Firefox browser pops up a username and password box

in 1. FileDirector

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.
