Sorry, Matt; Michele is completely correct. I had the same issues but 
cannot remember how I corrected it. I am sure it is the challenge 
authentication. Have you googled this? I found the solution that way but 
regret I cannot remember exactly where or what I had to do.

The idea is you log on in Firefox with your Windows login credentials, 
if that's any help - you may also have to change a setting to permit this.

So frustrating not being able to remember - the brain cells just won't 
stop dying off.
