How can I resolve this error? I am trying to use the latest bookmarket in wp 4.2, and get this error:

I can whitelist my ip to solve the issue, but that doesn't help if my ip changes. Is there another way to whitelist this code?

I can't reproduce this. The Press This bookmarklet is working fine for me.

Can you locate the Bad Behavior log entry corresponding to this request and copy it here? It will have additional information that should be helpful.

Hmm. I don't think the browser is supposed to be sending a Referer header when you click a bookmarklet. I'll double check this.

In the meantime you can work around the problem by enabling the Offsite Forms setting.
