When will the Outlook plug-in be fixed? Currently, the window reveals the website

Please try re-installing .NET Framework 4 : http://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/download/details.aspx?id=17851
Also, log out of the plugin, then re-install it while Outlook is still running. Please give those a shot and let us know if it resolves the issue.
We're very sorry for the inconvenience. By "known issue" we mean that it has just been reported by multiple users so we're currently aware of it and we work on it right now.
As a workaround, you could try to install an earlier version of our plugin which shouldn't have this problem. You can get it from this location: https://d2dq6e731uoz0t.cloudfront.net/23ba6af99340be5655be8317812129dd/as/OutlookTodoist.Adx.RC.exe
Please try this one: https://d2dq6e731uoz0t.cloudfront.net/354a36dcf40f6dd891fafdb6d2b97716/as/OutlookTodoist.exe - it doesn't use IE at all, it's on a Chrome (Awesomium) engine.
I managed to get mine working with the 2.1 version plugin. Funny thing is that I had to use this old version on my laptop running Win 8/IE 10/Outlook 2013... but on my work desktop with exactly the same setup the new plugin works great. I think it has to do with which browser you have set to default- if it is Chrome, and you login through the Outlook plugin, it tries to open your account using Chrome, which results in the webpage.
