Description of problem:
To be able to use FF with kerberos SSO one has to follow the instructions like this:
Firefox can use your Kerberos credentials for authentication, but you need to specify which domains to communicate with, and using which attributes.
1. Open Firefox, and type "about:config" in the Address Bar.
2. In the Search field, type "negotiate".
3. Ensure the following lines reflect your setup. Replace ".example.com" with your own kerberos domain, including the preceding period (.):
4. If you are configuring Firefox on Microsoft Windows, make the following changes instead:
5. In Firefox, navigate to the kerberos protected web site and ensure that there are no Kerberos authentication errors, and that you can see and interact with the web site.
