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!
