Oldtimer, I mean toilet, if none of our suggestions helped out, then take a screenshot of the NoScript list after opening Hotmail.com so we can see what it looks like.

As Tek mentioned, check your FF and NoScript version, update as necessary or for testing purpose at least. Also as Kazyn mentioned, a corrupt static data in the cache could jack things up. You could use a temp file cleaner as I mentioned to clear them up or you can do within Firefox.

From the Menu bar on top: Tools > Options
1. First click on Privacy tab and clear out the History and Cookies
2. Then click on Advanced tab then the Network tab down below to clear the cache which would be the likely cause.


No need to insult with the "old timer", "toilet" remarks. You ageist or something?

Just to clear things up: Firefox, no-script and hotmail were working fine when the hotmail stopped working. All of a sudden last weekend my hotmail went haywire. I clear the cache all the time so there wasn't anything there to clear

Firefox version: 11.0
No-script: 2.3.5

I like no-script, have been using it for years, along with firefox. I will continue using no-script and probably change my email provider. (or just work around it) I just hate to do that after being accustomed to it. It just stopped working, out of the blue.

Thank you all for your expertise and time.

Things update, stuff breaks. Did you add all the sites to it? It still does not function?


(I'd go to gmail, better provider anyway)

Wow, why would I take my sweet time and try to help you if I assumed you were old(er) than me if I was ageist or something?

I'm sorry, I meant no disrespect. I was being silly but obviously hit the wrong button.

Spammers are getting more sophisticated. S/he got in, dropped two posts then got tagged. They exploit the weaknesses in registration engine's algorithm using god-knows-what software. Once one or two gets in, many usually follows unless the C-D IT people do something to prevent it.

Sorry, thought I had. Yes, I removed and then replaced. Still didn't work. Hotmail now works when I do the "temporary allow all of this page" from no script.

When I read the above post I felt it was an insult. Calling someone "oldtimer", or "toilet" isn't exactly a compliment. So, the "oldtimer" was where I figured you might be ageist and the "toilet" remark...well, that speaks for itself. Anywho...apology accepted.
And what is this about a blueberry? I didn't see any posts....

Of course. And the name is oldtoiletsmkgdflrpots, not old, not toilets, not make, not good, not flower, not pots.

Shall I take liberty and call you az?

Really, I have no control over what someone calls me on the internet...and I've been called some pretty snarkey names. It would have been best to just leave my being insulted out of the equation. Sometimes when people know something gets to you it is an incentive to do it even more. My fault for saying anything.

In the big picture I really don't give a rip...it was the moment when I read it, that has long passed and I have forgotten about it. Please feel free to do so as well.
