Firefox and Sharepoint authentication

I like sharepoint, and I like firefox. The two don’t like each other.

To get rid of pesky authentication everytime we login to sharepoint with firefox do as follows:

  1. In firefox address field: about:config
  2. Find network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris
  3. Edit field and add all sharepoint addresses you want to remember password for. Seperate addresses with ,

Note that this assumes that you’ve actually saved the credentials for the site earlier, via Internet Explorer or Credentials Manager.
