Ubuntu Add trusted sites / "Mimic" the IE Security tab on Linux Ubuntu

Hello, I'm new here and although I have used Linux environments here and there for many years (mainly at college) I'm far from being a "pro". I spent hours searching this question, so I hope I won't repeat threads (chances are low though).

The question is: how can I mimic or replicate the behavior of the Windows Internet options / IE options, under the security tab to add an URL to the Local Intranet?

Long explanation: I work as a performance tester (a new one, for whom asks why am I asking this silly question) and I must access a website through a VPN, and that way the server "sees" my computer under its own network and let me access to a webserver that I must test. The thing is, after hitting the main page a login popup appears, breaking the consistency of the script we're recording. A developer passed me a tutorial saying that "adding that URL to the Local Intranet would avoid the appearance of the login popup".

For those who don't know what I'm talking about, here a couple of screenshots (I obscured the customer's URLs for obvious reasons):



Thanks in advance.

PS: yes, I know for sure on Linux these settings must have a different name, but the tutorial I read was written by a dev using a Windows environment and I really don't know how to match "for-dummies" Windows settings with "lower" level settings on Linux.

apt-key - APT key management utility SYNOPSIS
apt-key [--keyring filename] {add filename | del keyid | export keyid | exportall | list | finger | adv | update | net-update | {-v | --version} | {-h | --help}} DESCRIPTION
apt-key is used to manage the list of keys used by apt to authenticate packages. Packages which have been authenticated using these keys will be considered trusted. COMMANDS
add filename Add a new key to the list of trusted keys. The key is read from the filename given with the parameter filename or if the filename is - from standard input. del keyid Remove a key from the list of trusted keys. export keyid Output the key keyid to standard output. exportall Output all trusted keys to standard output. list List trusted keys. finger List fingerprints of trusted keys. adv Pass advanced options to gpg. With adv --recv-key you can download the public key. update Update the local keyring with the archive keyring and remove from the local keyring the archive keys which are no longer valid. The archive keyring is shipped in the archive-keyring package of your distribution, e.g. the debian-archive-keyring package in Debian. net-update Perform an update working similarly to the update command above, but get the archive keyring from a URI instead and validate it against a master key. This requires an installed wget(1) and an APT build configured to have a server to fetch from and a master keyring to validate. APT in Debian does not support this command, relying on update instead, but Ubuntu's APT does. OPTIONS
Note that options need to be defined before the commands described in the previous section. --keyring filename With this option it is possible to specify a particular keyring file the command should operate on. The default is that a command is executed on the trusted.gpg file as well as on all parts in the trusted.gpg.d directory, though trusted.gpg is the primary keyring which means that e.g. new keys are added to this one. FILES
/etc/apt/trusted.gpg Keyring of local trusted keys, new keys will be added here. Configuration Item: Dir::Etc::Trusted. /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/ File fragments for the trusted keys, additional keyrings can be stored here (by other packages or the administrator). Configuration Item Dir::Etc::TrustedParts. /etc/apt/trustdb.gpg Local trust database of archive keys. /usr/share/keyrings/debian-archive-keyring.gpg Keyring of Debian archive trusted keys. /usr/share/keyrings/debian-archive-removed-keys.gpg Keyring of Debian archive removed trusted keys.
