This is strange

I am getting an incorrect password notification on every 1st attempt to go to my e-mail, but getting through on the 2nd attempt. This started about a week ago and at first I thought I must be just making the same repeated mistake, but the regularity has finally hit me and I have very very carefully now put this to the test and yep, what I describe at the start is actually happening. I only need to sign out and instantly go to sign back in for this to occur. Does anyone have any ideas on what this is?

What e-mail client? Operating system? E-mail provider?

Are you being directed to a Phishing site?

Have you turned cookies off? It did something like that when I did

my OS is xp pro and my e-mail ends with which I think is hotmail?
I dont know what you mean by what e-mail client?.
No I am not being directed to a Phishing site, and cookies is not off.

as you can tell i am not up with technical stuff regarding this but do appreciate your comments/questions in effort to help.
Sorry I missed your comments last night.

email client: see the list in the left column. Are you using one of these to send/receive emails.

1 possible cause could be corrupt cookies.
Ccleaner is good & pretty safe for cleaning out junk like that.

(untick any extras you don't want when installing)
