtork effectiveness. At which point, that is the solution how the network media least displays on request on functioning computer structures without an observable malfucntion.

Error 999 is a sign that Yahoo's defense is in effect.

"This error appears to be caused by some sort of bandwidth limiting system that Yahoo has put in place on their servers. Once you have exceeded your allotted bandwidth for a specific period of time Yahoo gives you this Error 999 message and doesn't allow you to access the service."
