    Hello,

    When using the new interface for Hotmail and trying to type a new message, the compose window is blinking five six times, stops blinking for a few seconds and starts again. This is very annoying.
    There is a background advert window for MSN but no others.
    Does anyone know the reason for this?

    Kind regards,

    PeterVO

    Hi PeterVO,

    Are you using a stylesheet?

    You can check in IE under Tools > Internet-options > General tab > Accessibility
    If you find one and you don't know where it came from, please tell me how it is called.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Hello Pieter,

    that was quick. No, I'm not using a stylesheet.

    Kind regards,

    Hi PeterVO,

    That's both good news (no hijack) and bad news (no solution). ;)

    Hopefully someone familiar with Hotmail can help you out.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    I have gone to hotmail several times trying to duplicate your problem. I can't make it do anything to cause your problem. Sorry I could not figgure out the problem. By the way I dislike the new interface at hotmail I think they could have done better.

    'May have something to do with the "Rich-Text Editor" in composing an e-mail to send from your Hotmail account...

    - With the "Compose"d frame open, on the Menu bar, go to:
    > Tools > Rich-Text Editor... and see if you can change it to Plain-Text mode (this is apparently set as your default by cookie modification); not certain of this, but give it a try.
