Hi there!

If "your browser sent a request that this server
could not understand" - and "size of a request
header field exceeds server limit", that strange
request may be a bad or "super-sized" cookie.

Simply delete all your cookies, and everything
should be fine.

While you're erasing your cookies, you should
also be deleting your "temporary internet files"
and "history" to make everything fresh.

Here's how:

Internet Explorer 6:
→ Tools → Internet Options
→ Delete Cookies → OK
→ Delete Files → OK
→ Clear History → Yes
→ OK

For PC, click tools and delete cookies.
For i-mac, click safari right next to the apple symbol, then click on preferences, then click on show cookies, click remove all, then accept remove all. Then quit safari by holding on and clicking the safari timer symbols, now, click on it the safari symbol again and type in www.youtube.com and you won't worry anymore...

Go to Tools. Hit Options. Hit the Privacy button. Press "Show Cookies" in the middle of the page. Go all the way down to Youtube.com and double click on it. Click on the first one. It will tell you something in the space called "Content".in the description. On the server problem on You Tube, look at what is says. It will say stuff like :

EXAMPLE:
(First part)ViSITOR_INFO_1KittyKat (Second part)133bd4455...

you look at each cookie description content and find the 2 that match the first and second part of the error.
Delete those cookies. Refresh the page. IT will work find, AND WILL LET YOU LOG IN.

The reason behind the error:
This is something that happens when a user signs in and out of their youtube account constantly or sees many people's channels nonstop.

Hello my name is glenda and my youtube account is danceluver1212 i dont do anything bad or look up bad thing on youtube but im trying to look at lyrics to all arount by flyleaf and it wont let me see it it...


Hi,

If "your browser sent a request that this server could not understand"
and "size of request header field exceeds server limit", your request
is a bad or oversized cookie. (The same thing is true for "Error 400").

For some very strange reason, it seems 9 of
10 Bad Request messages implicate Firefox.

Simply delete your "Cookies" and everything
will be okay. Don't worry about erasing them;
nothing bad will happen. You won't lose your
internet browser's "Bookmarks" or "Favorites".
The worst thing that could happen is you will
be asked to retype your username/password
when you return to YouTube and some other
websites -- that's all.

As you're dumping your cookies, you should
also erase all your "Temporary Internet Files"
and "History". This will render your computer
totally "fresh" in YouTube's eyes. It would be
best if you shutdown / reboot after doing this:

Internet Explorer 6:
> Tools > Internet Options
> Delete Cookies > OK
> Delete Files > OK
> Clear History > Yes
> OK

Internet Explorer 7:
> Tools > Internet Options > Delete...
> Delete files > Yes
> Delete cookies > OK
> Delete history > OK
> Close (browsing history window)
> OK

Peace,
B

400 bad request




clear the cache and delete the cookies from site(s) that cause problems:
Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Offline Storage (Cache): "Clear Now"
Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"



If that didn't help then try to rename or delete cookies.sqlite and cookies.txt (if it exists) in the profile folder in case there is a problem with the file.

Cant use youtube at all


If this is the same Bad Request problem that's going around for
everyone else, the problem is solved by clearing cookies. BUT,
clearing cookies is a TEMP fix

clear the cache and delete the cookies from site(s) that cause problems:
Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Offline Storage (Cache): "Clear Now"
Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"


If that didn't help then try to rename or delete cookies.sqlite and cookies.txt (if it exists) in the profile folder in case there is a problem with the file.

Youtube will not work


Hello,
This problem would arise due to malware or virus in your browser or when you have large cookies.
Check you tube with other browsers. Run antivirus on the current browser or if you are using firefox go to TOOLS->OPTIONS->PRIVACY->COOKIES and clear youtube's cookie and try to use youtube. Similarly do it for other browsers.


Hope it helps,
Good luck!

Youtube.com 400 bad request


Hello,

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
3. Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: “Show Cookies” (specific problem sites)

If you have tried those resolves and are still not satisfied, try A different route:

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.

(or address: C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\profile folder)

Select cookies.sqlite (and cookies.txt if present) > Delete

Have a good day,
