I'm currently getting a 401 error when I try to access my SharePoint site on Firefox on mac. Usually when I login on a windows computer using FF I'm prompted to enter credentials, but for some reason I am not prompted on the mac? Does anyone know how I can get it to prompt for credentials?

Update: The mac is not connect to the domain, but it is connect to the network through wifi.

  • try to open the site collection this way...sitecollectionurl.com/_layouts/… and it will ask you for different credential...then try to provide the correct user name and passowrd...share the test result. – Waqas Sarwar MVP Sep 23 '14 at 19:06

  • what is the site collection url? – Waqas Sarwar MVP Sep 23 '14 at 19:32

Can you clear your credentials in Firefox? From settings, go to the security tab, click Saved Passwords, and delete the password for your SharePoint site.
