Attached here is a snapshot from my System Status > System Logs > System

What does this mean and what to fix and how to fix it?

Thanks!

Another thread that discussed this a year ago: https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,57363.0/all.html
Something in the browser is sending requests to the pfSense webGUI server (lighttpd) with long variable names (in the request string, I guess). But I don't see that it was resolved in that thread, and there was no change to any of the [suhosin] section of /etc/rc.php_ini_setup stuff since 2010.
Others feel free to add your understanding...
