HotmailX Script serving X-notifier 4.x for Chrome

I can offer my solution for Hotmail notification, but choose to do so by adding a separate (renamed) Hotmail script. Because I don't want to cause a conflict with the XN package included Hotmail script...

This solution is not applicable for Firefox that does not offer script upload: all scripts are included in the X-notifier extension for Firefox. Those users will have to wait for the X-notifier update from the single man developer of X-notifier: ToBwithU. (The same goes for X-notifier Neo)

This script is named HotmailX. After download:

  1. Add the HotmailX script at X-notifier Options by clicking the Scripts button
  2. Uncheck the checkbox of all your Hotmail accounts presently in your X-notifier list (the 2 scripts cannot function simultaneously)
  3. Select your default Hotmail account - Select the HotmailX script from the Scripts dropdown and Add the HotmailX account to your X-notifier accounts list. It will show at the bottom of the XN accounts list. You can move it up in order to keep things tidy.
  4. Click the Save button
  5. You can add your other Hotmail accounts the same way.

You can download it here:  HotmailX Script
(Left click the link above and use the download button)

Once tobwithu offers his Hotmail solution, you can easily readdress it (by rearranging the checkboxes in the accounts list) and delete the HotmailX script. (This will delete all HotmailX configured XN accounts)

Thank you for your stuff. Unfortunately, I'm a Firefox user.
Does someone personally know the main developer? Is this guy still alive?
Or is there an alternative to X-notifier?

I don't understand why Firefox would not allow the developer to allow users to use their own scripts with X-Notifier.  I can use my own scripts with other add-ons such as Violentmonkey.

Does saying the developer accepted it mean it will be added to the Firefox version sometime soon?


Unfortunately, it didn't work on Edge :(
