I don't use Hotmail personally, but if you can get into Hotmail with TenFourFox itself, then this is a good sign (they haven't done anything to make TenFourFox technically incapable). The problem is likely something with the foxbox's configuration. Are you using a custom user agent with TenFourFox? Any other special settings? How did you configure it before?

I'm not sure what you mean by "using a custom user agent with TenFourFox?" Is that something to do with my Preferences settings?
Curiously, today the new box that goes to the Microsoft account page rather than directly to my email is working, but only after I refresh the "Something went wrong.." page a couple of times.
I've had this problem occasionally as well, though lately it did annoy me more than usual.
If you change the UA to classilla (Nokia N90), you get served the lite client on TFx as well, but encounter the same issue as a foxbox.
I don't know how a foxbox "spoofs" itself in comparison to the browser to get the lite interface out of the box, but today I got tired of this and tried various UAs. Just "Netscape 3" does not seem to give this problem, but does get the lite interface.
Foxboxes use unique user agent strings to them, not TenFourFox's, though TenFourFox does appear in the string. When you select the option to prevent the website detecting it is in a foxbox, however, it uses a string to emulate an Intel Mac running Firefox.

The original foxbox is working fine this morning, although it went to a Microsoft page that is a step prior to the sign-in page that it was originally set to go to. No "Something went wrong.." messages yet!
