The official answer is no:


Technically, the jCIFS filter doesn't enforce the keepalive
requirement; so in theory it would be possible (and may work using
Mozilla, as I believe their NTLM implementation is also "connection
clean").  But I don't believe you'll be able to get Internet Explorer
working in this scenario, as it will require a persistent connection
to the endpoint.
