If you are using Firefox 3.6 or higher, you will need to modify your config files for FREDapps to work.

  1. Open Firefox
  2. In the web address bar enter "about:config" (without the quotes) press enter to get to the Firefox config page.
  3. A warning will appear that says "This might void your warranty!" Click the I'll be careful, I promise! button.
  4. Locate the line called network.auth.force-generic-ntlm. While most of this list is alphebetical, the network.auth.force-generic-ntlm appears after the network.IDN listings.
  5. Double click on the network.auth.force-generic-ntlm line to change the value from False to True.
  6. Navigate away from this page by closing Firefox and reopening or by going to a new webpage.
