I got the same issue. Tried from Chrome 68 to the latest 73, none of them would work. All I did is just open a book and read some pages then try to refresh the page with F5, the error woudl occur. However when I try Firefox, there is no problem. Guess this is a Chrome compatibility bug.

To be mentioned, with user authentication enabled, I can never log out in Chrome. Attempted clear all cache data, restart chrome or even reboot my computer, the basic auth session is somehow still in Chrome browser and never go away. May be this is somehow related to the compatibility issue above?

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every alternate Friday.
