    Angry [SOLVED]MSN Live/Hotmail email "upgrade"!!!

    Hi,

    I run Ubuntu 8.04 & Firefox 3.

    Lately MSN have forced a change to my "Live/Hotmail" email. You used to be able to select the "Classic" version over the "upgraded" version but now they appear to be forcing it on everyone.

    The upshot is that with the "upgrade" the message box is greyed out so I cant add a message to reply or send to anyone.

    The MSN email works fine in Windows & I realise this is typical MSN in that u can't ask a simple question & they have removed any reference to the Classic version (which worked just fine) in the "help" files, that I can see anyway.

    Anyone had similar problems?

    I notice that when accessing my mail the MSN site tells me I need to upgrade my browser even though I'm on Firefox 3 & it says Firefox 2 is ok!

    Anybody have any ideas?

    Many thanks.

    Mate, I've got the same thing.

    Only thing is I'm stoopid as far as Ubuntu goes and don't know how to fix it.

    Help would be appreciated.

    I can't verify that this works but others seem to have been successful with this fix (it's in the thread sartorius posted):

    I'm experiencing the same problems so I will try this when I get home.

    Thanks all.

    Checked sartorius' link and it worked.

    It also removes that "upgrade your browser" page.

    I wonder why Firefox isn't set up this way to begin with?

    Thanks again.
