Question Mozilla not allowing access to web site


Brand new to Linux and Mozilla. I've been trying to attach to my companys web site. It would normally provide a pop up window that allows you to enter username and password. I'm not getting this. Instead I automatically get access denied. I went into Mozilla and edited the advance feature to allow pop-ups. Any suggestions? thanks.

Thumbs up

A little more detail on my issue. My company has a web site that is for internal use. When I access the site , I try the URL and the next thing that should happen, is the web site returns a login in window. I called this login in window a pop up, becasue it's a small window that requires you to type in your user name and password. At least that's how it works when I'm on a Microsoft Internet Explorer machine. Now that I converted over to Linux and that came bundled with the Mozilla browser, I can't access the company web site. With Mozilla I type in the internal URL and it immediately comes back with access denied. It's not allowing me the option to sign in. thanks.

How does the window look like? Does it look like one from IE or does it look differently? It may be that the website is written for IE only (maybe try to access it with Konqueror, it emulates IE quit nicely).

The site probably requires an authentication method that Mozilla does not support on Linux (called NTLM, if I recall correctly). This is most common when the server is running IIS, since the default is not the "basic auth" that all web browsers support. Mozilla only supports IIS's nonstandard mode under windows, where it can use the windows API to do all the work.

I almost thought bocagolfer was talking about ftp access through the browser (since Windows ME + later versions supported that), however, I then realized that he was talking about an internal website of his company
