With windows IE, I never have to input my domain credentials, it's able to just pass them along. Is there a way to do this for firefox so that whenever i try to access a site within the intranet that asks for credentials, I won;t get prompted?

Simple Answer. You can't. This is zoning facility because of IE's integration into the OS.

Correction apparantly this can be done as per this blog entry.

The setting is simple:

In the address bar in Firefox, type “about:config”
This will show all the settings for Firefox. 
In this list find this key “network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris.” 
This is a comma-delimited list of all host names that you 
want to use NTLM with.
Just enter your host names like this: 
“host1.mydomain.com, host2.mydomain.com”

this works awesomely with intranet sites that run on sharepoint. well, except for the fact that they are usually made for ie rendering and look like poopy on firefox. –  Chuck Aug 25 '09 at 20:11
SP2 has introduced a lot of fixed for SharePoint since it now fully supports Firefox –  Diago Aug 25 '09 at 20:15

I know this is an old question, but it still comes up prominently in Search Engines, so I thought I'd add this.

A change just got released in FireFox 14. Set both of these to true in the FireFox about:config section:

  • network.automatic-ntlm-auth.allow-non-fqdn
  • network.negotiate-auth.allow-non-fqdn

You shouldn't need to add any URIs for this to work. Finally. If you're dealing with one or two hosts, it's fine, but when you have many machines... this is a saviour!

Check out the IE Tab extension. It embeds the IE engine within a Firefox tab, and is frequently used to access corporate intranet sites that are often designed for IE only.

You can configure it to only load for certain sites, so that the normal Firefox engine will be used for all others except those.

Open firefox and enter following address: about:config

Add sites/domains that are trusted into a following params. You can add multiple items by using , as a separator.

  • network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris
  • network.negotiate-auth.delegation-uris
  • network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris
