1. sorry I miss this one.  I think you mixed up firefox and thunderbird
making it a Firebird which is a database (used to be Interbase).

2. Seriously , though you can download hotmail thru Outlook for a fee ,
the last time I checked, hotmail is not integrated with thunderbird.
Therefore you can only use web mail.

3. If you want to have a free email account that has POP maybe I can
invite you to gmail so you can have a gmail account and get rid of
hotmail and maybe solves your problem. 

4. If your hotmail account is too important, try the non-free cross-over
office that will let you run office 2000 or XP not 2003 in linux.
