Outlook.com in Australia: Remove the pesky Ninemsn bar

Today Microsoft released a new web mail service, Outlook.com. It is really nice. Clean and simple, what Gmail used to be.

However, Microsoft always have to ruin a good thing by trying to do a little bit of country specific branding. In Australia, it’s ninemsn (which hopefully dies one day, it’s holding Microsoft back.) Anyway, every time you log into your shiny new Outlook inbox, you will see the following:

It just ruins a good thing, especially when it sometimes causes the search box to be covered by the blue bar in a bug that happens occasionally (not shown in screenshot.) However, it’s nothing a simple Greasemonkey script can’t take care of.

Download here. Should work on Chrome, and Firefox with the Greasemonkey extension installed.

Update 2/Aug/2012
Unfortunately, with a very recent update to Chrome, Google have made it difficult to install extensions. I’ll look into putting it in the web store, but it seems like such a simple extension that it shouldn’t need to be in the web store. There is a way to add it to Chrome on this help page.

Update 3/Aug/2012
Looks like Microsoft has listened, and a “fix” is on it’s way. Hopefully their definition of fix is the same as everyone else, and it will involve removing it completely.

Update 3/Aug/2013
New version to remove additional space on the right that Ad Block doesn’t remove.

    Perfect man! This is exactly what I was looking for. To hell with ninemsn.

    Legend! Thank you

  3. Hi Anonymous,

    This script will fix that by removing the ninemsn bar completely (for the inbox section at least.) Recently when I haven’t had the script enabled (because I was tweaking it) the search box issue hasn’t been happening as much as it was, but it still happens.

    Hendo, as I’m not too pc savvy, can you explain to me in laymans terms how to delete ninemsn bar. I use Internet Explorer as my search engine.

    Don’t panic, I fixed it, just changed the English US to English UK….

    Cheers, Mary

  12. +1 for changing to English UK 🙂

  13. Yep I ended up using UK English – works fine except for the calendar, but I don’t use the calendar that often so it’s not a biggie.

    1. New Smyrna Beach, Florida
    Entitled as the shark capital of the world by the Guinness book of world record, the New Smyrna Beach is listed as one of the top 10 Florida beaches by the Florida International University. Out of the 112 shark attacks worldwide in 2007, new Smyrna beach reported 17 of them.
    2. Heart Island, Antarctica
    Known for its intensely cold waters, the Heart Island is actually a Giant Volcano, 4100 km South West of Perth. Although owned by Australia, it’s much closer to Antarctica than anywhere else.
    3. Cape Tribulation, Australia
    This Northern Queensland Beach is a dwelling place for a number of exotic creatures one may need to be wary of. Besides crocodiles, the emu-like Cassowaries and Box Jellyfish also swarm the waters near the beach.
    4. Praia De Boa Viagem, Brazil
    Before the year of 1992, Reports of Shark Attacks were unheard of along the sandy beach near Recife, Brazil. Environmentalists suggest that the appearance of fishing boats that may have disrupted the ecosystem of the area, are to blame.
    5. Shenzhen, China
    Shenzhen Beach, located just across the border from Hong Kong, is locally well-known tourist hotspot which can get challengingly congested at times. This sometimes makes the area accident-prone.
    6. Playa Zipolite, Mexico
    This amazing beach centered around a comforting environment is located on the Southern Coast of Oaxaca. This beautiful stretch is humorously known as “the beach of the dead”. The shore is sometimes prone to hugewaves that cause undercurrents. Specially trained lifeguards are deputed along the beach, owing to which the number of drowning cases have lowered.
    7. Staithes beach, Yorkshire
    While it may not be the most popular beach, the Staithes beach in the UK is known for its surfing culture. The marine conservation society states that its water cleanliness level doesn’t match up to the basic European Standards for bathing sports. The residual deposits from the farmer’s fields could be the likely cause. Most activities on this not-so-famous beach includes surfing and paddle sports.
    8. Hanakapiai Beach, Hawaii
    The Hanakapiai Beach is one of most beautiful known beaches in Hawaii, although its rather remotely located. Lifeguards are yet to be stationed on this beach. The beach waters are calm and tranquil for the most part, with powerful rip currents surfacing from time to time. 83 known drowning cases have been reported over the years mostly due to underestimation of the wave current.

    Есть такая услуга – добровольное медицинское обслуживание (или ДМО).
    Она предполагает, что вы платите небольшую сумму за абонемент и посещает врачей целый год бесплатно.
    Однако соцопросы показывают, что лишь 3% жителей Санкт-Петербурга знают о такой услуге.
    По какой причине?
    Да потому что клиникам намного выгодней брать плату за каждый визит.
    А если какой-нибудь сотрудник клиники посоветует добровольное медицинское обслуживание клиенту – это сулит ему увольнением.
    Информация о ДМО уже вызвала кучу скандалов, сразу после того как информацию об услуге рассекретил один врач.
    Его уволили “по собственному желанию”, после того, как он предложил ДМО постоянному клиенту.
    Страшно, что официальные положения по ДМО присутствуют в открытом доступе, просто находили на эту информацию единицы.
    Как отстоять свои права?
    О правилах предоставления услуги и обязанностях частных клиник можно узнать, просто вбив в Яндекс фразу: “добровольное медицинское обслуживание”.
    Обязательно обслуживание, а не страхование.

I think that the thousands of little gremlins that hold concrete and steel together went on a sympathy strike because Boneheaded Conspiracy Nuts like yourself stopped paying off their sister union, The Loyal Order of Gremlins that Inhabit Brains of Idiots. Remember, when you don’t take your meds, gremlins will eat your brain.
