Recently I had to repair XP MCE on my Inspiron 6400, which I did using the original disc and not the recovery console, but since doing this Firefox and IE will no longer retain my Hotmail password when I choose the "Save my e-mail address and password" option. A few minutes after I close the tab or browser, then launch it again and load Hotmail it has my e-mail address prefilled, but I have to retype my password; it has never done this before. Sometimes Firefox prompts about not recognising license c.msn.com, but it doesn't matter if I accept it or not, I still have the problem. IE7 doesn't and has never prompted about the c.msn.com license. I've tried deleting all cookies and even uninstalling Firefox and installing it again all to no avail. It has always worked in IE and Firefox 1.5 and 2 before the repair. I'm all out of ideas, please can you help me? Edit: I've just gone onto the desktop, which has XP Home, and it's doing the same thing and works fine until it uses the c.msn.com license, so at least it's not the repair. I assume there's something wrong with Hotmail's license.
