In Internet Explorer I can set Trusted Sites, how do I do this in Firefox?


MS Internet Explorer browser, in the security settings, has the ability to set "Trusted Sites". Sites that I trust that will not harm my computer and are thus allowed to open pop-ups and other features that are needed to interact with the website.

I am unable to get data feeds when using Firefox and the help desk supporting my application requested me to add their url's as Trusted Sites in my browser. I am able to do this with the MS Browser but I cannot find an equivalent function in Firefox.

Additional System Details

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

This started when...

Firefox doesn't have trusted sites like IE.

You can inspect all permissions for the domain in the current tab in Tools > Page Info > Permissions

There is actually a setting in the prefs.js file that you can set that will add "trusted sites" to Firefox. Open a windows explorer window, browse to your local appdata directory via "%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles". There you should find a subfolder with a ".default" title. Look inside for a "prefs.js" file.

In prefs.js, look for this line: user_pref("network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris"); then simply add the site you want to trust. i.e. user_pref("network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris", "http://www.msn.com"); Open Firefox and viola, trusted site is good to go.

You can also do this in Firefox. Type about:config in the address bar, tell it "I'll be careful, I promise", then look for the entry: network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris Double click it and then add your site using http://<site url here>
