Hotmail un-usable constant reload

The reload circle goes and stops and goes and stops when I open email on Hotmail site. Photos in emails flash (appear-disappear-reload, etc., endlessly). All worked perfectly this morning, and then this afternoon new version installed, and now it's so messed up as to be unusable on that site. No problem in IE8. Disabled ABP, and it's not causing the problem (although I did send them a report).

Is there a fix for this?

Chosen solution

It's a bug with Hotmail that started on the 18th or 19th when they did an upgrade.

Microsoft is aware of the problem. Strange thing is this comment.

Is Hotmail pushing ads to Firefox users, but not to IE9beta users?

According to the Hotmail team at Microsoft, they've started rolling out a fix and everyone should have it soon. Can you try again with html5 on and see if it's working now?
