Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


When I want to save a change, I get this error message:

File not found

Couldn't find a file/directory/API operation by that name on the OpenStreetMap server (HTTP 404)

Feel free to contact the OpenStreetMap community if you have found a broken link / bug. Make a note of the exact URL of your request.

Linux, Firefox 23.0.1. The addons NoScript und RequestPolicy are allowing all requests.

Edit: Same when both addons are disabled.

You need to indicate which editor (P1/P2/iD) you were using. You don't say so explicitly but I assume you were editing with one of the online editors and saving your changes.

You should also specify if you are behind a proxy.

I have the same problem (editor ID), firefox23.

Yeah, same error here on iD, Firefox 23.0.1, no proxies. I "solved" by using Chromium (27.0.1453.93)...

Same problem here. iD, FF 24.0, Adblock Plus disabled, NoScript allows all requests.

Is this happening some of the time? All of the time?

If there is an iD bug the place to report is on github at https://github.com/systemed/iD/issues
