Firefox keeps prompting for password

  spras 15:03 23 Oct 2008

Firefox insists on showing a password prompt every time I log on to my companys intranet. IE does not, I believe becuase it has the intranet sites added to a list of trusted sites. While Firefox will remember the username and passwords by filling in the log in prompt the fact that it insists on showing it is incredibly annoying, is there any way to stop this behaviour?

then try changing the network.negotiate-auth.allow-proxies to false from true by double clicking on it.

You can always reverse it if it doesn't work.

No luck, was already set to true. I've also tried adding a URL to network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris and network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris to no avail

I think you have to change it to false

haha sorry I didn't read your first post properly, I'll try that when I get in to work tomorrow. Thanks for your help

good luck.

If it doesn't work, Google you problem and I'm sure you'll find a solution, particularly on the Mozilla Forum.

Still nothing unfortunatly.

I have tried:

network.negotiate-auth.allow-proxies - toggle to true

network.negotiate-auth.delegation-uris - adding a URL

network.negotiate-auth.gsslib - adding a URL

network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris - adding a url

You could try the latest Beta version which I am using and is fine click here

It will install separately so you wont lose the version that you currently have.

Unfortunatly that hasn't solved it, but thanks for your suggestions so far.

I've narrowed down exactly what in IE is creating this behaviour (of auto login to intranet) - it seems FF either does not have this behaviour included or has it disabled by default (as it's a potential security risk if a desktop is left unlocked).

In IE if you go Tools>Internet Options>Security Tab > Select 'Local Intranet' > Click 'Custom Level' and scroll to the bottom > The 'User Authentification' section allows 4 options:

Anonymous Login - Gives me an 'Access Denied' error when selected
Automatic Login only in Intranet Zone (Default) - Allows this auto-login behaviour
Automatic logon with current username and password - Same behaviour as above
Prompt for username and password - Prompts regardless of whether username and password has been 'remembered' or not

I don't know if that will give anyone any ideas of how to alter Firefoxs settings?
