I am posting here because Atlassian support has been utterly useless with assisting us with this problem.
When one of my users tries to log in, they consistently get:
Oops, you've made a malformed request.
If you came here from a link we sent you, please contact support.
Moreover, when the user tried to contact support -- guess what -- they require him to log in. I logged in an filed a support request and just got frustrated with the generic "canned" responses that did not solve our problem. I have given up on support after a dozen back and forths, where they did not even come close to understanding the problem we are experiencing.
In my research, it seems that people have experienced this error before, but none of their forum posts have a resolution. Has anyone on this forum run into this, and if so, how did you resolve it?
Any help from the community is appreciated.
I've experienced the same problem today. After a login attempt I was redirected to "Oops, you've made a malformed request".
In my case, it was just failing in Chrome, but it worked in incognito mode.
I discovered that it was related to this extension and disabling it fixed the problem: https://poperblocker.com/
Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I hope this can help someone. We recently ran into a similar issue with the "Oops, you've made a malformed request" and found the issue to be with Internet Explorer (IE 11) where someone had added the *.atlassian.net domains to IE's Trusted Sites. Once we removed them, the issue went away.
This started happening recently to me in Chrome. I noticed that I could use other browsers or Chrome's incognito mode to get around it, but that was a hassle. Alex's mention of a Chrome extension led me to try disabling my extensions one-by-one, and it turned out to be a uTorrent extension causing the problem.
To disable a Chrome extension, simply right-click it, choose "Manage Extensions," then turn the slider to off.
Atlassian support is infuriatingly frustrating to deal with. They never solved my problem. I just gave up on them. We are exploring other products for two reasons 1) We pay too much for this level of incompetent customer support which has never solved a single one of the issues we have had. And 2) the UX on the product is out of the twilight zone. It seems their UX people are much more focused on being hip than having a usable product.
Across the board I get more complaints about Confluence and Jira than any other technology we use.
