When trying to logoff Hotmail (to change to another user) nothing happens.
I have to close all Mozilla open browsers and open Hotmail again.

When trying to logoff the browser stays at:

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to
2. open an account
3. logoff
4. try to change to another user

Actual Results:  the "change user" does nothing.

Expected Results:  Show a new Hotmail login page.
i don't have hotmail a/c ... but i suspect this is becoz of hotmail instead of
mozilla (just my guess :) )
Works for me identically with the following browsers on Windows ME:
  Mozilla build 2002011103
  Microsoft Internet Explorer build 6.0.2600.0000

Steps I took to attempt to reproduce the bug:

1. sign in at, name: d_yerrick, pw: ********
2. sign out
3. it takes me to the "Signing you out of Passport..." screen and then to MSN
4. click the 'Hotmail' link at the top of MSN

Result:  I'm on's front (login) page, as expected.

Reporter:  are you using Password Manager to remember your .NET sign-on info?
Also, look at the top center of MSN after you sign out of Hotmail.  It should
say "Sign In" or "Sign Out" depending on whether you're signed in or not.

However, after a couple tries, I did get a "connection refused" from and had to refresh.
