Comment Re:Who uses Hotmail with Firefox on Linux? (Score 1) 396

Linux is my primary OS and I use Hotmail only for legacy purposes every now and then since the account dates back to 1997. The new interface is essential to quickly remove all of the spam compared to the original version. It is still inferior to gmail. I figured out this user agent issue months ago. Firefox Windows works, but any other user agent combination does not. On the rare occasion that I check my hot male, I have to remember to switch the user agent and then switch it back. There is a handy firefox plugin to help this called User Agent Switcher. http://chrispederick.com/work/user-agent-switcher/ Keep in mind that Firefox Windows is not a predefined choice so you must manually add an entry with the proper value.
