    So everytime i try to log in to hotmail it doesnt work. I can get to the sign in page, but when i put my password it just goes through a bunch of loading things in the toolbar and then says windows can't open it. It works when i go to my desktop computer though... i am wondering if anyone else has had this happen on their macbook??? If so help me please!!!

    I've been experiencing same thing on my MBP lately.

    So what I did was I used different browser (Firefox in my case) instead of Safari and I was able to log in promptly.

    Hope this helps.

    Go into your safari preferences, securities tab, show cookies.
    Search live and delete the results (unless you recognize them as a site you need the cookies from) and hotmail will work in safari again.

    To add to the above post...after you clear your cookies, when you log in just choose the "Save my e-mail address" option. You will be able to log in then, but you'll have to type in your password every time for now.

    According to the official Live blog (link), Microsoft is supposedly working on the issue and should be done by January.
