No luck... Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I also have WindowsXP Professional English, Firefox 9.01 En/US, Hotmail English language with the option "always use https" in hotmail account setting, but it still doesn't work... I've also tried with "don't use https" with the same result.
Anyway, thank you for your effort.
