    Quite frequently I've been getting this Unexpected Error (404 error) while logging in to both w7forums and windows10forums. The error happens around the same time of day, 2 to 4 AM central time zone.

    I've ignored it several times and come close to reporting it a few other times. I finally decided to report it tonight.

    Hi Clifford,

    What browser are you using to log in with when you get this error?

    Firefox 43.01

    After a few minutes the error goes away and it is the next day before I see it again.

    Hi Clifford,

    It's possible in the preferences for your Firefox browser the network.http.sendRefererHeader is set to 0.

    Depending on how a webserver is set up this can cause a default error to be triggered, usually 404, but occasionally a 403 error too.

    To resolve this simply:
    • open the Firefox browser
    • In the Location/Address bar type about:config and press ENTER key
      • Alternately click Tools | Options | Advanced | General | then click the Config Efitor button
    • You ought to see a long list of preferences. Scroll down to location network.http.sendRefererHeader
      • If its value is 0 or 2, then left double-click it and set value to 1 (i.e. network.http.sendRefererHeader: 1)
    Note: If you cannot see network.http.sendRefererHead at all in the preference list then add it to the list by doing the following:
    • Right click in a blank area of page (or select Context Menu)
    • Select New Type of Preference
      • You will be prompted for the preference name and initial value.
      • Enter: network.http.sendRefererHeader for the name and 1 for the value

    Thanks for the heads up Clifford - if it happens again, if you could let me know the exact date/time it happens (GMT if possible- as that's the server time) and I'll look at the logs and see what happens at this end :).

    Thanks Clifford, this hasn't shown up in the usual logs - so I'll need to see why that is. I'll add a MySQL monitor and see what's going on :).

    It looks like nothing appeared in the main logs as everything is still running, but the MySQL table is locked during a slow query that happens around this time. I've got the query from the log and I'm seeing if I can re-factor it to prevent this from happening.
