Hi linux_dejan!

To uninstall Mozilla under Debian, uses Debian's package manager, apt-get. As root, type:

apt-get remove mozilla

Your security program is pretty normal. Microsoft has changed a little bit their system and requires the browser to be with SSL active. Go into www.mozilla.org and download either Mozilla or Firefox (I recommend firefox, it's very nice and fast, but has less features). The problems you are having with your obsolete Mozilla and hotmail will be gone with a new Mozilla!

Good luck!

ghehe weird Try:

apt-get update

apt-get install synaptic

Synaptic is a graphical interface for apt. Call it from a terminal and locate Mozilla there, then remove it, then get a new one from www.mozilla.org.
