I'm having a problem with Firefox and Hotmail.. before last week, I was able to save my passwords etc in firefox with no trouble, but now, firefox saves the hotmail password until i close the browser and then I have to type all my email and password in again when I open the browser later on. I've checked the boxes to remember me on this computer and remember my password, and i've allowed cookies and its set to until they expire. But firefox refuses to remember them.

Is this just me or are Firefox and Hotmail still have compatibility problems? Because IE saves it just fine.

Firefox - Tools - Options
Click the Security tab
Next to "Remember Passwords..." click "Exceptions"
Look in the box for "hotmail.com"
If you find it click "remove"
Hope that helps.
