    This stinks sooo bad!!!

    Well installing the User Agent Switcher plugin did the trick for me on FF3... but I guess it's time to abandon ship. Anyone has some viable alternatives besides Gmail?

    Yet another act of an illegal monopoly. Has anyone notified the Department of Justice? (antitrust.complaints@usdoj.gov) The European Union?

    My question: why would you want to use Live Hotmail?

    The best question on this thread.

    Ubuntu is about freedom. There are many free email providers that work cross platform, cross browser etc.

    Be free. Hotmail is a spam inducing, virus ridden cancer of the internet.

    Is that too harsh?

    I stopped using Hotmail and moved to GMail.

    Gmail is simply much better than hotmail.

    This will open a new web page.

    For me, User Agent Switcher was the 6th add-on, on the list. Then click on 'Add to Firefox'.

    Install it! Restart Firefox!

    When you are back on Firefox, go to Tools > User Agent Switcher and select any of those browsers from the list. I would recommend Internet Explorer 7 (Windows Vista).

    When you go to hotmail.com, you will be able to access your emails now.

    Hope this helps.
    It did not work for me. I am getting absolutely nothing. I can't even open them with the switcher.
    What? Where am I?

    I have had very little spam since I have had my hotmail account and never a virus.

    You do not need to change agent to say windows OS.

    I changed mine from (which did not work on new hotmail):

    Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.17) Gecko/20080827 Iceweasel/2.0.0.17 (Debian-2.0.0.17-0etch1)


    To (which does work):

    Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.17) Gecko/20080827 Firefox/2.0.0.17

    And still have full functionality in the New Hotmail. In fact I used it to sign up for this forum account.

    So M$ will see that I am running Linux every time I log into Hotmail.
