MSN Spaces not working in Firefox?

Sometimes you may try visiting a friend's MSN Spaces blog in Firefox and get a message saying, "This space is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later." However it seems to work fine in Internet Explorer.

This isn't typical discrimination against users on the grounds of browser usage (or is it? I think we should be told...) so much as a misleading error message. It happens when your friend has set their MSN Space to be visible only to their friends. Clicking on "Sign in" in the top right hand corner and logging in with the e-mail address and password that you use for MSN Messenger to contact them should let you in.

Shouldn't Microsoft give a more informative message here?
