This issue was resolved by turning on KeepAlive in apache's httpd.conf.  Internet Explorer and Firefox now authenticate with ntlm  in our app with the jcifs servlet filter.  I found the answer at http://www.mail-archive.com/users@tomcat.apache.org/msg39431.html

Thanks to those of you who replied with suggestions.

Subject: ffox ok, ie fails

We have an application that uses the jcifs filter for authentication.  Firefox works fine, but IE displays an error screen.  The server log, after setting the loglevel to 3, says Access Is Denied.  Strangely, it works fine if Fiddler is running.  We can also make it work by using a desktop Apache as the webserver to talk straight to the application server.

Can anyone help?

Relevant specs:
  IE 7 (or 6, same behavior in both)
  Firefox 2 (the 3 beta also works)
  Fiddler 2
  Desktop is XP
  Server is solaris
  Java is sun's 1.6.0_04-b12
  Apache 2
  Jboss 4.0.5
