Picasa error

Google  
Error

Request-URI Too Large

The requested URL /gadgets/ifr... is too large to process.

Brian,
This is the error message that i keep on getting in my Picasa box, although the problem is strangely intermittent. You would think that if a URL was too big it would be too big all the time.
Looking at the start of the URL which says /gadget the problem may lie elsewhere but like i say it's in my Picasa box.
I have checked my gallery headings and all would seem to be ok. So i don't know what URL it finds a problem with.

I find it annoying.
Brian, i am not changing over from Picasa due to the error message. I am changing simply because i bought a year subscription with SmugMug.
The error message just pushed me a little faster to change.
 I have no issues with Picasa and would use the service again.
Thanks for your quick response.

I've seen this error message reported in our help forum at http://goo.gl/pWfD and it was caused by a problem with our cookie file. You may need to either allow cookies for Picasa, or just clear your cookies. You can find steps to clear your cookies at http://goo.gl/I28J
