Hotmail & Firefox engine

Post by kartapus » Thu May 24, 2012 8:50 am

Hello, Since b171, Hotmail doesn't work anymore with firefox engine (works fine with chrome engine). I can access and read my email but as soon as I try to answer to the message, AVANT crashes (the window become blue with a message in the center of the window asking to reload the page because a problem occurs).

Did you use any add-on under firefox engine that may cause this problem?
Disable all the add-ons , can you still reproduce it?

Build 171 seems to have a problem with Microsoft Silverlight - the framework engine that powers Hotmail.
As a workaround, you can access their basic mobile version at: https://mail.live.com/md/

It's a problem caused by silverlight,disabling it in firefox plugins, the problem disappears.

Tools->Mozilla Firefox->Add-ons->plugins

Please provide the following information before reporting problems:
Avant Version; System(also point out it is a 32 or 64-bit OS);IE; Memory Size; CPU Speed;
Optional: Firewall; Graphics Card

For the problems hard to replay, could you add me into your MSN or Skype list if you use either of them? The advantage is that you can let us know the situation in the first place by making some screenshots, sharing your screen or explaining the specific problems more clearly when they happen.
