This has been happening for a year at least and I can't be the only one experiencing it. I'll log in to hotmail (any of my accounts) and I'll click on a new email I've recieved and nothing happens. I'll click 20 times and nothing happens. I'll refresh the page and click and nothing happens (used to work if I clicked fast enough after refreshing. Doesn't seem to work anymore though). I'll click on other emails and nothing happens. Then I'll close IE and open firefox and log in and and click and nothing happens.
It's EXTREMELY annoying and I recall googling this issue in the past and finding that there were either no answers or else the other complaintants had similar problems but not the exact one.
I guess the important clues are that it happens in both browsers and it also happens on differen't computers. Over the last year I've used three different computers with Windows 7 and it eventually happens on all of them.
It was just happening to me about 10 minutes ago and now I've gone back and it appears to be working normally. I really can't figure out what the problem is or how to fix it even temporarily.
Has anyone heard of or experienced this problem?

Hello -
There are many solutions to this problem on Google over the past year, and some include hacked accounts.
Do you ever have Any error message or errors listed on the page at all, or just the open page that lists your inbox emails.

I used your heading "Nothing happens when I click on things in hotmail" to google and found many results that may help.
Can you click to request a New Password ? or visit their Help menu to find a solution ?

These 2 things are among the many solutions listed -
