    Exclamation Ubuntu/Firefox/Hotmail(Microsoft Live) - Send Mail Bug/Error

    It has something to do with Java I believe.... or AJAX.

    When logging into Hotmail "Windows Live".
    On Firefox 3.03 and Ubuntu 8.04.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Upgrade your web browser
    We recommend that you upgrade your web browser so you can get the most out of Windows Live Hotmail. Upgrading should only take a few minutes. To get started, choose one of the browsers below:

    * Microsoft Internet Explorer
    * Mozilla Firefox
    * Apple Safari

    If you don't want to upgrade right now you can still continue to Windows Live Hotmail, but some parts of it may not work and it may not be displayed properly.
    Got a mobile device? Check your e-mail by going to http:/mobile.live.com/hm.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    After selecting "continue to Windows Live Hotmail" I can view and read email.
    The problem is that the option to switch from "Rich Text" editor is not working.
    And can not switch to another editor mode like HTML and plain text.
    The Rich Text editor is default and seems to be disabled as the options such as Bold are not selectable.
    Can't even type in the message field...

    WISH THERE WAS A WAY TO GET BACK TO CLASSIC HOTMAIL.
    There is no way after you accept the new Live version.


    Hell.. you know what... Microsoft can kiss my butt.
    I might move all my email registration to Google email.

    Guess I am looking for a solution for my clients who I have talked into using Ubuntu.
    Just today one of them ask me about the issue.
    I told them I would try to get an answer.
    Thanks in advance.

    Yeah, I don't use Hotmail/Live but I have encountered it when helping a mate out. Google is one of many excellent email providers, you should check out GMX also; http://mail-eu.gmx.com/ They're a German company but they have offices in the States, pretty good too, I use them as well as Gmail.

    Question Re: Ubuntu/Firefox/Hotmail(Microsoft Live) - Send Mail Bug/Error

    Can't believe that I'm the only person to see this error on 5 different machines this month.
    All latest Ubuntu and Firefox versions installed.

    Did I post in the wrong forum area??
    This is not a small bug and should be addressed.

    If anyone has another post about this issue add the link here to string this problem.
    Thanks!

    I have a ton of clients who trusted me to install Ubuntu on their systems.
    They all have the same error with Hotmail.
    I've got nothing to give them as a solution other then switching to another email service.
    Damn you Microsoft!! Damn you!!!!! lol

    just a note to say ive got this same problem using firefox 2 and also opera 9. really seriously annoying. suggestions to change email providers are fairly unhelpful.
