It won't display properly in chrome or Firefox. Last night I could still get it to display using Opera. No more. I keep clicking Inbox link and nothing happens.

I'll have to play around and see if I change back to the old style view if it's usable. As it is, you get as far as this, then clicking Inbox either does nothing or presents a distorted view with no scrolling. It's not usable.

chrome,firefox,opera all useless for some bizarre reason.

edit: I've found if I turn off Pane option then click a message, the message is displayed below the list. Guess that's the fancy new interface. But it's incredibly slow. I have to wait maybe 20 seconds for the click to "take". I hope they fix it soon.

Have had the same problem for days now. Only on I.E., chrome and firefox display properly. It's been driving my boss crazy, i got him to use chrome and now he likes it better than I.E. One less I.E. user now. On I.E. if i hit refresh enough times it will finally display right or if i log out of my account and back in sometimes in goes back to normal until the next time i open it.

One thing I did find. Right after the login screen, instead of clicking on Hotmail, there are a couple of links. One says "go to Inbox" and the other says "you have n unread messages." it could be coincidence. But it seems like the list of messages displays in spiffier fashion if I click those. But the main thing seems to be to disable the Pane feature.

Oh well, at least it's usable now. Too bad because I like that Pane option.

FF 15 has been acting like your 1st shot off and on.

Nothing steady, takes a bit to get it back.

Anyone have any idea what is going on with it ?
