Thank you for filing this bug.

What version of (K)ubuntu and KDE are you using?
Are you getting the same problem as here: http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=126207 ?

Yes, i think it is the same bug.
The bug is present on KDE 3.5.5 of Debian Etch and also in KDE 3.5.6 of Kubuntu Feisty Fawn.
I only have tested the bug in these two linux distributions and KDE versions.

I have a similar problem: if I go to the www.hotmail.com site and try and log in, I wind up at the "The e-mail address or password is incorrect" page. If I then type in my password again it logs in fine. Not exactly critical, but very annoying.

This is on Feisty, but it also happened on Edgy (I think with 3.5.5, but I'm not sure).

I can confirm this bug in Debian Etch, KDE 3.5.5 too.

Yes, it's present in Gutsy with KDE 3.5.8 too.

I am currently running Kubuntu Gutsy, Konqueror 3.5.9 . Hotmail would not load at www.hotmail.com, returning a Server Error. I investigated my settings based on the site working in Firefox. I had previously set Konqueror not to send its identification under Preferences>Browser Identification. I changed this to send identification, and Hotmail loaded correctly. Sending mail with attachments worked fine also.

The issue with having to login twice is confirmed nonetheless.

On the other hand I can access hotmail and the inbox but I can't open any mail. It's like the links are unclickable. When I point the mouse over a mail the icon changes to the hand but no matter how many times I click nothing happens.

This is on Kubuntu Gutsy + KDE 3.5.9

Thank you
