Can't open Microsoft Word document through SharePoint

Since upgrading to Firefox 35, I am no longer able to open Microsoft Word files through SharePoint. When I select "Edit in Microsoft Word," I get the error message "No connectivity with the server. [FILENAME] can't be opened because the server couldn't be contacted."

Note that this is specific to my Mac. I can open Word files on SharePoint when I use my VMWare Windows simulator.

Any suggestions for a fix?

No dice. This is an issue specifically with my Mac connecting to our SharePoint server.

I'm hoping to fix it with a change in Firefox's about:config settings. An earlier issue I had with my Mac connecting to our SharePoint system overall was corrected by altering the network.negotiate-auth.allow-insecure-ntlm-v1 line, but this problem seems to be something new!
