Can't quit Firefox browser when in Hotmail?


When I'm on the Hotmail website, I can't quit (Command+Q) the Firefox browser. This never happens with any other website. Very irritating that a website has more power than my browser. Please advise!

Additional System Details

Installed Plug-ins

  • Shockwave Flash 11.6 r602
  • Displays Java applet content, or a placeholder if Java is not installed.
  • Amazon MP3 Downloader Plugin 1.0.17
  • iPhoto6


  • User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:18.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/18.0

This can happen if a text area or plugin has focus.

Did you try to click on empty space on that page to set the focus elsewhere?

Yes, I did (and did it again just now to make sure). Doesn't make a bit of difference, unfortunately. Other ideas?
