hello silverlexus54, this redirection to another microsoft page at logout is hardcoded into hotmail.
you could use the greasemokey extension & this userscript to circumvent that behaviour.
Hi thanks for that BUT... I have downloaded and added Greasemonkey extension and I have seen the script. Do I copy this? It doesn't allow you to download and add it anywhere. So what do I do with it, where do I put it and how do I do this? Do I have to copy and paste it into a file? If so which one and where? I am not a programmer, but have reasonable computer skills. Appreciate your help.

hello, yes that's the deafult option of the script - you can also change the page that will be shown at logout manually. go to firefox/tools > addons > user scripts & click "options" next to the "no msn..." script, then select "edit this user script". the first time greasemonkey will ask you to specify an editor - the easiest way is to navigate to C:\Windows\ & select notepad.exe. instead of www.hotmail.com you can then specify any custom page and save the file afterwards...
Thanks for your help will try your solution I'm sure it will work. There's confidence for you.
