> Hi friends!!!
> I solved this problem just today!!!
> Is very very simple the solution!
> The problem occurs when hotmail checks what OS is in the client, through
> firefox.
> Only the copies of firefox in firefox official site not have this
> trouble... but do no download!!! I just simply explanation about this!
> In a few steps is all resolved!:
> 1 - open firefox
> 2 - write in the box where you write "www.anysite...." about:config
> 3- search "general.agentuser.vendor"

Sorry is "useragent" not "agentuser"!!!

> 4 - double clic and delete the name vendor (Red Hat, Centos, Ubuntu...)
> 5 - FINISH!
> note: the "" not included in the step to follow!
> If for any reason, you bakc to this problem, other alternative is the
> plug-in for firefox "Switch user agent"
> Sorry for my bad english folks!!!!
> Cheers from Argentina!!!
