Hello Klein,

Welcome to Atlassian Community. It's nice to meet you!

I believe this is caused by the following bug:

  • CONFSERVER-43534 Confluence shows stack trace when accessing a page that uses a special character in the title

You'll want to check your Confluence Server Logs to see the error that is being generated in the logs which is causing the 400 error. Additionally, this issue does not usually occur in Google Chrome. Are you able to confirm if you are able to replicate this in Google Chrome? 

In the event that you are using a reverse proxy, you should also have a look at this article: Pages with special characters are not accessible via reverse proxy. For testing your proxy: Reverse Proxy and Application Link Troubleshooting Guide.

As for the workaround, in the bug above, it contains instructions for updating the page names within your database. For any database changes, make sure to create a full site backup in Confluence prior to making the changes.
