I use Firefox to access the team Mantis site

I enter my login info and check "Save login"

I do stuff in Mantis, then close the tab

When I open a new tab, and navigate to Mantis again by bookmark, I have to re enter my login info.

How can I get it to truly save my login?

Does this use NTLM auth?

If so then you need to enable NTLM passthrough in Firefox:

  1. Open Firefox and type about:config in the address bar.
  2. In the ‘Filter’ field type the following network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris
  3. Double click the name of the preference that we just searched for
  4. Enter the URLs of the sites you wish to pass NTLM auth info to in the form of:,

  5. Notice that you can use a comma separated list in this field.

This probably works, but when going through the steps to implement it, I discovered it also works to not bookmark the login page :/ – Matt Nov 18 '10 at 11:00
