  • Invalid client request received: Dropped request looping back to same Proxy listener

    Getting the above error when trying to connect to WebGoat using port 8080 on my local host through Firefox. I've set up the Firefox proxy for localhost port 8080 and the same on Burp. Saw another post with the same problem which mentioned invisible proxies? Couldn't figure it out. Thought I'd start a new thread. Any help ASAP would be great.
