Do solutions to problems like these get posted on this forum, or does mozilla just keep score of how many people have them same problem.

Keep score? That's an optimistic assumption. Does Mozilla even know this repository of bug reports exists?

This is this bug - https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=627729 - Hotmail web page continually reloads every second (please do not comment on the bug report)

Comments in that bug report show Microsoft are fast-tracking a fix for this issue, they plan to have it fixed before Firefox 4 reaches the release candidate phase.

A workaround is to change a preference in Firefox:

  1. Type about:config into the location bar and press enter
  2. Accept the warning message that appears, you will be taken to a list of preferences
  3. Locate the preference html5.enable and double-click on it to change its value to false

If you do this, remember to set the preference back to true by double-clicking on it again when this bug is fixed.
