IIS Digest Authentication and Firefox

Im using IIS v6 and Firefox 3.0.10. Digest authentication doesnt work, it works fine in IE but just keeps going round in a loop in firefox. i enter the correct username and password but it clears the fields and asks me again. Ive tried adding the server name to
and network.negotaite-auth.delegation-uris
in about:config in mozilla but its still not working. can this be done? thanks

try entering username with the domain (e.g: DOMAIN\username) or use plain text auth only for firefox.

For Firefox, I think you will have to enable Basic authentication and have the credentials passed in clear text.  Firefox does not CHAP encrypt the credentials so my understanding is that anonymous or Basic (in conjunction to a Windows authentication method) are the only way that it can access IIS.
