400 Bad request on attempt to come to Community

Using the new SAP Community I get Bad Request errors specifically a lot from Firefox.

Interesting enough, some login issues go away once I have done same action with Chrome. But also here have been some bad request issues. So I could work around of most os the issues.

But Questions and answers still does not work on Firefox.

I can live with that for now, but others may not!

PS: Tried to put this on Q&A- but try to find the right tag for this kind of question- good luck

    it is the "using" tag that you are looking for...

    Yep, Martin is correct. See the support page for more information. I'll alert a moderator and hope they can move this to q&a. :)

      I don't think stuff can be moved from Coffee Corner to Q&A...

        I don't know, it's both under and CC is just a tag kind of. Let's find out. It could be helpful to know later on, when more people start to post their issues here like in old SCN. ^^

          I think "moving" stuff in Q&A is just changing the tags, now, via edit mode, isn't it? You can't do that to stuff posted here in the CC. There is no tag visible. Perhaps behind the scenes there's a way, but I don't think a regular moderator can do it.

          But let's wait and see what the moderator response is. Maybe I'm wrong...

            Steve, you're correct. The Coffee Corner discussions are just that: discussions, i.e. an original posted discussion with threaded comments. They are a different "content type", if you will, than Q&A and blogs. Q&A and blogs both use tags.

            Coffee Corner discussions are at the moment the *only* discussions we have (outside of the archived ones). Ergo no tagging in this content type for now.

            I hope that explains it a little bit.

    This is strange - I have been using the site actively since the launch in Firefox ESR and Pale Moon (a Firefox clone) and I did not face such kind of issues.

    I am using the latest browser versions (Windows 7) in private browsing mode with just a few add-ons active.

    I also tried the site in Firefox 48.0 (Linux Mint 17, AdBlock Plus, NoScript) - still no bad requests.

    Well, from time to time the submit button just does not work (nothing happens when you press it), but when this occurs - I just copy the content to the clipboard, refresh the page and paste it again - then all is fine.

    Where exactly did you encounter this message?

    As for the login issues - what exactly did you mean - you cannot log on and get some error, you get logged out while browsing

    I can try to help you, we can compare our settings, if you wish - I also want to keep using my preferred browser.

      Hi Veselina,

      first of all: I'm not reporting anything because of my preferred browser, but due to p√ľossibilities that other users have same trouble and will give up before reporting (with a loss in users to the site).
      I meanwhile found that this is about a cookie and more concretely the s_pers cookie that seems to be related to SAP employees. OK, that means it at least does not hurt customers. I will continue to check out what thsi is about.

        I am glad that you found the culprit.

        Yesterday I stumbled upon some page with a link for cookie opt-in opt-out choices, where it was mentioned which functionality will work if you opt for a specific level of allowed cookies. Unfortunately, I cannot locate that anymore and post a screenshot for others to check their settings in case things don't work as expected. is not the most intuitive site (sigh).
