Firefox Tracking Flags

(Not tracked)


User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.9; rv:30.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/30.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20140605174243

Steps to reproduce:

Upgraded to Firefox 30 on Mac OS X v10.9.3. Checked all 20+ bookmarks and 2 of them give me an error.

Actual results:

You are not authorized to view this page
You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied because your Web browser is sending a WWW-Authenticate header field that the Web server is not configured to accept.

Please try the following:

    Contact the Web site administrator if you believe you should be able to view this directory or page.
    Click the Refresh button to try again with different credentials.

HTTP Error 401.2 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to server configuration.
Internet Information Services (IIS)

Technical Information (for support personnel)

    Go to Microsoft Product Support Services and perform a title search for the words HTTP and 401.
    Open IIS Help, which is accessible in IIS Manager (inetmgr), and search for topics titled About Security, Authentication, and About Custom Error Messages.

Expected results:

Connected to the site.
Both Web servers appear to be running Microsoft IIS httpd v6.0
Hardware: x86 → x86_64
Also tested this on a Linux Mint 16 VM, with Firefox 30, receive the same message when attempting to connect to the two sites.
Can you confirm the issue on Windows? I guess this is Bug 828183.
Both sites work as expected within a Windows 7 VM running Firefox 30.
So probably Bug 828183. As described here, NTLMv1 auth has been disabled, and there's a workaround for OS X and Linux users:
Blocks: 828183
That fixed it, Thanks for the info.
