firefox also supports automatic ntlm authentication (meaning it 
automatically tries the username and password you're logged onto windows 
with).  this needs to be set by site, so you could do this for localhost 
if you actually want the authentication turned on:

browse to about:config
type "ntlm" in the filter
change the value of network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris to "localhost"
