Windows Live ID Bug

Okay, this has been going on for…years now.  I just got so used to it that I didn’t really notice it.  That’s not quite accurate.  I noticed it, but got used to it.

Anyway, the bug is very simple.  Every time I need to log into Hotmail or any other Microsoft service that requires a Live ID (most recently, Azure Services), I have to login twice.  The first time, I am told my email address and/or password is incorrect, then I use the same info again, and it works.

Now, it may be that I have some neural glitch that I incorrectly type my password EVERY SINGLE TIME the first time and then correctly type my password EVERY SINGLE TIME the second time, but I doubt it.  I tend to always save my email address so I only have to enter my password.  And I use Maxthon as my IE type browser instead of IE itself.  I should remember to test different combinations of browser.

But, it is really weird.

I've got the same problem. It drives me crazy.

Same thing with me in plain IE or Safari. After seeing that so many times, my routine was to type gibberish in the password field the first time, just in case it's a hijack attempt.
