Firefox browser pops up a username and password box -

If you use Firefox browser and you are using FileDirector web without forms authentication, you should see that in IE it logs straight in but Firefox keeps popping up a username and password box on first login.

You can overcome this by following this procedure:

  • In the address bar enter: about: config
  • Agree to the warning
  • search for (or create)
  • network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris
  • Right click and modify
  • now add the name of your filedirector server such as: hamilton, localhost, sharepoint, sbs2010 etc

That’s it. Now it should recognise and trust your FileDirector server.
