Tag Archive: Clear Active Logins

connection to the server was reset in Hotmail, Firefox

Been having trouble logging into hotmail the last few days, after entering username and password, just get an error saying:

“The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading”

To clear this and actually log on to your hotmail just do the following:

if you have the “Web Developer Toolbar” plugin:
Click Miscellaneous > Clear Private Data > HTTP Authentication

If you don’t have the plugin:

  1. When in Firefox hold down:
    Ctrl + Shift + Del together
  2. Tick “Active Logins
  3. Click “Clear Now” button

Try and log into hotmail again and it will let you in, at last!
