Web test stopped returning results

I've had a test working successfully for awhile, but suddenly it stopped working, and I can't figure out why.

It's a simple http test to http://portal.microsoftonline.com, checking for the phrase "Sign In"

It worked for about 2 years, reporting failures and recoveries just fine, but recently failed and now insists that it's failed all the time, even when it is clearly not.

I think this is a Simon bug, but maybe something that the Microsoft page changed that Simon isn't handling correctly? Or maybe I'm just missing something that I need to change.

The Preview is showing nothing in the "Web (HTTP) Response" section in preview: it's just blank (see attached screenshot).

The "Web (HTTP) Headers" section does have content, but it has a "404: not found" for some reason, which may be part of the problem, because Simon fails the test with a "404", getting it from the header, I guess, but there *is* a response, so maybe Simon needs to ignore the header and get the response?

I tried the "Capture rendered source to include dynamic content after (5) seconds" option, but same thing. I tried https in addition to http and no difference.
This should be easily replicated, because http://portal.microsoftonline.com is a public site.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
John
