Just open Firefox and go to hotmail.com instead of clicking the tab on msn messenger.

Ooooooh. I thought you meant when you clicked on a link in Firefox. Go to Start-Program Access and defaults-custom-Use my current web browser-disable access to Internet explorer.

'Tis what I do, and it works fine.

thats coz msn is by microsoft, wich makes IE, so it always open in IE.

For the default browser thing:
Go to "set program access and defaults"
Go to the "custom" drop-down list.
There will be an option for choosing firefox as your default browser.

usually when you download Firefox it's set to ask you if you want it as your default browser when you open it.

if I remember correctly Firefox gives you that option when you install it. If it doesn't than it's up to the user which (IE or FF) they want to set as default.
