I installed IIS on a reformatted computer and when trying to access the home page using Firefox I was asked for my username and password. After many tries and permission checkings (check this first!) I used IE and it workedâ€¦ I googled a little bit and found this solution:
1. Open up Firefox and type about:config in the url field
2. In the Filter Type in ntlm
3. Double click â€œnetwork.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-urisâ€ and type in localhost and hit enter
After I did that everything worked ok.
