The problem has only been there for a few days. The correct login address appears but live.com doesn't open. Googlemail is working.

What do you mean by correct login address appears

Thank you Kaartic. The liv.com login address appears in the firefox address line but I cannot login to live.com and my hotmail address. this has happened for the last 2/3 days.

Hi, delete all references to the website in question, as shown under the heading 'How do I remove a single website from my history?' in this article - Delete browsing, search and download history on Firefox, then try the site (not from an old bookmark) again. Note: It may take a few minutes to complete the deletion.

If your question is resolved by this or another answer, please take a minute to let us know. Thank you!

Thank you, Scribe. I don't have any history to delete. In the firefox address bar, if I enter https://login.live.com/login, then nothing happens. Also the same if i use my sign In bookmark.

It doesn't just delete history, it clears everything connected with that site, so you can start afresh. Do not use a bookmark. Try entering live.com

The fact that Gmail is OK, suggests it is a site specific issue, but you can have a look at your AV https/SSL settings as show in How to troubleshoot security error codes on secure websites

Thank you, Scribe. Using live.com also gives the 'unable to connect' message, i.e. the same message I get from all other attempts. My solution is to set up a new account with runbox and transfer all I did with hotmail to runbox. I'm going to ditch hotmail forever. Best wishes from rassauman.

Thank you Kaartic. Yes, this works, although it was just as well I had set a Master Password for Firefox beforehand, otherwise I would have been stuck on two occasions. Many thanks. I still think I'm going to get a runbox account. IBM Security Trusteer Rapport tell me live.com is trying to read my keystrokes every time I type in my password to sign in to my hotmail account - but this is blocked by the IBM Security Trusteer Rapport programme.
