Disable Firefox Login Prompt

Issue: the customer configured firefox to automatically log into a site using the format  Mozilla Firefox now prompts the user telling them "You are about to log in to the site".

Solution: After much searching, we discovered it is simply a missing value in the FireFox Config.
  1. Open Firefox
  2. type  about:config  in the address bar & hit enter
  3. WARNING: modifying these settings could affect the installation/performance of FireFox
  4. Right Click - New Integer
  5. Name = network.http.phishy-userpass-length
  6. Value = 100 (value options are 1-256, start at 100 and reduce to the length of your special URL)
  7. Close & re-open FireFox & give it a try!
