    Someone please help. My inbox emails have suddenly disappeared from Firefox inbox. I don't know what I may have done, if anything other than to update Firefox to cause it, but would like them back if at all possible. Thanks.

    "Firefox inbox"? Do you mean you are using the Firefox browser to access an email account via web mail interface?

    I haven't used Hotmail in several years, so I'm no longer familiar with its email setup and settings.
    Someone who is can try to help you.

    I can only guess that you inadvertently deleted the messages or that the Microsoft server is suffering a problem.

    No way that I know of. And, there is no "Firefox inbox." When you use a web mail interface the Inbox and other mail folders you see have nothing to do with the browser.

    By the way, make sure you are looking at "View all" and not "View unread" or some other subset.

    I got MailWasher and it I delete the email from MailWasher it moves the email in Hotmail ot Oulook to Delete folder that has a POP sub folder.

    So worth checking to see if you got email there.
