Outlook with Mozilla? Are you referring to www.outlook.com?

You can try these steps in case of issues with web pages:

You can reload web page(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.

  • Hold down the Shift key and left-click the Reload button
  • Press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
  • Press "Command + Shift + R" (Mac)

Clear the cache and cookies only from websites that cause problems.

"Clear the Cache":

  • new fx menu > Options/Preferences> Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

  • new fx menu > Options/Preferences > Privacy > "Use custom settings for history" > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

thanks but the problem is still there, the highlighter tool is very useful to for instance highlight an incorrect word in a reply, just like with a marker pen, this is to the right of the A and to the left of the bullets tool on outlook when opened with IE, but not when opened in Mozilla.

Unfortunately, I don't know what you are seeing. Can you take screenshots following instructions below of both IE and Firefox doing this?

Can you give me a screenshot so I know what you're seeing? Please see How do I create a screenshot of my problem? to create a screenshot

the browser from IE has a highlighter tool inbetween the A and the bullet tool. but not when opened in Mozilla, I use this to highlight incorrect words when replying, if you try replying to an email and look to the right of the underlined A before the bullet tool there is a highlighter tool which mimics a yellow highlighter pen, but this is not there in Mozilla.

Huh!! That's new.

Mine does the same thing. I've never noticed this before. You may want to file a bug at Bugzilla to see if there's any thing to do about that.

   I use this to highlight incorrect words when replying,

So it's like spellcheck, basically? You can use F7


Let's let someone else comment and see what they think. I've escalated to the professional full-time SUMO HelpDesk team to see if they can give us any additional information. Please wait 24-72 hours for a response :)

Feel free to file a bug at bugzilla.mozilla.org.
