    Hotmail doesn't work in FireFox 3.6

    I'm using Firefox 3.6.18 and for the past 2 months I have been unable to access my Hotmail email. I'm logging in via the browser at www.hotmail.com. I can log into my Hotmail account, then I can go to my inbox, but once I am there, nothing happens when I click on anything email related...individual messages, folders, New, Delete, etc. I can click on "sign out", Home, Contacts, Calendar - those work ok.

    I have tried upgrading to a newer version of Firefox, deleting everything (cache, history, etc), uninstalling/reinstalling the same version, to no avail. Everything works fine if I use Internet Explorer, but I really don't like IE.

    Any suggestions?

    Hotmail is a MS mail site, wonder if this is causing a problem??? I do not have FF, but do have Chrome, and Hotmail works fine. Have you tried IE9 (I guess this would presuppose you have Vista or Win 7, if XP then IE9 is unavailable). Many believe IE9 is much better than FF.

    Try starting Firefox in safe mode (Hold down the shift key while you click or double click the FF icon) and select disable all addons and see if you can access Hotmail normally.
    I have FF 5 and hotmail works fine.

    Thanks for the safe mode tip, Jerry. That was a good idea, however, Hotmail still doesn't work. I think it's a Microsoft conspiracy to get you to switch to IE9.

    Don't think you can blame M$, Hotmail works for me in FF 4, 5, 6 & 6.1.
