I am using the Selenium-Firefox-driver and Selenium-Chrome-Driver version 2.0a5 (Web Driver API), and I am trying to test a web app that has BASIC authentication (there is a popup that come up to authenticate the user when I hit whatever page, the popup is not part of the HTML).

Now, I need to a strategy to authenticate the user in Firefox, Chrome and IE (I’m going to import the IE Driver soon).

I was reading in few articles that I can set a Firefox profile for instance..something like:

FirefoxProfile ffProfile = new FirefoxProfile();
ffProfile
.setPreference("network.http.phishy-userpass-length", 255);
WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver(ffProfile);
driver
.get("http://username:password@hostname");

but it doesn’t seem to work for me. Does anyone have a working solution for those browsers?

I got it to work with Firefox webdriver by the following:

profile.SetPreference("network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris", "google.com");
driver
= new FirefoxDriver(profile);
driver
.Navigate().GoToUrl("http://user:pwd@google.com");
