i have recently switched to another pc with a fresh new windows XP
installation .
i have also installed Firefox 2.0 on the machine along with IE7.
when i start the localhost homepage in Firefox i get prompted for a
username and password.
Note that this happens only with FireFox , IE is ok !

now i have checked the permissions on the IIS management console , i
have anonymous access and integrated windows authentication both
checked. so i unchecked the windows authentication and haha  now IE
does not display the page as well even if i set the permissions back !!

any ideas on that ?
