Hi Mark

First off, you shouldn't hijack another topic. It is best to start a new one with the correct subject. It avoids confusion.

Best Wishes

I have a question about version 6.2. How do I ad documents to people? I don't want them to show on the desktop. Just be available for reference in the notes. Thanks so much.

That problem was discussed recently in the FHUG Forums:

{'statusCode':400,'error':'Bad Request','message':'Invalid cookie header'

The suggestion was to clear cookies and that resolved the problem for some users.

Subject: [family-historian] Firefox and FindMyPast

I've been using FH for some time now and in general the software very much. I regularly use the Internet Link to FindMyPast and MyHeritage with no problems. In the last couple of days though when I select the FMP hints buttons I have a problem and get an error page. Ineed help on how to fix it please. I use Firefox as my webbrowser.

When I select the FMP hints buttons get:

statusCode":400,"error":"Bad Request","message":"Invalid cookie header

when I expand on this I get:
