    Yeah like MS are going to get of their arses to help IE's biggest competition.

    Why can't they just release it standards complient and use a tempory add-on for anyone using Hotmail.

    It's not in the Hotmail dev team's interests to have a service that doesn't work in Firefox - they don't develop at the behest of the IE marketing team.

    The tricky bit here comes in that the bug is present in an unreleased browser. Hopefully the Hotmail devs will fix the issue, and hopefully that fix is simple (it probably is).
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Sod Hotmail! It's never been coded properly for as long as I can remember and it doesn't work properly on any browser I use, yet Gmail, Fastmail and a few others I use all work fine.

    Firefox 4 won't be ready until they resolve the copy/paste bug that is still occurring on the latest beta affecting my XP laptop and from forums alot of other users to.

    Aside from that Firefox 4 seems ok but still falls over, as firefox 3 did, on my XP laptop when many tabs open with flash content. Opera does not have said flash issues but DOES have issues with various websites I use, which is why I won't use it for my primary browser, but from my experience it is the fastest most stable feature rich browser available ATM.

    When Firefox 4 fixes the below issues I'll be happy but if not I'll switch to IE9 permanently.
    - Copy/Paste fails and need to reboot browser to fix. (Deal Breaker 1)
    - Does not highlight and remember download links I've used. (Deal Breaker 2)
    - Far superior flash management per Opera. (Deal Breaker 3)

    P.S: CHROME SUCKS AND GOOGLE BLOWS! Android is ok aside from the fragmentation and not able to update direct from Google making Google Nexus devices only Android option IMO.

    Anyone else tried Slimbrowser ? It would appear to be "optimised" for flash.
