I went to go check my hotmail account only to find that firefox is "no longer supported". Garunteed that firefox could display the pages very well (as they have it has in the past, and msn.com doesnt look any different). I was just wondering if there was anyway to get around this or will I have to just use IE, to check my hotmail accoutn.

You got that information when you tried to get to your hotmail account or you read it somewhere else?

What version of FF do you have?

If you have problems getting to your hotmail account, you may just want to clean out your cookies (cache). That usually fixes the problem.

I have 1.0 and 0.9.3 and I didn't see that information when I went to my hotmail.

Also, just because they say they do not support MSN and yet you can still view your emails, doesn't mean there is really any problem.

I too use FF 1.0

I just checked my hotmail account, had no problem and saw no message there
about not using FF or it's not being support.

Like Scarlett said, see if cleaning out the cache solves you problem.

You can always use the view in IE extension, if FF does not work, although I just checked at MSN and had no problems (for a MS product) with Mozilla. Here is a link to this fine plug-in:

IE view is an extension that allows you to click on a link, or click on a web page and lauch it in Internet Explorer (there is a popdown menu with the option "view this page in IE."

You might want to check out this Firefox extension. Once you install it, you can tell your browser to report itself as Netscape, Internet Explorer or Opera from a menu that gets added to your Tools menu. I've never used it, so I can't tell you what it's like, but here's a link to check it out if you're interested.
