WNA and Firefox

Where IE supports Windows Native Authentication sort of 'Out of the Box', Firefox does not. Here's how to enable Windows Native Authentication (WNA) in forefox:
- type 'about:config' in the address bar
- navigate to the entry 'network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris' (tip: set the search filter to "network.negotiate"
- enter the domains you want WNA to act upon, e.g. "home.local".
Multiple domains are to be separated by commas; e.g. "home.local,home.networked" - earlier releases indicate that a leading dot is required (e.g. ".home.local" instaed of "home.local")
