When I open my email via Hotmail, I press on some message, but it doesn't open. just appears "loading", but nothing opened. I can open them via other browsers.

But I used to work on Firefox. Any ideas?

What add-ins are you running? Any other third party software that could interfere? Going through a proxy (or have a proxy set in firefox but not other browsers)? –  Windos Aug 3 '11 at 1:22

I had the same problem with my Hotmail account. I think they designed Hotmail to open better in Internet Explorer.

So I use IeTab add-on and configure it to be used for Hotmail.com automatically.

Edit 1: Another alternative is to use mobile version of Hotmail via http://www.hotmail.com/m/ or http://mail.live.com/m/

Edit 2: What is your FF version? It occurred with me when I was using FF 3.6. I updated to 5.0 a week ago and I see that it does not happen...

Weird. But there is no way that they dont allow chrome and firefox to use hotmail... It works for me... –  soandos Aug 3 '11 at 3:10
They allow, but something happens when opening messages... –  kokbira Aug 3 '11 at 4:33
If you enter for example in pages in ASP you can encounter problems with FF (at least in the past it occurred)... –  kokbira Aug 3 '11 at 4:39
