Anybody know why hotmail all of a sudden refuses to work with google chrome?
#1
I can log in, see what e-mails I have to read, but when I click on them literally nothing happens. In fact the only button that works is sign out lol - no yellow square with progress in bottom left like normal.

No need to tell me hotmail is rubbish or tell me to join another e-mail provider, as yahoo or gmail would not be able to open inportant e-mails that already exist on my hotmail would it lol

I seriously think microsoft should have a proper email contact system as well. Or do they? Yet again google does not provide any suitable info....

Looks like nobody else gets this issue lol (always me!)

I found that I have to use internet explorer 7 to open e-mails. So the 2012 software does not work, but 2006 software does.

Proof that software goes backwards not forwards. Updates will never take place on my laptop again! Club

Have you tried opening it in Incognito mode?

My husband was having this problem on his computer with all browsers. I figured it out and it turned out that the problem was because hotmail wasn't going to the https: site, but regular http: which made it not work. So, maybe that's what's going on with you, too. Try adding the 's' to the 'http' and see if that helps.
If not, then I have no idea. Toungue

Thanks incognito mode did work because it disables extensions. That gave me an idea to test the ones I use. Turned out to be 'collision for chrome' which tracks the tracking websites (geek tools lol) this app was blocking hotmail from doing anything it seems.

I just got rid of it, tested, works fine again Toungue Thanks for nudging my brain Cool

I had an issue like this ages ago. I had to start using HTTPS rather then HTTP (Option in Hotmail) Worked fine since lol.
