Today I tried to log in to codeforces from the Opera GX browser and got the "HTTP Status 403 — Forbidden" error, but I managed to log in from another browser without any problems. Please tell me how to deal with this problem, if anyone knows

Hi Ziware, this may be due to some the fact that the content setting are misconfigured. 403 error occurs when there is a request send by the client to which the server cannot comply or there is some issue with the sending part. Try clearing the cookies and cache of your browser and try again. Tell me if it worked.

    That's not how it works, you're mistaking 403 Forbidden for 400 Bad Request. The problem is most likely with a too strict bot checker on Codeforces side. Try to use Chrome useragent, if it doesn't help your only hope is to report to Mike.
