Hotmail to .... Grrr Hate Web Messenger

So the upgrade Microsoft recently forced from old to has been pretty ok in my books. The interface is clean and pretty snappy performance wise.

One thing I have found that I dislike is the new auto-login to web messenger. I don't need to chat with people, this is my email interface.

Some people suggest blocking via hosts file, however that didn't seem very user friendly. I did however come across this solution which uses ad-block (or ad-block plus) and custom filters in Firefox and seems to work nicely. I didn't go to the step of customizing styles via stylish but I mostly use hotmail from large monitors where giving up 5% width isn't an issue.

Great Instructions - Disable Messenger auto-login on hotmail or web mail interfaces
