Hi there,

Hotmail is not being displayed properly. The links to emails are broken and the layout is expanded. First I thought this may have been a Java or Flash problem so I uninstalled both and reinstalled. Re-installed the browser, cleared the caches, tried Internet Explorer and the same thing happened. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Cheers,

Looks to me it's an issue on their site. I don't have a Hotmail account myself, so I can't check, but I've seen other sites where the CSS style sheet fails to load properly and they will show like that.

I first considered this, sorry I didn't include this information before, but it works perfectly fine on 2 other computers with my account. Cheers.

Try clearing your cache. Tools>Clear Recent History. Set it to Everything, and, with the drop down arrow, unselect everything except cache. Click on Clear Now.

I'm suspecting that the badly rendered version of the page is sitting in your cache and reloads when you go to the site. Usually this feature is good because it helps the page load faster, but if there was a problem on the page when cached, you'll keep getting the bad rendering. This is not specific to Firefox. All browsers use caching.

I certainly have cleared my full cache. Both via that menu and manually. Still no dice. Cheers.

Just a chance, do you have javascript turned on? Java is not javascript. Turn on javascript in tools>Options>Content.

I've tried this and it does not work. It sometimes does not load ONLY that particular website at all. The thing that confuses me is that it works fine on other computers though... Through the same internet connect, same router, same proxy.

Let's try a new clean profile. Use the profile manager to create a new one, don't add any extensions or any other modifications and see if the page works correctly. Profile Manager - MozillaZine Knowledge Base

Just thought I'd clarify, this also DOES NOT work on Internet Explorer. I'll try the new profile now.

Ok I've done the new profile and still the problem persists. In fact now hotmail will not load AT ALL. It simply states "Problem loading page" as if there is a problem connecting to the Hotmail server.

And Hotmail is the only page you are having problems with?

I have been seeing a lot of issues with Hotmail lately, both here and at another forum I work on. I have no proof, but I think that Microsoft may be playing with the Hotmail site again. They do make changes on a frequent basis... sometimes very bad ones. ;-)

It does seem to be only Hotmail playing up. I would also simply put it down to website error except for the fact that other computers are able to access it fine. Which leads me to expect that there is a configuration problem with my computer...

What security are you using? Which antivirus? Firewall? Maybe it's something in there.

I've managed to get the answer! =] Firefox>Advanced>Network>Settings
Check Manual Proxy Configuration. And then "USE THIS PROXY SERVER FOR ALL PROTOCOLS"!!!

=]

Cheers for all your help.
