Enabling WebSSO / Kerberos Auth in Firefox

I've been using Chrome for a while, but i recently switched back to Firefox, at least for work (mostly for memory usage reasons).

 XMarks makes the back and forth transition a piece of cake. The only issue that i had was with Kerberos / WebSSO which was enabled by default on Chrome but not Firefox.

Its a simple configuration change though. all you need to do is access the settings by typing "about:config" in the address bar and search for the following items:
  • network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris: value=,
  • network.negotiate-auth.delegation-uris : value=,

  • network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris: value=,
  • network.automatic-ntlm-auth.allow-proxies: value=true

  •  network.negotiate-auth.allow-proxies: value=true

And you're good to go.
