This occurs everytime I attempt to move to another page (i.e. from my inbox to compose, or when I check POP mail. Perhaps this is just a case of knowing where to save this file and it will then stop asking me or maybe it is a bug. Thanks for your help! Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.go to hotmail 2.log into hotmail using any email account 3.the problem should present itself Actual Results: the problem occured Expected Results: No clue, I love Mozilla!
This happens to me also: I'm using Phoenix .5 WinME though About: (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021207 Phoenix/0.5) I'm submitting a screenshot too, if it would help at all.
I'd bet $5 that this is actually due to faulty IE-specific scripting in Hotmail (aka Tech Evangelism). Someone should save the source code from an affected page and attach it here for analysis.
I'm getting this too, but it's combined with a more worrisome problem. My browser (1.3) actually downloads and attempts to execute the DLL (which brings up a Windows "you are attempting to open a file of type 'Application Extension' (.dll)" dialog. I've looked through the security settings, and I just can't find any option that would automatically open a file rather than ask if I want to open it.
anyone can still see this problem?
Sorry, wouldn't know. I haven't touched Hotmail since they switched to Passport.

Created attachment 262357 [details] Screenshot of dialogue box with download window Wow, this is an old bug. Strangely enough, I have never encountered it before, and I have been using Mozilla regularly since version 0.8 (Suite), all through Phoenix until now, when this suddenly happened in Firefox 188.8.131.52: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/20070309 Firefox/220.127.116.11 I have also created a screenshot with the dialogue box asking to download ADSAdClient31.dll. Might it have something to do with MIME settings? I have the impression it only happens on my notebook and not on my desktop at home, but since the desktop is in England and I'm in China I'm in no position to check that right now. In any case, I suspect that people who have experienced this bug must have a setting in common with each other and it does not seem a very straightforward bug to duplicate.
It is just my opinion, but I think this is either due to a small number of misconfigured server's or an uncommon bug that sends a response without the appropriate mime type. Without the mimetype, we interpret the response as an unknown, unsafe content type and refuse to display it.
I had the same experience but discovered the answer to the problem on the web. What you need to do is 1. Download and install the free Adblock plug-in for Firefox from here: https://addons.update.mozilla.org/extensions 2. Restart Firefox then... 3. Tools / Extensions / Adblock Right-click then choose Options 4. Click in New filter and type: http://rad.msn.com/adsadclient31.dll You can then read Hotmail without the MS prompts.
Hotmail was retired in 2013 in favour of Outlook.com. As far as I can tell the web interface is completely different, so I suspect this bug can be closed.
lets call this 10 year old issue wfm and open any new issues with outlook.com separately. Tristan, thanks for the reminder!
