Hi centeron, the message about the size of a request header field often refers to an excessive amount of accumulated cookies.

After completing work on the site, remove the saved cookies for the site as follows. While viewing a page on the site, try either:

  • right-click (on Mac Ctrl+click) a blank area of the page and choose View Page Info > Security > "Clear Cookies and Site Data"
  • (menu bar) Tools > Page Info > Security > "Clear Cookies and Site Data"

In the dialog that opens, you will see one or more matches to the current address so you can remove the site's cookies individually without affecting other sites.

Then try reloading the page, log back in, and try again. Does that help?
