I get the same thing with 3.1 beta2 on OS X. The hotmail page says loading on the bottom left corner, and none of my messages will display. Nor will any of the dropdowns work.
Ever confirmed: true

Same issue with not being able to open any messages in hotmail as previous post (this was also happening in Beta 1, which was why I uninstalled it). I see a "Loading..." message, at the bottom left of hotmail, but nothing opens up. Also tried this from Firefox in safe mode - same results. OS is Vista-64 Enterprise on an Intel Xeon processor.

I get the same problem in Mac os X. I can go to the inbox page but cannot open any message. I can not delete any message either. I am experiencing this problem in firefox 3.1 beta 3

I can log into hotmail but once I do nothing is clickable. I cant open emails. I cant send or deleate or any other function sence I let Firefox install the update. I uninstalled. I ran my virus program. I went to an earlyer restore point 3 weeks earlyer and reinstalled Firefox and I still can't use my hotmail or live email with Firefox.

I can use all the functions in Internet explorer 8. I dont like useing this but If I have to reply to an email from my account I have no other choice. 

If a fix to this is found I hope this will come in a update soon.

I'm having the same problems listed as comment 9.  Unable to open any e-mails or open any hyperlinks, click on anything.
Is this still an issue?
