Outlook's Newer Version Using Firefox

I use Hotmail/Outlook.com and over the last few years they rolled out a new interface. I tried it years ago and it didn't take long to hate it. So I never used it. I was able to access the older version via one of two links: https://outlook.live.com/owa/?path=/inbox Or https://outlook.live.com/owa/?path=/mail/inbox

I was happy with the older version. Lucky for me, those links worked with Firefox - never worked on Chrome for whatever reason. But they stopped working this week and I'm stuck with the new version. Those links don't "lock in" and I'm taken to the newer version.

I think Microsoft made the full transition to the new version and removed the older version altogether. Of course, not Firefox's fault, but I thought I'd check in here to see if anyone can still access the older Hotmail/Outlook version using Firefox.

Is there any kind of coding I can change in about:config that would get me back to the older version?

Thanks.

I don't like it either. That is why I use Thunderbird
