How can I access Hotmail.com without being directed to Outlook (it's OK in Internet Explorer and Google Chrome)?

more options

I have had a Hotmail email address for some time and recently added an Outlook email address. Now I cannot access the Hotmail account - I'm automatically presented with the Outlook one. Same when I try to go to Hotmail.com. There is no such problem using Internet Explorer or Google Chrome, so I guess I need to change something in Firefox?

Outlook and Hotmail are the same service via Microsoft. I use the Windows Live Mail program.
