When I log into hotmail, I cannot select part of an e-mail and print just the selection. This will work with other borowsers.
I can print an entire e-mail when I log into Hotmail using Firefox, but if I select part of the e-mail and tell the printer to print the selected part, all I get is a blank page coming from the printer.
I can print the selected text if I use Internet Exlporer as a browser to log into Hotmail.

My dad told me he had this 'no selection' problem when he wanted to print out a selection in Hotmail, so I had a hunt around, but didn't find a definitive solution.
So, I have done some playing around, and have come up with this solution which works if you want to print out a selection in Hotmail (using firefox), but it is now greyed out.
It seems to be connected with the way that Hotmail handles frames.
(Thought I would post it as posts like this have helped me a ton in the past :0))
To print a selection in hotmail you need to do this.
1/ On the email you want to print click the small Printer icon in the hotmail menu.
There is no need to highlight a selection at this stage because the email is in a frame, so it will do no good anyway.
2/ A new page will open up and the printer dialog box will open up.
Close the printer dialog box.
3/ Highlight the text selection that you want to print on that page.
4/ Press Ctrl-P on the keyboard.
5/ The printer dialog box will now pop up again and you will be able to choose 'Selection'
Your selection will now print.
Thank you. I tried it and it works.
