If the OnBase Patient Window is configured for autologin using Active Directory authentication, Firefox users who access the application will be prompted for their credentials by the browser. To allow Firefox users to access the OnBase Patient Window without being prompted, use the following workaround.

Note:

The following steps affect only the current workstation and the currently logged-on user. For enterprise deployments, the specified settings would need to be modified in the pref.js file found in each user's Firefox profile. Consider using the tools described at the following site: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Deployment:Deploying_Firefox#Deployment_Tools

To allow Firefox users to access the OnBase Patient Window without being prompted:

  1. Open Firefox.
  2. Type about:config into the address bar.
  3. Click I accept the risk! if prompted.
  4. Locate the following settings by typing trusted in the Search field provided:
    • network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris(for NTLM)

    • network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris(for Kerberos)

  5. Double-click each setting and enter a comma-delimited list of trusted web servers. For example:

    srv-web001,srv-web002,srv-web003

    When a Firefox user accesses the OnBase Patient Window through any of these servers, the browser will not prompt the user for credentials.

  6. Restart Firefox. If the user who logged on to the computer has permission to access the OnBase Patient Window's virtual directory, the browser will not prompt the user for credentials.
    Note:

    If you encounter the error HTTP Error 401.1 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to invalid credentials, see the Microsoft KB article located at the following URL: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/871179

    Note:

    To allow Mac users to log on using Active Directory authentication, you may need to perform additional steps outside the scope of this documentation. Consult a Mozilla Firefox reference source for more information.
