My b2evolution Version: 3.x

I get this:

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /blogs/admin.php on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

When I click save at the bottom of my Blog Settings>Features page

Any help?

It's the freaking mod_security module in Apache. I can't believe it's still not fixed after several years. Ask your host to disable it for you.

So will this be resolved with the next version or will we always need our host to disable the mod_security rule?

It's not the app's fault that some third party tool breaks it. AFAIK mod_security blocks all requests with "whatever=http" string in URLs, that's just stupid.

well, my host just whitelisted the same rule we had a problem with last time and I'm still getting the error... suggestions?

***UPDATE***

This appears to be worse than previously thought. Not only can I not save in the Blog Preferences page but I also can't switch to Expert mode in the post edit screen...major suxor.

Please help!

Switch to a better host whose server security doesnt rely on mod_security P:

On the other hand, mod_security is widely use by over-protective, limiting web hosts.
Have you been able to find a solution to this

Looks like they were able to determine which mod_security rule was getting tripped and they disabled it. So far so good...
