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
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"
4 - double clic and delete the name vendor (Red Hat, Centos, Ubuntu...)
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!!!
