I have had the same Hotmail address for like 50 years. Have had no problem.

While I can log into my account using Firefox, I normally use:

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/ Thunderbird is a free email application that’s easy to set up and customize - and it’s loaded with great features!

Microsoft has migrated access for @hotmail.com and @live.com addresses to the same platform as @outlook.com addresses, but you still should be able to access your older mailboxes.

If you start from

https://outlook.live.com/mail/

and try to log in with your Hotmail address, what happens?

P.S. We probably can help with issues using this account with Firefox, but we can't help with other account issues as those are managed by Microsoft.
