I am using a Mac running OS X 10.9.1, and attempting to log in to a SharePoint 2007 site on a windows domain.

If I use Safari, I access the site (http://mySharePointSite/) and am prompted by the browser for a username and password. I enter 'MYDOMAIN\myUsername' and my password, and am logged in successfully.

If I start a Windows VM, and log in to the domain, then use Internet Explorer, Chrome, or FireFox to access the site, I am prompted by the browser for a username and password. I enter 'MYDOMAIN\myUsername' and my password, and am logged in successfully.

My problem is that if I attempt to access the site from OS X using Chrome or FireFox, I am prompted for my username and password, but entering 'MYDOMAIN\myUsername' and my password does not work - the box simply refreshes and asks me to enter my credentials again, and I am unable to login.

How can I login to this SharePoint 2007 site using Chrome or Firefox on OS X, and what would be preventing it? This does not seem to be a common problem, so I am not sure if the issue is on my side, or on the SharePoint server configuration side.

Is OSX on the domain in the same way? Can you login without the mydomain prefix? –  Raystafarian Jan 3 at 15:27
    
OSX is not on the domain (I didn't realize that was possible, so on the side, I'll investigate that). I can not login without the mydomain prefix, on Windows or OSX. –  BigDave Jan 3 at 16:01
    
Logging into the Active Directory server using OSX does not change the behavior. –  BigDave Jan 3 at 18:33
