I'm trying to log into a hotmail.co.uk account via mail.live.com and keep getting the above error. I have cleared recent history and disabled Adblock but no success. I'm using Windows 7 SP1 and Firefox 5.0:

The page isn't redirecting properly

 Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.
       
 This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept
   cookies.

The error page then received is as follows:

Server Error in '/' Application. Runtime Error Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".

<configuration>

   <system.web>
       <customErrors mode="Off"/>
   </system.web>

</configuration>


Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.

<configuration>

   <system.web>
       <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
   </system.web>

</configuration>

Would appreciate any help you can give. Many thanks, Ben
