    Thumbs down Add Trusted Sites in Ubuntu

    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise Pangolin 64-bit

    Is there a way to add trusted sites in Ubuntu? I know how to do it in Windows, but not in Ubuntu. On Windows, it says, "Add trusted site to the zone." I couldn't find an option for this under any of the Network Settings in Ubuntu.

    I don't really want to boot into Windows whenever I have to go to this one site.

    You are referring to Internet Explorer and not Windows the OS.

    So it is a browser thing, depends what browser you are using in Linux.

    If it is Firefox for example then you can do something like this:

    Use address bar and type
    Code:
    about:config
    then scroll to the line that says network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris.

    Double clicking this line will pop up a string entry

    Then enter the URI to suit such as the following:

    ubuntuforums.org, askubuntu.com

    etc using commas between each URI

    also i suggest using NoScript and other extensions to configure what happens on all sites

    I suggest reading the Basic Security Wiki where there is a section and links on how to configure your browser and add-ons such as NoScript.

    Peace
