I can log in to my hotmail account (, but cannot access my inbox. The message I receive when trying to access the inbox is "sorry, there's a problem with Hotmail right now". I can access my inbox via Firefox from another computer (Mac) but not from my PC. I have also been able to access via Explorer from my PC. I've accessed the same in box since 2009 via Firefox. Could Firefox be blocking my inbox? I need a resolution ASAP. Thank you.
