Hotmail flashes continuously and I can't click on anything before it flashes again. I can refresh Firefox and will be able to use Hotmail one time, but to use it again I have to refresh Firefox again. In otherwords I have to refresh Firefox everytime I open Hotmail or Hotmail crashes.

Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache.

Warning ! ! This will log you out of sites you're logged in to. You may also lose any settings for that website.

If there is still a problem, Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} by holding down the <Shift> (Mac=Options) key, and then starting Firefox.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Did this help?

While you are in safe mode;

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.
