Cannot Access Enterprise Identity Management WebUI From Client After Updating to Mozilla Firefox 17

Solution Unverified - Updated -


Firefox can use Kerberos credentials to authenticate to the IPA WebUI, but Kerberos negotiation needs to be configured to use the IPA domain. Changes made, with the release of Mozilla Firefox 17, do not allow for automatic configuration via the browser on RHEL6.3/IPA2.2 clients.
