Fixed Add media button exceeds maxquerystringlength for phones

#1
On iPhone 5, Nexus Android tablet and Samsung S5 after clicking 'add media' then selecting an existing album, clicking the 'Add Media' button returns an error:

The length of the query string for this request exceeds the configured maxQueryStringLength value.
[HttpException (0x80004005): The length of the query string for this request exceeds the configured maxQueryStringLength value.]
System.Web.HttpRequest.ValidateInputIfRequiredByConfig() +9701261
System.Web.PipelineStepManager.ValidateHelper(HttpContext context) +53
I'm running PHP 5.5 on a Windows server and the I believe the max query length is a security thing.

I don't know the value it is set to. But can't imagine a lot of information needs to be transferred when clicking to go to a page to upload photos. Is there more in there than needs to be?

Firefox on windows 7 doesn't cause any problem - it's only phones and tablets.

This wouldn't usually be classed as a bug.

It certainly works fine on iOS and Android devices generally, so, unfortunately, this is down to your server configuration. As you've said, it does appear to be a configuration value.

That being said, we may be able to adjust the amount of data being passed to the query string.
