When trying to open a pdf attachment, it does not open in the email page, but appears as a file on my desktop.
In Hotmail, Tools-options. In Main, downloads has a prechecked box showing Desktop. If you scroll, there are no options for opening it in the mail window, only in a folder somewhere. I never had this prob until recently.
Had same problem with MSN Live and Hotmail suddenly not opening any email attachments. Suspected a security permissions issue. Used "Move to" on Hotmail menu to move email to "Sent mail" folder. From there, the attachments opened fine because Sent mail folder is a trusted source.

I had problems with hotmail attachments and finally solved it by uploading the latest updates of my browsers, Internet Explorer and Firefox, then updating the latest version of Silverlight. Those actions finally solved my problems.
