    Hi, does anyone know what the maximum number of characters accepted in the URL field of the "Composer" tab, when set to method "Post" ?

    Thanks

    Hello, Kate--

    I'm curious why you ask?

    No limit is set in Fiddler's code, but experimentation suggests that either the .NET Framework or Windows 8.1  itself only permits 30000 characters in the combobox control.

    In practice, many servers will refuse requests whose headers are over 16k in length.
