As far as I know, in order to access sharepoint, you need ActiveX, and that requires an m$ OS along with IE. I don't think it will work with Firefox (on any platform). On m$ platforms you can use a firefox addon "IE Tab" (or something like that), which in effect loads an IE tab within your firefox browser. But this of course won't work under Linux.

thanks, itried ie tabs ,but not working
As I mentioned, IE Tabs just uses Internet Explorer when you are connecting to sharepoint when using a windows PC. But linux doesn't use the internet explorer and nor does it have ActiveX, so IE Tabs won't work under linux.

One option that might work somehow, is to use PlayOnLinux (which makes using wine easier), and then install Internet Explorer and ActiveX under that. But I don't know whether ActiveX is even available for wine.

The other option that will work, but will also use plenty of resources and a windows license, is to use VirtualBox and install a Windows VM under that.
Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

you are right.I installed wine but no option active x. Do you really think my problem is activex ? can be NTML authentication between linux and sharepoint( windows active directory also)?
Yes the problem is activeX. That is one of those m$ "features" which forces you to use m$ software.

by ways of joining domain - did you nebale kerberos support too? That will allow mutual authentication at least for smbclient. Maybe for firefox too.

Enabling Kerberos Authentication in Firefox
Firefox does not automatically perform Kerberos authentication against any sites. You must manually add sites to a trusted sites list.

To enable Kerberos authentication in Firefox:

Open Firefox and enter about:config in the address bar. Dismiss any warnings that appear.

In the Filter field, enter negotiate.

Double-click the network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris preference.

This preference lists the trusted sites for Kerberos authentication.

In the dialog box, enter the PeopleSoft domain, such as

Click the OK button.

The domain that you just entered in the network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris should now appear in Value column. The setting takes effect immediately; you do not have to restart Firefox
check in /tmp for *ccache** files
If there is any you have kerberos enabled with all ticket refresh needed.
