Wow, its 1:30AM Eastern Time, and MSN Live is acting weird: clicking on the search results does not transfer me to the actual site (I am on Firefox). All it says in the status bar is "Transfering data from search.live.com..." while the browser is not doing anything.

I guess their Windows server is down ;)

Try it: [search.live.com...]

Actually, it seems to be a problem with Firefox, because it is happening all the time on my machine: left clicking on a SERP result in Firefox (1.0.7) does not load the search results. Right clicking and forcing the opening of the results in a new tab succeeds in getting the results to load. Anyone else has noticed this?

Works fine in Firefox/2.0 [mozilla.com] -- No problems whatsoever.

Of course, like Google, they undoubtedly have many many servers in many data centers, so you may be connecting to one that is broken.
