When I try to check my hotmail from within firefox, I recieve the following error message:
"The Connection Was Refused When Attempting To Contact 10fd.bay10.hotmail.msn.com"
However, If I try through Internet Explorer, it works fine... Any suggestions?

Try disabling the HotmailTabs (I think was the name) extension.

Hmm.... it doesn't show up in the list of extensions, although I do have it installed. I will try to reinstall it... and see if it shows up then.

I'm going to take a shot in the dark here and assume you've probbaly installed an older version of the extension that is not 0.9-compatible.

I installed 0.6, and cusser says they should be compatible with all versions... unless I misread.

Okay, I've tried reinstalling it... and uninstalling it, but it doesn't show up on the list of installed extensions. But there is a "hotmailtabs.jar" file in "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\chrome\" and I can access my messages if I click on the message link from "my.msn.com," so it is definetly a conflict with hotmailtabs. I'm hoping I'm not gonna have to do a clean install :S

*also, I've tried deleting the "hotmailtabs.jar" file, but firefox doesn't start up right the next time, it doesn't have any icons, or an address bar... and it's frozen...

As much as I don't want to do it... as I have already customized it the way I want it, I am going to have to do a clean install... :(

A bit extreeme to do that, though you can always transfer all your settings.
Check the http://kb.mozillazine.org/ if you don't know how to.

Yeah... but it wasn't working any other way... I had tried to transfer all my settings before, but it didn't work, due to my own stupidity. But I got it to work this time... (I did a clean install)

A word of caution to all: beware of hotmailtabs... it's an evil, evil extension, lol

It's not actually, just a bug when used in conjunction with with 0.9 IMO.
