    FF 30.0 and 27.0 installed Hotmail issue


    Here's a weird one. Both Firefox 30.0 and 27.0 installed, when I do a Reply in hotmail I cannot type into the body of the msg. Only the subject line.

    However FF 27.0 Portable works normally. So does Opera x64 and chromium. I don't think I've run into this before.

    Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache. In order to try to fix these problems, the first step is to clear both cookies and the cache.

    Try Firefox's Safe Mode? That's a standard diagnostic tool to bypass interference by extensions (and some custom settings). Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode.

    I tried your suggestion. At almost worked. In the reply I got the msg to type some stuff in, but it still doesn't show the caret there or let me enter anything. I'll have to see which AddOn I added last as I'm sure it worked earlier.

    I found what it was. It was a color issue. I could not see the caret or text when I typed. If I use ColorToggle before going inside the message then the reply will act normally.

    Thanks for the help.
