How can I make firefox behave like IE on a windows domain when requesting user credentials

With windows IE, I never have to input my domain credentials, it's able to just pass them along. Is there a way to do this for firefox so that whenever i try to access a site within the intranet that asks for credentials, I won;t get prompted?

"Simple Answer. You can't.
This is zoning facility because of IE's integration into the OS.

Correction apparantly this can be done as per this blog entry.

The setting is simple:

In the address bar in Firefox, type “about:config”
This will show all the settings for Firefox.
In this list find this key “network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris.”
This is a comma-delimited list of all host names that you
want to use NTLM with.
Just enter your host names like this:
“host1.mydomain.com, host2.mydomain.com”"

"Open firefox and enter following address: about:config

Add sites/domains that are trusted into a following params. You can add multiple items by using , as a separator.

network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris
network.negotiate-auth.delegation-uris
network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris"
