Old Mac OS X 10.1.5 Gets Blank Screen at www.hotmail.com

I am refurbishing a Macintosh G4 running OS 10.1.5 and Firefox 1.02, and am unable to logon to Hotmail. (I am using these old versions because I cannot upgrade past OS 10.1.5.)
Whenn I arrive at Sign In I get a blank screen. The page looks like it is loading but never shows. The only message I get is "Connection to live.login.com is secure (RC4-128)" at the bottom of the page.
The same problem occurs with Internet Explorer 5.1.
I was able to access hotmail with I.E before replacing a dead hard drive and reinstalling the OS.

Any thoughts?

Tom I've been searching around and cannot find any modern browser compatible with Puma. IE 5 is ancient and likely why Hotmail won't work with it.

You can try an older build of Camino from here: Camino. Releases. 0.8.5 It says it works with Puma and is likely your best bet since it's a Mac specific browser.
