Please apply one of the following 3 possible workarounds:

2. Alternatively, this can be fixed by editing the registry settings on Windows Server 2016. After starting the Windows Registry Editor, navigate to the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\HTTP\Parameters. A new REG_DWORD values should be added: EnableHttp2Tls. The value should be set to ‘0’.

After rebooting the Windows Server 2016, IWA would work.

Please check with Mozilla to understand the fix target of this issue, by then such registry change should be undone.
