This method works on Fire TV Stick’s running the oldest software version, which is version 126.96.36.199_user_100211520.
Our experience with the Fire TV has shown us that different software version will handle failed updates differently.
This is good news no matter where you fall on the MSA debate. The first and most obvious is Setup, your first experience with the OS. But you only have to skip one screen, not two: If you choose “skip this step,” you’re simply free to create a local account and get on with your life. Now you’re up and running and you want to try the Mail app.
Windows 8.1 wants you to use a Microsoft account, and it hides the local account option behind two screens: first, you select “Create a new account” on the Sign in to your Microsoft account screen, and then you select “Sign in without a Microsoft account” on the next screen. It doesn’t matter what type of account you intend to use it with, the Mail app in Windows 8.x will prompt you to switch your local account with your Microsoft account.
Even if the post is found in Search, when you go back to the forum, it goes to front page, not to the page where the post is in the listing.
In order to continue using Windows Live Mail 2012 to send and receive email for your account, you need to install the latest update published here.
Microsoft goes on to recommend that users on Windows 8, 8.1, and 10 go ahead and make the switch to the built-in Mail app on each OS.
In my video I use my computer to share its internet connection with the Fire TV Stick so that I have full control of the connection. Instead, you can use your routers settings to stop the connection, or even just pull the power to your modem or router. You can try to follow this method without blocking updates, but be aware that the Fire TV Stick continues to try downloading updates in the background, even after you pass the “Checking for Updates” screen.
This makes it dang fast to load and since the location bar is the same as typing in a search page, it's the same same search. Bob I have the same problem, but today I went to tools - internet option and then copied msn webpage.“You are going to use a Microsoft account,” I wrote flatly.
