Do the same thing you would in IE ...

Although ... Firefox isn't setup out of the box to use windows integrated security so if your remote folder is secured through windows authentication you will likely have to change some settings in firefox.

Try this ...

1. open firefox
2. browse to "about:config"
3. type "auth" in the search bar above the main window.
4. setup these options to allow firefox to use windows authentication.
5. browse to your remote folder url.

Remember its the server that produces the output not the client, the client merely has to present the user details and the actual resource request.

1. Use as in IE, as my picture below (Firefox 3)

2. If it is difficult Use IE Tab Add-on.
