Firefox Friday #3 – SharePoint Login Prompts on Firefox
If you are using Firefox as your default browser, then either you get
an IE tab add-on to view SharePoint sites in Firefox, or type your user
name and password each time when you access to the SharePoint server.
There is a way thought to allow you to save your typed Windows
credentials in Firefox to prevent you from repeatly typing the Windows
user name and password.
- Enter “about:config” in the address bar of Firefox and hit [Enter]
- Do a search on "ntlm", at least three entries should appear
- Double click the entry titled
"network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris" and set its value to .yourdomain (do not
forget the dot). You can have multiple domains by entering them as comma-separated.
- Restart your Firefox to get it to kick in.
Woila! No more irritating login prompts. This only works with NTLM authentication and not Kerberos.
