Firefox in Ubuntu : how to automate basic authentication password confirm dialog
I have an ubuntu workstation with firefox always open on a (autorefreshing) web page protected by basic auth.
At startup, I have autologin and automatic firefox start on the page and I have saved the basic auth credentials.
I'd like to confirm in some automated way the username/password dialog box which pops up on the first opening of the page, or I'd like to know if there's any hack to avoid this dialog box.
I tried setting the homepage to http://username:password@myserver/mypage put that doesn't stop confirmation dialog boxes.
