Windows 7: Anyone else notice Hotmail won't display Inbox properly?

Same problem here. Seems like a Windows 7 compatibility issue for now. I have an XP computer at work and had no problem all day long.

I have tried IE as well and it has the same problem. Does hotmail even know of this problem? I submitted a report last night through downrightnow.com and this morning it seemed to be fixed, even on Windows 7, but it's back. I have to use a 3rd party software to read my messages.

OK...I find out that I can switch back to the old hotmail layout. Mine is working fine...also WLM is normal as well.

As of this morning mine is working again, but that doesn't mean it will keep working. How do you switch to the old hotmail layout?

No gear to click on with my hotmail and I don't see a "switch back" option anywhere.

It's still hit and miss today.

I find Opera has more luck getting in. Once you can get to the Inbox then setting Pane options to Off might restore it to usable.

Or try any portable browser you can "throw away" once you get by the block. Maybe MaxThon or some other.

Hotmail for me is still a mess. Tried switching to Outlook and it is no better.

It was a fight to get it straightened out, so for now back to Hotmail I am.

This sucks !

Anyone have a clue as to what is going on ?

Tried Opera, same problem.

Now today my inbox is showing but it's a brand new problem. I can't do anything with the messages. I can't open them to read, I can't delete any of them, I can't compose a new message, etc. Nothing you click on does anything.

IE works when the inbox displays but it's still hit and miss whether the inbox comes up.

This is strange.

If you can get to any point where you have the Options link, try setting Pane to OFF. Of course it could be you didn't have it on in the first place. Might just be coincidence. But it seems like I've been able to use it since setting that off. I've had a Hotmail account for many years. Even before MS bought it. I've never seen it this bad where the Inbox won't even open after log in. If there was a problem in the past it was usually inability to log in.
