    On Firefox, occasionally GBAtemp gives me a "400 Bad Request" error and I can only get around it by closing it and reopening Firefox. It doesn't seem like a regular thing; sometimes it just happens. Just had it now, in fact. This is the only site that gets it though.

    Yeah I get that too sometimes
    On Chrome too, but way less than on FireFox

    I don't know what it is, but it's gone if you change/restart browsers.

    hmm... I never get those...
    though you should know, every hour the services restart (which can mean downtime for about 5 to 10 seconds)

    the problem could come from broken cookie data, try removing your cookie next time this happens?
    if removing the cookie does the trick, then i'll try to find a fix server-side.

    Next time it happens I'll try resetting cookie data. I'll tell you if it works.

    Just had it and clearing the Cookies instantly solved it (as well as logging me out [​IMG])

    I've had it a few times. Normally reloading fix's it but if it doesn't then I just clear the cookies.

    I just got my first one of these a few minutes ago. Refreshed and it went away.

    For me, it only affects GBATEMP. Its different for everyone.
