Outlook.com sign-out redirection

Recommended Posts

68k    290

(Note this query relates to the Australian version of Outlook.com, but may also apply worldwide.)

 

Before Outlook.com was forced upon us, I was able to choose if I wanted to be redirected to the (Hotmail/Live Mail) sign-in page, or http://www.ninemsn.com.au/, after sign-out. Unfortunately, it now seems the only choice is the latter.

 

It is annoying to have to sign in and out between my two accounts (one for work, one for personal) and always having to be redirected to the ninemsn new page (which is a waste of time for me, and a lot of the time NSFW).

 

Are there any ways to change this (I can no longer find a place to change it in "More mail settings")? Is there a way to block and redirect the ninemsn page to outlook.com (in Firefox)?

 

Thanks!

You could always edit the hosts file as well

I hate msn too. I really would like Microsoft not to force it to outlook.com users.

Pictures please - I can't see anything relative in Firefox or Outlook.com settings/options.

Can it be configured to redirect sites?

click on the Firefox tab, Options.

 

You will see Content, Privacy, Security.

 

These have Exceptions button, to Allow or Block web sties, that you Enter.

 

You could Block the ninemsn page.

 

I don't know what your complaint is.

 

I just signed in to the Hotmail.com/Outlook page, looked at an e-mail, then simply clicked the browser window Closed.

 

There was no pop-ups or redirects.

 

I suggest you don't used Tab browsing.

Two of the three have "Exceptions..." buttons, but these have nothing to do with blocking web sites.

The trouble is I have more than one Hotmail (or whatever you'd like to call it) account. Before it was easy to switch between them with the click of a button, however someone at Microsoft decided that this method was no longer secure, and now every time you want to switch to another account, you have to sign-out and sign-in again. However, when I sign-out, I'm automatically redirected to the ninemsn news page! I have to then have to manually go to hotmail.com to sign-in again (to my other account).

 

Okay, I understand that switching accounts as before had security risks, but now forcing me to the ninemsn news page? I find that ridiculous.

 

And of course, if you click on the Hotmail button on the ninemsn page, it has to track you some how.

 

I've been switching between them nearly up to ten times per hour and it's getting annoying.

 

I suggest you don't used Tab browsing.

I've been using tabs since they existed (back in 2001, with Mozilla)!

 

 

I think I've found the solution. Use Firefox for my work Hotmail, and IE for my personal email (to have access to both at the same time). If only Firefox allowed two separate independent instances of itself...

Isn't that what no-remote does?

 

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Command_line_arguments

 

no-remote Enables running multiple instances of the application with different profiles; [1] used with -P

Does not apply to Mozilla Suite/SeaMonkey 1.x firefox.exe -no-remote

 

You can use the -no-remote command line option to start a new Firefox process that is invisible to the first process. [1] By using -no-remote

or with firefox you can click: file/ new private window

i can do this with gmail and be signed into 2 different accounts without having to log out, using the private window to have a secondary account open (my secret email away from the gf lol)

I had this problem with Chrome. I installed an IE Tab extension. I then logged into one account with a normal Chrome tab, then another account in an IE Tab. Works perfectly,
