Cross Site Action Detected

Recently I tried to reboot my router from within Firefox. I was greeted with this error:

    400 Bad Request
    Cross Site Action detected!

Some nominal investigating revealed the error was created by the DD-WRT firmware.

I am using the RefControl add-on with Firefox. The solution is to allow referrer headers from the router IP address.

I hadn’t before seen this warning page. I recall several weeks ago having “cleaned house” of many old and stagnant Firefox settings. Likely I then inadvertently deleted the Refcontrol option for the router.
