Invalid URL The requesed URL "/?qs=20920211...", is invalid
I received an email from Newegg with the following link;
The response when I click on the link is that Firefox opens and displays the following:
Invalid URL The requested URL "/?qs=2092021128449e4cb0bd4d4a59cd9edac0a3605d20252e322f8f64d64f3af97ec5927e200f4e494c", is invalid. Reference #9.75094a17.1401382471.4b0169b
I am using Thunderbird mail 24.3.0, in Ubuntu 12.04, and Firefox 28.0. If I copy the link and paste it into Google Chrome I get a similar error message.
The requested URL "/?qs=2092021128449e4cb0bd4d4a59cd9edac0a3605d20252e322f8f64d64f3af97ec5927e200f4e494c", is invalid. Reference #9.75094a17.1401383188.4cc8af0
Then for some unknown reason pasting the exact same link into Chrome worked, while Firefox keeps failing.

I got thru using your original like and ended up at;
It could be the work of one of your add-ons, or even add / mal-ware. Look thru your add-ons list and make sure you know what each one is there for. Also, check the programs that are on your computer Windows > Start > Control Panel > Uninstall Programs. (Mac: Open the "Applications" folder) Go thru the list and use a web search to check any that you don't know what they are.
You can try these steps in case of issues with web pages:
You can reload web page(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.
- Hold down the Shift key and left-click the Reload button
- Press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
- Press "Command + Shift + R" (Mac)
Clear the cache and cookies only from websites that cause problems.
"Clear the Cache":
- Firefox/Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"
"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:
- Firefox/Tools > Options > Privacy > "Use custom settings for history" > Cookies: "Show Cookies"
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.
- Switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance
- Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window
