Hotmail Script serving X-notifier 3.x for Firefox

You can download it here: Hotmail Script
(Left click and download using the button that will appear at top-right next to the Share button)

Just add it as external script. It will automatically replace the included script with the same name.
(Reloaded users can do the same, in case the included script didn't reach the Reloaded release yet)

Thank you Jeroen!

I'm trying to download, but I've get the code, where should I replace that code?





I got it after some search:

And renamed it to hotmail. (Using the hotmail+beta name was not such a good idea)
After reverting to the hotmail script, you can delete the hotmail+beta script.

I am Mac user... with Firefox ESR and XN 3.5.25

When I load your hotmail.js, and it disappears all Hotmail host!

Let me know what I can help you in private email.

Thanks, CFBancroft


For Macintosh User:

Can not use (Left click and download from Dropbox)

You need to just click on Hotmail Script and copy from website
and paste into TextWrangler and save and type exactly hotmail.js

I got Bad Request... when I click "Sub-folder"...
but I click normal Hotmail host... no problem.

I did send screenshot to jeroen in private email...
He will review and let me know. Thanks.

1. Do you wait long enough to see the Download button appear next to the blue Share button in the right corner of the dropbox page? Screenshot

2. Send me the hotmail.js file you created by copy/paste (as an attachment of your mail, not as copy/paste text in your mail). Change the extension from .js to .txt before you do so to prevent safety measure of gmail. (hotmail.txt)

CFB: "When I load your hotmail.js, and it disappears all Hotmail host!"
That must be caused by using the dropbox html instead of the correctly downloaded script. When you don't see the date in the popup for adding scripts that means your script contains syntax error(s).

By back-engineering the hotmail (and yahoo) script from vs 4, I lost the functionality from vs 3 XN sidebar / window. I will correct it when I find the time.

Redownload and add to replace the hotmail script.

It solved.

This script stopped working for me yesterday.  Anyone else having an issue with this script and Hotmail (both the beta and non- beta)?

As of today, it's working on my three hotmail/ accounts... two beta, one not.

Looks like the script I was using was called "hotmail+beta" (not sure if this was the same script as the one in this thread).  Anyway, I downloaded the current one in this thread and changed my accounts to use it and it appears to be working now...

Thanks for the reply!


Didn't see that info, I guess I was distracted.  Since the old script just stopped working a couple days ago for me, I guess I didn't think any info a month old would be pertanent.

Anyway, thanks for keeping this script updated.  I still haven't moved to Firefox 57 due to so many addons not being compatible yet.  Also, when I checked out X-Notifier 4.x when if first came out, I didnt like it, not sure if it has gotten any better since then.


Thanks for the script update! X-Notifier is one of my favorite FF extensions and I was missing it since Palemoon and FF differences deepened (making new versions not compatible) and mail provider changed the login process which breake most scripts...

... though I think I found it too late since it's not working for me (on Palemoon 27.7).

Anyone can confirm the script is broken?

Best regards


PS: Anyone has a working Office 365 script (the 2015 one is broken)? I have 2 professional email accounts there

Just installed the new version(3.5.26) but Outlook is still not working...

The beta interface got changed and therefore didn't get recognized by the script.

Hi... Jeroen and I have been having trouble with CAPTCHA preventing us from posting/replying.
He says  you: "should reload the hotmail script from my dropbox in case he uses 2-step verification 
(I applied the last 2nd fix for 2-step verification of Byungwook)."

When you use 2-step verification, reload the script at this thread's top post:
