When you try to open Microsoft Office documents from a Microsoft SharePoint site that was published through Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway 2010, you may receive multiple authentication prompts before the document opens.
This issue occurs only if you try to access the document directly before you access any other page on the SharePoint site. For example, this issue may occur if you try to access a specific document that you bookmarked. This issue does not occur if you first browse to the SharePoint homepage, the root of the document library, or any other page on the SharePoint site.
