    Definietly sounds like it's your Firefox that's the problem, cmcanulty. I notice you have a lot of toolbars and things running - maybe it's time to back up bookmarks, passwords and so on and purging/reinstalling FF?

    Re: Hotmail to Outlook mess

    Well get a gmail account. I use my hotmail account only for registering on random sites that require an email address (such as this forum) and I only log in once a month to make sure that it is still active and remove spams. Don't want to deal with MicroSoft as much as possible. Moonlight? Thanks but no thanks.

    Do you have some type of Ad Blocking Program installed?

    I originally had problems attaching files in Outlook.com when using Adblock Plus until I added Outlook (bay002.mail.live.com) to the Whitelisted domains in Adblock Plus.

    Well.....?

    Disabling add-ons sometimes require a restart of your browser.

    If the attachment included Silverlight media the requirement would make sense if not I don't know why it would be suggested.

    Question was whether you have restarted your browser after you disabled your addons.



    Well I wouldn't waste my time trying to get hotmail to work because of MicroSoft's stupid requirement. I wouldn't even try. Gmail all the way,

    Re: Hotmail to Outlook mess

    I switched from Hotmail to Outlook as soon as it was available and and other than the Adblock Plus issue with attachments I have never had a problem with Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome and I do Not have Moonlight installed.

    You might try Clearing All of the Mozilla Firefox history there might be something in there that is causing a problem...
