  2. In the Search field type network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris and press Enter
  3. Double-click on network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris
  4. In the dialog box that comes up enter the URLs of the sites you wish to pass NTLM authentication info to in the form of http://PVEAuthGW:81

Note: You can add more than one website to this dialog box by separating them with a comma.
