If you are using Mozilla Firefox browser and having problems with Hotmail Login in Firefox then this article will be a great help to get rid of the problems you are facing. There may be many reasons causing such log in problems with Firefox while using hotmail.com. I have gathered possible problems that may occur with their solutions.
Unlike other browsers, Hotmail Login in Firefox may face some problems due to enabling third party cookies in this Firefox browser. This may be caused due to of corrupt cookies or cache. To get rid of this problem, you should clear all the saved cookies and the cache. You can just disable the third party cookies but this may result in having problems to work properly for other sites. So clearing cache and cookies will be best option. You can clear them by going to Firefox > History > Clear recent history or if you are unable to find Firefox button, then go to Tools > Clear recent history. After selecting this option, you should select ‘Everything’ under ‘Time range to clear’ list of options and check Cache and Cookies and uncheck everything else from the details list. Now you can click the ‘Clear now’ button so that all cookies and cache are deleted.
If you are getting server error in ‘/’ application problem during Hotmail Login in Firefox browser, you should clear cookies and cache as described earlier. And you can also start Firefox in ‘safe mode’ to check if any one of the extensions you installed is causing problem or there is any hardware acceleration troubles. You can enable/ disable extension by going to Firefox > Tools > Add-on > Extensions. You can change to default Firefox theme from Firefox > Tools > Add-on > Appearance to overcome hardware acceleration issues.
Another problem in sign in to Hotmail account from Firefox may be due to old version of Firefox browser you are using. As Hotmail services had been upgraded to Microsoft Outlook services, old Firefox 3.6.x version is not supported by Outlook. So check out Firefox version you are using and find out its old one, you must upgrade to the latest version of browser.
