I just tried to use the M$ website using FireFox on XP.
If I click on any link on the M$ index page nothing "NOTHING" happens, unless it opens another browser window.

Has M$ started detecting the browser and stopped letting anything but IE work on their site?

Can anyone else confirm this, please.

FireFox 1.5.0.7

ID 6.0.2900.2180

It's working on me.

Their server probably crashed. It's windows, baby :)

I remember a few years ago someone pointed out that they were running a Linux/Apache setup, and within a few days of word getting out they quickly switched to their own stuff (IIS) -- and then it was a few more days before it was working somewhat reliably...
