Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've been getting these off and on for a few months. When I open

https://mail.google.com/mail/

it gives me

Bad Request

Error 400

Internet netted some solutions that did not work for me. Anyone know why this is happening and how to get rid of it permanently? I am using google chrome on Windows.

This is really off-topic for Server Fault. It might be on-topic for webapps.stackexchange.com or Super User, but if you've tried the solutions you've found on the internet (no idea what they are since you didn't tell us...) then Google has a technical support team who are really the folks who can address your question best. –  voretaq7 Sep 13 '12 at 18:49

It is not related to servers , still this problem is very common, its due a problem at your cookies, you need to restart them, checking on google help you can see this link

https://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?hl=en&topic=12911&answer=91343

that talks about your problem.

Be sure your computer date is correctly set.

I've tried most of the stuff on the net. Cleared cookie/session information. Verified time. Tried turning off labs=0 etc. Most of the articles seemed to be from 2008... have they not addressed this issue permanently? When I switch to FireFox, it seems to work well. –  sam yi Sep 13 '12 at 17:11
    
This is super annoying and disappointing. –  sam yi Sep 13 '12 at 17:11
    
try entering to the direct path mail.google.com/mail/ca/u/0/?shva=1#inbox, and if not might be cause of your browser, should check on security settings or reinstall it –  jpganz18 Sep 13 '12 at 17:25
    
I've found out you can get this rolling again by deleting GMAIL_IMP cookie. –  sam yi Dec 12 '12 at 23:31
