When I click on sign out I see an intermediate page which changes too quickly to
read but I think it says that the sign out was unsuccessful. In any case the
sign out option remains indicating that I am still signed in.

This was the url of the sign out :

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Sign in to MSN passport
2.Sign out
3.Observe intermediate status page and capture if possible
4.Verify still signed in with sign out option remaining
Actual Results:  
Still signed in

Expected Results:  
Sign out? Not sure if this is the fault of Moz. probably not, if so it is still
something for advocacy
I have no trouble to sign out of MSN. (I use 1.3b Gecko/20021230 under WinXP).
I don't suppose there is much difference between 20021230 and 20021215 which is
the only difference I can identify at the moment. Do you get an intermediate
screen displaying the status of the logout? Do you know how this could be
caught? Perhaps we need to compare our prefs.js .
I always use default config's. I see source of this sing-out, it use cookies.
Could you delete MSN cookies and try again?
OK I deleted all the cookies from MSN and then succeeded with my sign out so you
are correct. However I am not sure why this should be but thanks for showing me
the way out anyway.
This is could be effect of previously incorrectly saved cookies or something
like it. I not sure, that it is was bug at all.

I can reproduce this every time and each time I have to remove msn/passport
cookies before I can successfully log out.
Resolution: INVALID → ---
the screen can be captured
doing #4 and #5 steps.
