    Exclamation Firefox 13/Hotmail Issue

    Hey guys, I've been having a problem using my hotmail account within Firefox ever since I updated to version 13 earlier this week....Basically, I always keep my hotmail tab open on my PC and in the past, it seems like it was always listening for new emails because I'd get them right away without having to refresh (and even the tab name would change) but now, that doesn't work in Firefox 13

    Sometimes I do get new emails while I am looking at the tab, but they don't appear....Until I refresh the page. Is there a way to bring back the old functionality?

    Me too....By the way, I did find 2 related topics on official Mozilla sites. Feel free to track/comment on them, or anyone else having this issue:

    Can anyone confirm (or deny) if this bug has been resolved in 13.0.1?

    I can confirm this is fixed in Firefox 13.0.1. The name of the tab (in the tab bar) doesn't change anymore when a new email is received which is still annoying, but at least you don't have to refresh the page to check new emails....

    I just tried and it worked for me. In fact the tab changed to show that I got a msg.

    This is under Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 32-Bit and using FireFox 15.0

    Here's my version of FireFox:

    Weird...OK, this is working now again for me using FF15, although the tab is no longer updating in real time but that's a minor issue.
