I just got a second hand Mac and don't know much about OS, nor computers in general. I'm having trouble getting into my Hotmail account. When I go to hotmail, all I get is a blank screen, and sometimes a pop-up asking me for some mumbo-jumbo that I have no idea what it is.

TIA for any help anyone can offer.

ETA: It also won't let me download Firefox. I keep geting a message that says "verification failed."

Have you tried setting up your hotmail account through the mail application that comes installed with the OS X software?

And I'd assume you're using Safari 5 as your default webbrowser? Have you tried downloading Google Chrome, I've found it to work out a lot better in OS X than FireFox. ;)

I have a hotmail account. I dont have trouble logging in, but logging out is a little funky. msn, says it has trouble logging out.

Try switching to google chrome or firefox.
