You'll need to download the Webmail and Webmail-Hotmail extensions to make it work.
After that, it's just entering the info.

EDIT: might wanna google it instead of searching for it on Mozilla's extension database, cuz I never find what I want with its search engine.... and the instructions are on the official site too

with hotmail it is a little more interesting as they do nto offer pop3 access anymore and only web access, same thing with the msn accounts. the only way to go around this would be grab some sort of plugin that will interface with the website and log in and check that awy.

this was just found by a quick google search.

I never had it working for some reason. I installed Webmail and the plug ins and they never worked and gave up and went back to Windows Live Mail. WLM is pretty good though.
