Nothing more than what I've already said. I want to go directly to inbox in windows live mail (my account is actually Hotmail.com) if that makes a difference. I've tried what others have but they have used IE and the options are there from there silly Msn toolbar, but the toolbar is not compatible with Firefox. Please if anyone can help would be much appreciated.

Thanks Joe

What do you think about using a bookmark? If you display the Bookmarks Toolbar, it's a one-click operation. If you save the bookmark to the Bookmarks menu, it's a two-click operation. You wouldn't need an additional toolbar.

After opening your mailbox, you can drag the padlock icon from the left side of the address bar and drop it on the Bookmarks Toolbar to add the bookmark there. Right-click and choose Properties to edit the name if it's not to your liking. (If you don't normally display the Bookmarks Toolbar, you can show it by right-clicking a blank area of the tab bar and choosing it from the toolbar list.)

Or to add it to your Bookmarks menu, double-click the faded "star" icon after the right end of the URL (or press Ctrl+d) to open the bookmark dialog. Change the folder to Bookmarks Menu if necessary.

Now... I should mention that for this to work in the future, you would need to stay logged in to your mail site (using Microsoft's cookie) or have Firefox or your favorite password filling add-on save your mail login. Otherwise, your bookmark will be diverted to the login page.

Any luck?

Jeff, it took a couple of times and for some reason my computer started to move real slow and then froze to the point that i had to hit the restart button on the front? Anyway when it did restart i hit the icon that i put on my desktop and it goes exactly where i wanted it to go,,,,,,,,,,,the inbox!! Your awesome!!! It's been bugging me for a week or so, wasn't such a huge deal and i almost gave up. Again, thanks so much it worked like a charm.
