Size of a request header field exceeds server limit.

I have come up a strange error. It shows me a bad server request and shows Size of a request header field exceeds server limit. So, it is a unusual problem. And I found that my server is requesting with another server with a corrupted cookie file. I am sharing with you the cookie file so you can understand the situation.

This is a corrupted cookie file. Apache has a header size limit of

# allow up to 100 headers in a request
  LimitRequestFields 100
  # each header may be up to 8190 bytes long
  LimitRequestFieldsize 8190

Again, IIS 7 has a size of 16K and IIS 6 has 8K length of header size.

So, we need to manually delete this cookie file. As cookies are browser specific, you need to check our browser how to delete those. I was using firefox and the solution is to go to tools->clear private data.
